Six kubos, each 14 feet by 17 feet, free-standing bamboo huts with thatched roofing, will soon feature an array of products.
According to store officials, Otsuka’s Furniture leaders have been planning this conversion for quite some time, but wanted to increase their reputation as employees at a tourist destination for furniture and accessories before beginning this new venture. Otsuka’s leaders will offer free shipping.
