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.

After "A New Wind" and "The Day I Looked Up at the Sky," which we have been introducing every day, we would like to introduce the book selections for "A Modest Love".

5 books selected for "A Modest Love".

We created it with the image of various kinds of love in daily life, such as birthdays, wedding celebrations, and casual gifts.
The wrapping paper is designed with warm colors. The word "Hibi" is stamped in erased silver foil, creating the image of a sparkle that is always in your heart.

Hibi" is written on each wrapping paper. Here are the book selections by the contributors, along with their comments.

"Elephant Mame Pao" selected by Shiho Yuba.

Comment
Jun-chan, who was chasing Mamepao, quickly passed him and turned around. The scene makes me want to cry. The breakfast of rice balls and frankfurters, the gummy grandmother, and the egg muffler are all irresistibly tender. In my old age, I want to give this picture book to all the children in my neighborhood, and make my name known as "Grandma Mame Pao".

"Rabbit's Eye" by Takato Ishizaki

Comment
The movement of the heart when we cherish relationships that we take for granted, such as friends, family, business associates, and lovers, without taking them for granted I believe that "A Modest Love" is a movement of the heart when one tries to cherish relationships that are taken for granted, such as friends, family, business associates, and lovers, without taking them for granted. Set in the Hanshin industrial area during the period of rapid economic growth, this book depicts the interactions between a new female teacher and the people she interacts with. It is sure to make you feel kind to those around you.

Rie Kimoto's Choice, "A New Kind of Old Man: Thoughts and Life in Toyama".

Comment
A collection of records of casual days captured from the funny and lovely perspective of the most charming man I know. A collection of records of casual days, captured from the funny and lovely point of view of the most charming man I know. I don't know anyone who fits the words "wit" and "humor" better than he does. This is a book that will help the reader to easily untangle some of the useless, but not useless, tangles that he has been writing about for the past 25 years.

Profile
Kumiko Tomioka. Born in Okayama, Japan. Her birthday is Cat's Day. Studied community development and community at university. After working as a bookstore keeper and a public bathhouse keeper, since April she has been living and working at a beautiful inn on the Seto Inland Sea, while continuing to do interviews and writing. Likes walking, radio, and chocolate mint ice cream.

Comment
Since I was exposed to tanka in junior high school class, various poems have been a part of my life. Probably because I read them over my life at that time. This book is the same, even though I'm not a teacher, even though I've never had a dog, even though I've never had a broken heart... somehow I can relate to it all. And it's selfishly saving me. I recommend keeping it by your bedside and opening it whenever you feel like it.

Yuka Akashi's Choice of "Three Beaten Daughters 1) and 2)"

Profile
Yuka Akashi Born in Kyoto, Japan in 1992. She is a freelance editor and writer, and will start living in Tokyo and Okayama in 2020, and open the bookstore "aru" in Seto Inland Sea in April 2021.

Comment
After the death of her mother, her father went on a trip and left her with three daughters. The three daughters are left behind after their mother dies and their father leaves on a trip. The love they show to their sisters and to their daily lives warms the hearts of the viewers.

A book for your reading pleasure in autumn.

The selected books on "love" warmed my heart when I read them, and made me feel a renewed love for the people and things I love around me.

If someone comes to your mind when you think about love, please tell them how you feel. And if HAA can be there for such a situation, we will be very happy.

Was there a book that caught your attention among the selections we introduced over the three sessions?
