The history of glass bead making in Japan is very short. Toho Beads started in the Hiroshima Fukuyama area in the beginning of the Showa era (1930s) as a “Mom-and-Pop” business.
The company was established on Nov.3rd ,1951. Since then, they’ve strived to improve their techniques while designing and creating new equipment and facilities. Toho Beads can say today that when it comes to quality, they are the number one glass beads maker in the world and have gained respect of not only the people in this country but around the world. This is all thanks to the cooperation and understanding of their clients around the world and they wish to extend our deepest gratitude.
