Founded on the corporate principle of “creating a culture promoting a high quality of life for people as our contribution to society”, YAMAMOTO KOGAKU has been developing protective eyewear products since starting business in 1911.
Through our ceaseless research of new technologies based on our proprietary light-controlling techniques, YAMAMOTO KOGAKU has turned out two brands, YAMAMOTO and SWANS, which protect working people’s safety and offer the best sports gear for athletes, respectively. The diverse range of glasses and lenses that we have offered to the world has supported people’s lives for more than a century.
Learn about the whole range of techniques for lens and frame design, from R&D to styling―all of which that make up YAMAMOTO KOGAKU’s safety and comfort.
Our products under the SWANS brand are designed for the Japanese physique and for that reason are made in Japan. As the athlete’s partner we offer sunglasses, snow goggles, swimming goggles, dirt goggles, and other eyewear for any sports purpose to ensure their safety and well-being.
Based on the product concept of “towards safety and health of working people and a better environment”, products under the YAMAMOTO brand feature a variety of options, including industrial safety goggles, laser-shielding goggles, and protective wear for breathing, that support not only the well-being of the working people’s bodies, but also a safer and more comfortable living environment for diversified lifestyles.
We introduce YAMAMOTO KOGAKU’s history with over a century of continuous product development since its foundation in 1911.
