The new HAA for bath Hibi (5 packets) is about to go on sale online on 11/1.

Prior to the online sales, TSUTAYA BOOKS has been selling the product at some of their stores since 9/27. (Please check here to see which stores are participating.)

At TSUTAYA BOOKS, the venue for the pre-sale, 15 artists who wrote about their "daily life" have chosen a book that matches the theme of each book and are displaying it with their products.

So we would like to introduce you to a wonderful selection of books in the journal.

Following yesterday's "A New Wind", we would like to introduce the book selections for "The Day I Looked Up at the Sky". We would like to introduce you to the book selections that we have received.

Five books selected for "The Day I Looked Up at the Sky"

"The Day I Looked Up at the Sky" was created with the image of a scene to convey feelings of labor to those who have crossed a major life mountain, such as childbirth, retirement, or job change. The word "Hibi" is stamped in foil in iridescent colors. The color changes depending on the angle, just like the color of the sky, which varies depending on who is looking at it.

"Hibi" is written on each wrapping paper. We would like to introduce a selection of books by all the expressive people who contributed, along with their comments.

"Blue Sky" selected by Takahiro Tsunoda.

Comment
The blue sky Some people are afraid to look up. After reading this book, I began to think about that every time I look up at the sky. It may be something you can never understand if you live in peace. In Ukraine, where the national flag with the wheat field and blue sky is impressive, there are still many people who hide underground and are afraid of the blue sky. May we never forget such imagination.

Comment
I received the news that my father passed away. I got the news that he had passed away. On the road to my parents' house, the too beautiful sunset I saw from the car my brother was driving sometimes comes back to me with a twinge of emotion in the back of my nose.
Whenever I am confronted with parting or loss, it is always "words" that pull me up. Words are the ones that gently share our grief and pain, and allow us to spend time together in acceptance.... I open this book many times and find words that feed my heart.

Shin Taku Kamioka's Choice for "Touching the rough and tumble".

Comment
When I look up at the sky, I naturally breathe more deeply than usual. This is a book of essays that will allow you to relive that feeling of looking up from everyday life, where it is difficult to catch your breath, and reflecting on yesterday.

Comment
"Me? ? / This is a very conceited / person." (from the poem "Self-Introduction")
An anthology of poet Yamanokuchi Baku's autobiography. The selection is very good. Reading Baku's magnificent poems, even our spirits are lifted. He is so natural. The sky that he looks up at with such a big heart must be very honest.

Nochi Kosei's "Dictionary of the Sky".

If every day seems somewhat monotonous, gently open this book. By realizing once again that "even the sky we usually see from the same window has a different name, color, and expression each day," we can remember the love we have for each day. Please immerse yourself in the world of the sky woven with beautiful photographs and words.

Autumn reading season, a book in your hand

We are pleased to present a wonderful selection of books for "The Day I Looked Up at the Sky".

Autumn is a particularly beautiful time of year when the sky is in transition. The scaly clouds that fill the sky during the daytime and the magnificent sunsets that appear only for a moment in the evening make us think, "Today was another good day," and "Let's do our best tomorrow.

In this beautiful autumn season, please pick up one of the many books about the sky that we have introduced here. They will surely embrace you and gently push you forward.
