The Tenugui Lecture by Mr. Kazuhiro Kato

My parents live near Kamawanu tenugui shop in Daikan-yama, Tokyo, just five minutes from their home.
I have always enjoyed spending time in their shop to check all tenugui and tenugui goods there.
It is my dream store, hopefully, someday I will open a store just like Kamawanu-san in New York!!!

Gotta hustle~~~

Thank you very much for sharing this great information with us, Kate-san!!!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.34 – We are on the HGTV CANADA!

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

Amazing… Amazing… Amazing…. well, this is not the song for NBA Basketball. By the way, LeBron James was totally amazing last night! Very last second (not a minute), he made a shot and won the games. I am a big fan of his and Cleveland Cavaliers. Oh, I can’t wait to see their next game tomorrow!

Oh, sorry….. what I would like to tell you tonight what is amazing?
Yes, We are on the HGTV Canada website now! And of course, I am a big fan of HGTV, too!

I’m sure, any company does online business, always keeps tracking their visitors to their sites. How many people visit the site… from where… how long they have stayed… how was conversion rate… etc etc. Smiling, crying and mumbling… And of course I do same things every single night. We had BIG numbers of access to our website today, and what I found out? Many visitors came from the HGTV Canada! The article about Tenugui and us are on their blog now. Amazing… Amazing… Amazing…
Here is the link to the blog about Tenugui and us, please check it out!
