I was excited to learn about a company in Japan that builds deluxe foot spas. They also draw their inspiration for thier country’s hot-springs fed foot baths, calling their product “Ashiyu de Jet”. I wanted to contact them just to compare notes, putting aside any fear that they would want to compete with us or capitalize on our work somehow.
Imagine my suprise when they ordered a spa from us. We offered to send them a deluxe diamond model and were very relieved when it was set up and running in their facility. Now we are preparing a shipment of five long model spas. I’m frankly still not certain why they are excited about carrying our spas. Their spas appear to be very nice, though maybe geared to larger installations. One consideration might be the price, which is about a tenth of what their standard model retails for, if my math is correct. In any case, we are thrilled to be doing something to help the trade deficit and to be making new friends in a faraway land.
