HomeAbout KAGAMI CRYSTAL
Kagami Crystal Co., Ltd. established by Kozo Kagami, opened Japan’s first crystal glass factory in 1934. Since its foundation over eighty years ago, the Company has developed advanced glass-making skills and techniques, including hand glassblowing, manual cutting and engraving, to fashion its range of original and high-quality glass products.
The products are widely used on official occasions, such as receptions for state guests and foreign dignitaries at the State Guesthouse, as well as Japanese embassies and consulates around the world. The Company has repeatedly received special commissions from the Imperial family. It is regarded as Japan’s leading supplier of superior glassware.
Said Kozo Kagami: "We should pursue creation of true value refraining from short-sighted, ephemeral creativity" and endorsed the idea of “monozukuri-no-kokoro” or passion for manufacturing excellence. Based on this principle the Company intends to continue its relentless efforts to enhance technologies, skills and commitment in offering products of high standards of technique and creativity, bringing hope and brilliance to your life through long lasting, high-quality glassware.
Glassware used at every Japanese embassy and general consulate in the world.

The first Edo Kiriko, or Japanese traditional cut glass, originating to the Edo period, is believed to have been made by Kyubei Kagaya, a master glass craftsman in Odenma-cho, Edo or old Tokyo in the late Edo period. (The Edo period is a period of Japanese history, running from 1603 to 1868.) Edo Kiriko was created and nurtured by the townsmen of Edo. Since then, for over 180 years, its excellent designs and finest techniques have been handed down to generations of Kiriko craftsmen.
Edo Kiriko is highly reputed for the most exquisite and delicate cutting, and designated by the Japanese government as the traditional craftwork. It is very popular both in Japan and abroad as a gift symbolizing Japanese culture.
