Watanabe Metals is a small steel bucket manufacturing company with only 10 staffs. It was established in 1923 in the town under the Himeji Castle, Hyogo Japan.
Since its establishment, the company has aspired to make products that will last a lifetime, and its skills and beliefs have been faithfully passed down from skilled craftsmen to younger ones.
In the mid-Showa period, many inexpensive foreign products were imported in Japan, and the company was on the point of closing its business. At that time, the third president and his wife decided to create a stylish bucket that could be placed in a room and redesigned the product. They named the brand "OBAKETSU"
Even now, from the basic materials used in products to small parts such as wire, they use only the best materials carefully selected and made in Japan.
They do all manufacturing and inspection at their small factory to provide their products with full responsibility.
