about us

Asia  Pearl Japan Ltd has been in the business of cultured pearls since its founding in Kobe, Japan in 1956.  A family-owned enterprise, the company has continued to grow as an export-driven distributor of cultured pearls to various markets around the world. 

Beginning with the manufacturing of Japanese akoya pearls, the company then diversified into Chinese freshwater pearls and hemispherical mabes, before specializing in South Sea and Tahitian pearls.  We continue to manufacture and operate in Kobe, Japan, a historically important trading hub for cultured pearls.

Our South Sea and Tahitian selection includes a full range of qualities, shapes, and sizes, sourced from various pearl farms.  This allows us to distribute our products to all markets globally, from semi-wholesalers to manufacturers to retailers per their individual requirements. 

We offer loose pearls as well as necklaces made with an emphasis on quality, with skils cultivated over a 50 year corporate history. For a sample of our products, we welcome you to visit our booths at the various trade shows in Hong Kong, four times annually.
