This is Tsutsumi from Oikawa Furniture dot com.
Actually, last week I was down with a cold every day except Monday, so it's my first day back at work in a week.
This year, the mandarins are delicious (apparently it's a good year in Japan) and I've been eating more than two a day. I didn't eat that many last year, so I thought, "I won't catch a cold this year because I'm eating a lot of mandarins," but I caught one easily...
Please take care of your health, everyone.
By the way, Japanese houses, known for their high ventilation, can be quite cold in the winter. A unique heating appliance that has evolved in Japan to address this cold is the kotatsu.
In Japan, the combination of a kotatsu and mandarins is a classic winter style. The kotatsu we offer can be found here:
We handle an even wider range of kotatsu on our Japanese site: https://www.coordinatekagu.jp/c/living/kotatu
We also offer international shipping on our Japanese site.
The first newsletter of the month is about new products, but this time there's only one. So, I would like to share some other recent news with you.

1. New Products for November
A stylish wall-mounted TV board with block-style panels!
Until now, we have not dealt with high-type TV stands at our company. The reason is "because they're unfashionable." Moreover, the size of the TV to be placed is limited to a certain size, so personally, I wasn't very interested in handling high-type TV stands. However, the high-type TV stand I'm introducing this time is fashionable.
Moreover, it's an elegant wall-mounted TV stand that will completely revamp your interior, focusing on texture. If you're interested, I'd be grateful if you could check the details from the link.

The first exhibition in 2024 will be in March, a peak period for furniture demand. Moreover, it will be held in two cities, Tokyo and Osaka. The schedule and location for Osaka have been confirmed:

It will be either March 23-24 or 25. The location will be either Roppongi or Ikebukuro.
We hope that many customers will visit us in March, which is a busy period for furniture.
