Two kumiko (lattice woodwork) products developed by an EXIlE member, Keiji Kuroki, are available online. Kuroki was appointed as an ambassador of Okawa furniture in the fall of 2021 and has since worked with a local artisan in creating the table coaster and a glass plate. Those items can be purchased from ‘Furusato nozei’ (hometown taxation) websites for ¥35,000 ~ ¥50,000. Source: PR Times / Okawa Kagu Furusato Nozei
