Japanese Company Launches Condoms With Traditional Art Designs for 2020 Tokyo Olympics


In anticipation for the 2020 Olympics, condom makers in Japan are preparing something special for foreign visitors.

Tokyo’s iconic condom store Condomania and local condom manufacturer Okamoto has developed a new line of condoms featuring traditional Japanese ukiyo-e artwork.

Ukiyo-e art, which flourished from the 17th through 19th centuries, is considered to be quite popular with overseas tourists.

Dubbed the “Design Range,” the new condom collection is set to be available this summer, Soranews24 reports.

The Design Range will be customizable, so customers can place any original design they prefer on these condoms, not just traditional artwork.

In addition to the artistic contraceptive, Okamoto will also be launching the first condoms with antiviral coating called the VivaGel condom.  Included in Okamoto’s Zero Zero Three (003) brand, VivaGel is the world’s only condom that incorporates the SPL7013 microbicide, a substance that has been scientifically proven to eliminate up to 99.9 percent of HIV, HSV, and HPV.

While it has been revealed that VivaGel will be sold in packs of ten for 2,000 yen ($18.53), prices for the Design Range are yet to be announced.
