New product "HAA for bath Hibi (5 packets)" will be available online starting November 1. We recently released an announcement and have received a great response.
Prior to the online sales, some TSUTAYA BOOKS stores have been selling the product 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.
Therefore, we would like to introduce a wonderful selection of books in the journal. In this autumn season of reading, please take a look at our book selection.
Five books selected on the theme of "A New Wind"
"A New Wind" was created with the image of a scene when turning a new page in life or giving a cheer with a positive attitude.
The wrapping paper is based on the color of young leaves, which evokes excitement and rebirth.
The "days" are written on each wrapping paper. We would like to introduce the book selections of all the expressive people who have contributed, along with their comments.
