The Merit in Buying Glasses from JINS

One of the main benefits to buying glasses from JINS is its reasonable prices and designs. 

The frames were created by Japanese designers so you are sure to get the latest and most popular fashion.
Such as the round John Lennon style.

Like in other countries, that style is really popular in Japan. so JINS Shibuya Branch has a lot of eyewear in this style.

The Secret to it's Fast Manufacturing

All JINS eyeglasses come with thin aspheric lenses.
They are made to fit your eyes and eyesight perfectly, and you can add special effects to the lens if desired. 


    JINS SCREEN is the MOST popular glasses line at JINS. For an added 5000yen, you can get lenses that protects from the blue light that reflects from our computer and other electronic devises. 
    Best for people for severe dry eyes.
    We've never seen glasses like these before!There's a small cap for you to put water in to keep your eyes moisturized.

    When you buy the glasses you get a dropper for you to add water. All you have to do is open the small cap, drop water in, then close the cap! And your eyes will be feelin great the rest of the day!
    JINS' AIRFRAME glasses are crazy light! You'll probably forget you're even wearing glasses!They're made to fit the face perfectly. Being so light, the frames aren't stiff like other fashion glasses.

Make Quickly

  • When going to Japan or any other country for that matter, buying eyewear may not be the top of your list.
    But actually JINS gets a lot of foreign customers!

    So having multilingual staff is crucial for JINS.
  • Even more, since there are so many foreigners that comes to JINS to buy glasses, JINS changed the eyesight chart to a more user friendly one.

    Japan normally uses circles and you have to say which side of the circle is open (left, right, up, or down). 
    However only at JINS do they do they roman alphabet!!! It makes things SO much easier!! 
  • Normally you have to go through a long process and sometimes multiple places to get prescription glasses.
    But at JINS they do it all right there!
  • Once you get your eyes checked and pick the frames you want, you will be given a number.

    There's a monitor above to let you know when your number is called, how long the wait is, and how many people are waiting!
    By the way, the fastest time they've made the glasses so far is 30 mins!

    Then once it's time to come back to pick up your glasses, you go to the 2nd floor to pay and get them!


  • What if when it's time to check the glasses once they're finished you're wearing contacts?

    Don't fret! There's a sink set up for you!

    There is hand soap, contact solution, a contact case, and paper towels. So you can easily pop your contacts in and out to try out your glasses!
