Support for The team HKS Himitsukichi Salon

▼ 日本語訳は英語文の下にございます▼

We are HKS/Himitsukichi Salon located in New York Times Square.

This is a funding that enables to maintain The Salon and  the team members.

Currently in the State of New York, due to the Corona Virus, multiple businesses including the beauty industry received an order to stop operating. There's a shelter in place order and we're not even allowed to leave our homes. 

Himitsukichi Salon has stopped operating without any exceptions and we are deeply concerned about the uncertain future of this situation without being able to see the way out. 

We are a married couple that with determination made our dream come true to open a hair salon in Times Square in October 2018. At the beginning, we didn't have many customers and we distributed flyers, went around visiting nearby hotels and businesses, held free-hair-cut events in the parks to promote our salon and little by little our salons' recognition increased.

After a year and a half now, we gathered 7 people in our team and started to gain recognition by our customers and as one solid team we worked hard on making our customers smile.  When suddenly everything flipped upside down.

Himitsukichi Salon is a business established by Japanese, not by American, so there's no expectation of any guarantee from the U.S. government.

We cannot operate inside the salon nor leave our homes. Even in this practically unemployed situation, we still have to keep paying rent and living expenses. We wish to support our team and enable them to keep their living stable. 

We will be happy if we can all reunite and reopen our salon with smiles on our faces and provide happiness to all of you. That we believe is our mission, happiness and the meaning of living.

We truly appreciate all of your help from all our hearts.

これは、ニューヨーク、タイムズスクエアに拠点を置くHKS/Himitsukichi Salonとそのチームを存続するためのファウンドです。


Himitsukichi Salon も例外なく営業停止しておりますが、今後どれだけこの状況が続くのか、先が見えない状態に不安でいっぱいです。



HKS/Himitsukichi Salonはアメリカ人ではなく、日本人が作った会社なので、アメリカ国からの保証の見込みはありません。


そして、またみんなで笑顔でHKS/Himitsukichi Salonを再開し、私達の仕事が皆様の幸せに変わるものであればとても嬉しく思います。それが、チームの使命であり、幸せであり、生きる意味だと思います。
