Kame Mannen is one of the oldest eyeglass brand in Japan, begins with the plating factory "Kimura Seisakusho", which was founded in Fukui City in 1917. The brand name Kame Mannen is named after the saying "Crane lives for a thousand years and a turtle lives for a million years" from the desire of the founder Kikujiro Kimura to make glasses that are durable and can be used habitually for a long time.
The surface treatment selected for making of each pair of Kame Mannen glasses are precious metal plating and highly durable ion plating. Ion plating is a delicate surface treatment with excellent adhesion because it takes time and effort, and it is one of the technologies necessary to achieve the quality that the brand pursues.
