MASUNAGA Optical was founded in 1905 by Gozaemon Masunaga and was the driving force behind the development of the optical industry in Fukui, Japan. In 1933, MASUNAGA Optical presented three solid gold frames to the Emperor. And in 1970, one of our frame was placed in the time capsule at the Osaka Expo. The birth of the MASUNAGA collection pays tribute to the classic and timeless design. Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in the countless steps of the manufacturing process. Masunaga does not rush the process.  No shortcuts are taken, no compromise are made in the creation of each MASUNAGA frame.
