●JUN OSON Comment
“Drawing those Drifters! What an honor.
I grew up in the Hyokin tribe, so it’s not real time,
All of the Drifters were able to see their successes after that. All the members have strong individuality, even for those who haven’t experienced it in real time.
I naturally learned various gags.
It’s a program that embodies the sparkling aspects of the Showa era. ” -SHISHUMANIA × THE DRIFTERS-

Kerorin tub and towel set 4,950 yen (tax included)
Around the time of the Tokyo Olympics in the Showa era, bathtubs in public baths were switched from wood to synthetic resin due to hygiene issues, which led to the introduction of Kerorin Oke, which began advertising using bathtubs.
