Our Story

An initiating trip to the land of the rising sun 🇯🇵

The Eye of Tokyo is originally the reflection of a group of student entrepreneurs traveling to the land of the rising sun; "Is it still possible to find inexpensive quality glasses?" And the answer is yes, in Japan.

Indeed, when most manufacturers choose between a "quality" or "inexpensive" label, Japanese companies like our partner Tenyou do not decide. It is under the effect of local competition and corporate values that they respect both their products and their customers.

The Tenyou House ✍🏼

Above; Augustin (Co-founder of L'Œil de Tokyo) analyzes the first samples with Chi-san, the founder of Maison Tenyou.

Japanese company founded in 2003 and based two hours south of Tokyo, by the sea in Kamakura. Its founder, Chi-san, has surrounded herself for 16 years with a team mainly made up of Japanese women to develop her creations in a unique retro Japanese style. As much in its designs as its commitments, Tenyou is always one step ahead in a still very conservative Japanese company. 

We are looking above all 💡

  • IRREPROACHABLE QUALITY by a choice of UV400 protective lenses (maximum UV protection) and robust materials for the assembly of the frames (polycarbonate and metal).   
  • A UNIQUE DESIGN, the result of 16 years of research and innovation with the aim of always associating vintage inspiration with a modern and sometimes futuristic design (see Omotesando collection). 
  • FAIR PRICES that make our products both accessible and competitive with a build quality that sets them apart in their category.
