~History of KADOYA~

By knowing the things you use and wear, and the backbone of them

There are things that change the way you see and attach yourself.

So, not only do you want everyone to see Kadoya's things,

I thought it would be great if you could learn more about Kadoya's history, so I made a photolog.

Leather jackets have a history of over 100 years, but in fact they are used for motorcycles.

It seems that it was first made in the United States in the 1930s.

I was surprised to hear that Kadoya was founded at the same time.

  • In 1935, four years before the start of World War II, the first president, Shojiro Fukano,
    Founded as "Kadoya Leather Clothing Store" in Asakusa, Tokyo
  • In 1975, Masataka Fukano (current chairman) became the second president.
    Entering the Motorcycle World and Expanding Business
  • Established Kadoya Co., Ltd. in 1985. Constructed own building at current address
  • In the same year, the directly managed SHOP Sendai store opened.
  • In 2000, the Sendai store was relocated to its current address and renewed.
  • In 2003, two directly managed shops opened in Osaka and Fukuoka at the same time.
  • In 2005, the directly managed SHOP Nagoya store opened.
  • In 2006, we started a new business, Ref Leather, which specializes in cleaning leather.
  • In 2012, Masakazu Fukano (current president) became president
  • In 2019, sales of new brand ALTER KEIS started
  • In 2020, we will celebrate the 85th anniversary of our founding.
