Background

Tojiro Co., Ltd. was founded as Fujitora Farm Equipment in 1953 in Tsubame, Niigata, Japan. The company was renamed to Fujitora Industry Co., Ltd. in 1964, and to Tojiro Co., Ltd. in 2015.

Many local cities in Japan have been flourished by developing their unique culture and technology. The background of this development is the long lasted feudal society ruled by monarchs during Edo-period (1603-1868), under which every feudal lord had to come and live in Edo (Tokyo) for one year in turn to show his loyalty to the Shogun. The feudal lords brought and offered their local quality products and traditional culture when they visited the Shogun to obtain his admiration and eventually his support to their local territory. In order to do so, it was quite important for the feudal lords to encourage their local people to enhance the quality of their goods and culture.

Tsubame-Sanjo in Niigata Prefecture, where the Tojiro factory is located, was one of such provincials. Tsubame-Sanjo used to be the Japanese sword producing district and their predecessors had studied and improved their technique over several generations. It has been then passed down to the present and transformed as cutlery manufacturing technique.
