How Tulip Japan Was Created

Tulip Japan was founded in 1948. It was previously known as Harada Seishinsho Incorporated up until 1970 when the company changed its name to Tulip Company Limited.

The tradition of needle-making in Hiroshima stretches back for more than 300 years.

The History of Hiroshima Needle production stretches back over 300 years, to when the ruling Asano Clan of Hiroshima Domain spread the practice as piecework for low-ranking samurai to support themselves. Since then, there have been numerous improvements in terms of both product quality and production efficiency and Hiroshima Needle has become widely known as a distinctive local industry.

Here’s a short video of the Hiroshima Tulip Needle factory in action. Included in the footage is the surrounding nature; mountains, woods and rivers.

The Tulip brand is based in the Hiroshima region and produces sewing needles, crochet hooks, and knitting needles for handicrafts.

Atsushi Harada, the founder, hoped to create a famous brand that would be a favorite among crafters. They manufacture high-quality products that are reliable and easy to use.

Tulip is committed to providing service and conducting business with integrity by delivering premium quality products.  

They plan for and anticipate the future, and continue to build their expertise in technology while preserving their traditional techniques. 

True to the Japanese work ethic, here is Tulip’s Mission Statement and Company values.

  •  We will contribute to the public with sincerity and our conviction to service.
  •  We will commit ourselves to customer satisfaction.
  •  We will dedicate ourselves to continuously developing innovative technology and maintaining high standards.
  •  We will always look toward the future and make self-growth and a life full of the heart come true.

Hiroshima is a fascinating place to visit. There are many historical sites, museums, castles, gardens, cafes and restaurants.
