Our business was established in 1916. The first president of Jakuetsu, Tatsuo Tokumoto designed and manufactured unique educational tools and materials when he opened Samidori Kindargarten in Tsuruga City, Fukui. His dream was for all children to grow up in a better environment. He used to say, “Make the products with care. Those who use them are the children who forge the future.” Educational materials and tools made with care gradually became popular in other preschools. Many of them wanted Mr. Tokumoto’s products at their preschools as well. That is how the company started. Jakuetsu business started with his dream, first from creating colored paper.
