Prince Kogyo Co., Ltd. (Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture), one of Japan's leading can opener manufacturers, has been producing [Z can openers] since its establishment in 1969. It has become a long-selling product that has been loved by its predecessor companies for over 60 years without changing the auspicious "gourd type" that was used at the time of its birth.

Retro cute Z can opener is useful in a wide range of situations from home to outdoor use. Despite its compact shape, it also has a bottle opener and performs two functions in one. Compared to the shelf life of pull-top cans, which is about one and a half years, the shelf life of cans that can be opened with a can opener is said to be about three years.  

For examinations, weddings, etc. The shape of the Z can opener imitates a “gourd,” which is a lucky charm, and is ideal as a gift to bring good luck, such as a “happiness opening” gift for a couple getting married.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
