Founder story

ASANO MOKKOUSHO was founded in 1950 in the Tsubame-Sanjo area of Niigata Prefecture (famous for its metalwork) by Teisuke Asano, the son of a farmer, after his marriage to Sakae Sasagawa, the daughter of a Tokyo manufacturer. This union of rural and metropolitan values would prove the linchpin of the new company.

All our products are based on Teisuke’s wish to make farmers’ lives easier with his tools, and Sakae’s love of nature and her desire to help others who shared this love.

The First Product : Hooks

Their first products were hooks and gaffs crafted using local metalworking techniques, and used for farming, goods distribution, and fishing. Although it was difficult make ends meet during those early days, Teisuke and Sakae thought of the people whose livelihoods depended on their tools, and dedicated themselves to rapidly producing them. Furthermore, in order to deliver products as quickly as possible, a delivery motorcycle was obtained.

This was an expensive purchase at the time. As they continued to produce tools, their attitude of hard work and quality manufacturing was understood and appreciated by the wholesalers around them, and eventually they were asked to make tools for farmers all over Japan.

Today, ASANO MOKKOSHO produces a wide variety of tools, everything from hoes and sickles for farmers to domestic gardening tools and outdoor utility knives. Although our range of products has increased dramatically, the hooks and gaffs produced at the time of our founding are still manufactured by our company with the same dedication to hard work and quality inherited from our founders.
