To The All,
Due to the one of the causes of this Catastrophe by Earthquake and Tsunami we are experiencing in Japan now, we first of all would like you to understand there is some possibility of Shipping items maybe a little delay, though I do not have any information about this now.
Then again as duplicated notification (http://hotoke-antiques.com/topics/2011/03/earthquake-tsunamis.html), please understand We & our Stock are mercifully in the safe place, and will regularly continue to work as usual.
However, on the other hand, the tens of thousands of victims in the damaged area can not get anything of life conservation including water, food, medicine, electricity, gas, etc. in this cold weather as the matter of present fact. Therefore, although this critical state will be getting a little more improved than now when the main land route to the damaged area is revived, they will still need MORE HELP definitely and We would appreciate you to give them donation from the some reliable charity organization in your country and pray for them.
Thank you very much for your kind mails.
To the others, I'm just fine and my all family is fine with no problem as well.
This is quite a terrible disaster...
I mourn for the loss of many lives.
