Okamoto USA: Brand History & Products

Since February of 1934, Okamoto Rubber Industries, Inc. has been at the top of the condom manufacturing business in Tokyo, Japan.

Formerly known as The Japan Rubber Industry, the company was founded in January of 1934 as a means to make and sell rubberized clothing and raincoats. And yes, this is one of the origins of the slang term (raincoats=condoms).

In just one month’s time, condoms were added to their product line and have contributed to the steady growth of Okamoto Industries ever since. To this day, they are still manufacturing the #1 top-selling condoms in Japan and have an ever expanding international market for their extremely high quality condoms.

Okamoto USA, Inc is located in Sandusky, Ohio and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Okamoto Industries, Inc. Okamoto Industries makes Crown and Okamoto brand condoms in Japan at their Ibaraki Plant, while Okamoto USA makes and markets their line of Beyond Seven brand condoms.

Condoms made at all Okamoto factories are FDA-approved and are manufactured using state-of-the-art materials, equipment and testing procedures. Okamoto is well known for producing the absolute thinnest, strongest, most reliable and smoothest condoms, for a more natural feeling for both partners. All condoms currently made by Okamoto Industries and Okamoto USA are lubricated, have a reservoir tip and are non-contoured (meaning they have a straight fit).

After endless hours of research, Okamoto has developed a super thin and strong material called sheerlon, which is a silkier than traditional latex and it doesn’t have any potent latex odors or tastes. Okamoto strives to stay ahead of the game by continuing to come up with new and innovative latex manufacturing technologies and super comfortable safer sex products.

Despite it’s unbelievable thinness, this condom is built tough and can last through acrobatic erotic escapades, all while providing superior heat transfer between partners.
