COCORO. The mind. Will.
Emotion. The wellspring of all knowledge.
COCORO represents all of these.
The ideals of COCORO can be found within each unique creation. Japanese
craftsmanship is highly regarded around the world; this is because it’s not just about simply making
things, but rather creating objects of value. Our creations incorporate the experience, ideas,
creativity, innovative skills, and aesthetic sensibilities of our craftspeople today, and we strive
to pass on our traditional techniques to future generations.
We pursue this fundamental principle: Infuse into each of our creations the spirit of Japanese
craftsmanship as well as the will, the heart of each craftsperson who remains today. This is COCORO
At COCORO, our history and specialty lies in eyeglasses production. But we also look outside our own
community to work with traditional craftspeople of other disciplines, in Kyoto and all over Japan.
We’ve sought to collaborate with experts in dyeing, metalwork, woodwork, traditional handmade paper,
lacquer, and more. By combining all of this knowledge and expertise with the most advanced modern
technology, we are forging a new path forward for our profession. We pursue that spirit, that
beauty, and that emotion which lie at the heart of our ideals. COCORO. The new form of Japanese
