History of Our Company

The history of our company has a close relation with the history of making the brush in Kumano Town. Mr. Yasubei Shiromoto became a brush craftsman in 1868 (Meiji 2) and started the brush making in Kumano Town. Mr. Joichi Shiromoto, (Shodai=First) received the license from Hiroshima Prefecture as "Fude Yui (making and selling brushes)" first in Kumano Town in January 1881 (Meiji 14), and we, as a company, started brush manufacturing and selling, officially. Therefore, January 1881 is the official foundation year of our company. We built a small Temple dedicated to the Kannon, who protects people in the town, in the company in appreciation of the ancestor and/or senior brush craftsman's achievement in 1869 (Meiji 3). (Although Houto, stone lantern, remained with that time, the temple was rebuilt in 1964 (Showa 39). We promise and respect tomorrow's prosperity of the town and the company.
