Helping People Live
Clean and Prosperous Lives.

  • We help people live clean and prosperous lives through product development.
  • We maintain high quality and create products that satisfy and resonate with customers.
  • We aim for the happiness of our employees, the satisfaction of our customers, and the prosperity of our business partners.
TAKASAGO was founded in May 1916 as a manufacturer of garden brooms and “Tawashi” (scrubbing brushes). Since then, we have been engaged in unique planning and development for a number of daily cleaning tools including floor brushes, mops, and “Zashiki (Japanese style room) brooms”, and have grown steadily.

We have accumulated a great deal of know-how in accurately identifying user needs in daily life, together with the capabilities to reflect those needs in our planning and development. We are very proud of our know-how and high technological capabilities.

With “Helping People Live Clean and Prosperous lives” as our management philosophy, our planning capabilities, and our reliable technologies cultivated over many years of history, we can support people’s daily lives in harmony with society and the natural environment.

We will further improve our planning and development and technical capabilities to meet changing needs of the times and will make additional efforts to develop as an effective company that offers customer engagement and satisfaction.

Origin of TAKASAGO brand

Our company name and trademark “TAKASAGO” were designed based on the tradition of TAKASAGO in 1912.

The name TAKASAGO originates from the song "Takasago" by Zeami, which is based on the “Legend of Takasago Jouuba.” The story of Takasago is about the prosperity of the country and its people, and it has been regarded as a symbol of longevity and marital harmony since ancient times as it contains blessings for world peace.

At that time, brooms were strongly recognized in Japan as an indispensable part of the home. Therefore, we decided on the name and trademark "TAKASAGO" as being most appropriate for brooms. "Contribute to national prosperity, love for humanity, health and longevity through the manufacture and sale of cleaning products." This is the pure thinking behind "TAKASAGO."
