Kurofune LLC Showcasing Roxie Wins Second Most Popular Imported Products Contest at The 91st Tokyo International Gift Show Spring 2021

Roxie was a crowd favorite at the recent 91st Tokyo International Gift Show Spring 2021 picking up second place in the Most Popular Imported Products Contest.

“Karaoke started in Japan and is a popular past time for everyone. Until Roxie came along, people who enjoyed karaoke had to go to KTV rooms, pubs and their homes to sing. With Roxie, we bring karaoke now into the car (which all of us spend lots of time). Families that travel together in their car can now experience singing together to build strong relationships. Roxie is wonderful for daily commute and also vacation driving” said Kozo Ikesue CEO of Kurofune.LLC. He added that with a power adapter, Roxie also works in homes and with a powerful vocal reduction engine, everyone can sing in the comfort of their car and home to all the latest and greatest Japanese hits.

“We are proud to be associated with Kurofune who has been relentless in promoting Roxie in Japan and all credit must go to them for achieving a great award”, says Jeffrey Wu, CEO of Carkit AI Inc., creator of Roxie.
