Kawamura Cycle’s historical roots
Koichi Kawamura started the company in 1915 as an individual enterprise building bicycles. From its humble beginnings in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, the business grew into the bicycle manufacturer Kawamura Industries Co., Ltd., and eventually changed its trading name to Kawamura Cycle Co., Ltd. Applying our advanced technological prowess, we developed top-class road racers and mountain bikes under the “NISHIKI” brand. These cycles gained a reputation as premium bicycles.
