Cancel of our Asia Week exhibition

12/03/2020 | news
Dear Customers
We regret to inform that we have to cancel our open-house exhibition during Asia Week New York due to increasing potential risk of travelling from/to Japan.
It was our third time since we joined AWNY and JADA and we have been very much looking forward to this event in the town I love and lived for 6 years.
Therefore, it is painful decision to make and we have been considering until last minute before leaving home.
I am really sorry to have missed this opportunity to meet our clients. We all hope that days we can travel freely would come soon.
Meanwhile, our selection of prints for AWNY, as well as other prints will be available both online and catalogue as soon as possible. We will let you know then.
Lastly, We thank members and staffs of AWNY and JADA, and friend dealers, who organized this event and helped us to participate.
We look forward to seeing you next year.
Toshiyuki Hara
