Let me publish here the exchange of correspondence I had with a previous customer.
The mail came like a bolt from the blue:
> how is it possible that you sell such expensive high quality baths and
> live in a high tech environment…but your website is so unpractical and
> it stops me from really searching, thats not good pr!
> fan of wooden baths
> owner of one.
Thank you for your honest comment.
I think you are 100% right.
Actually I am in the process of renovating the HP but it is taking more
time than anticipated.
Please bear with us one more month!

Sorry for the direct comment, I am Dutch and people from Holland are known for their directness. The difference with southern countries is already big, so you can imagine how it is in Japan
I will visit Japan within 1-2 years, I am interested in japanese woodworkingskills.
Is your business to be visited? Would be nice.
I will be mainly in Nasu (Tochigi) but who knows…
When my current bath will be rotten I defenitely want another ofuro, because it ads a lot of well beinig to my life, using such a bath.
Well I must apologize with all of you as well for the old and non-smartphone optimized HP but, as I said above, YES! the site is under renovation.
It will come also with enhanced web-shop functions and I plan to offer you a heftier slice of Japan, including “karakami” ricepaper, “urushi” lacquer and more!

Meanwhile please feel free to send me your bolts… Any comment is appreciated especially if it is helping me improving the service.
All the Best//
