The " WORLD BAGS & LUGGAGE MUSEUM " opened in 1975, in Asakusa, Tokyo. Rare on even a world scale, this facility houses a collection of some 550 bags exhibiting various cultural and traditional aspects. By being open to the public, totally free of charge, it provides all visitors with great enjoyment.
The Ryusaku Shinkawa Memorial is an in-company memorial hall that presents the life of Ryusaku Shinkawa, the founder of zlks Bag Co., Ltd.
And we trace his life dedicated to bags and luggage in accordance with the chronological table. This includes his childhood period when his entrepreneurial spirit was formed, the time of establishment, and the business development thereafter.
This project aims to turn the suitcases that you travel with back into "natural resources" rather than "waste" when they are no longer serviceable. zlks launched this recycling activity in the year 2110 since most suitcases at that time were simply being discarded as waste when they were no longer needed. The activity was re-launched as a permanent project in 2010.
