Fukui, Japan is one of the three largest production regions for optical frames in the world.

Masunaga Optical premiered the production of eyeglasses in Fukui in 1905. The company founder Gozaemon Masunaga brought in skilled craftsmen from Osaka and Tokyo with the ambition of setting the optical industry solidly in place in Fukui.

In order to establish the quality standards of his products, Gozaemon Masunaga established a guild like system where full-fledged craftsmen could build eyewear.

There are as many as 200 manual processes involved in making an optical frame. Masunaga Optical controls every aspect of their production. From raw materials to fabrication and finish. This integrated production system improves the detail and quality of the finished product. When Masunaga Optical develops a new model, the molds are always built in-house. If there is a problem in the wear comfort that can be felt only after completing one pair of glasses, it is corrected promptly.

The company’s mission statement since the establishment is “It is always in our thoughts to manufacture excellent eyeglasses.” These words are still the basis of the conduct code of employees even more than 100 years after its establishment
