Greetings from the Association of Alkaline Ionized Water Apparatus

Thank you for visiting the web site of the Association of Alkaline Ionized Water Apparatus.
Our association's primary purpose is to provide sound knowledge regarding alkaline ionized water apparatus and to continually improve product quality in order to help our customers’ happy and comfortable lives. The association was established in 1992 with the participation and assembly of businesses related to alkaline ionized water apparatus who considered the integrated collaboration of all companies concerned with manufacturing and sales important.
Today, with the increasing awareness and desire of citizens for better drinking water, alkaline ionized water apparatus can greatly contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the health of citizens, and it is expected that demand will continue to greatly increase in the future.
In addition, the function of alkaline ionized water has been verified through up-to-date scientific evaluations including placebo-controlled double blind clinical study. Consequently the water is gaining attention not only nationwide but worldwide.
Our association, while collaborating with the Functional Water Foundation and the Japanese Society of Functional Water,focuses our activities on collecting scientific evidences regarding appropriate methods of use, on providing appropriate information to both Japan and other countries worldwide. Furthermore, the association is involved in a variety of efforts to continually maintain and improve the reliability of alkaline ionized water apparatus.
On this web site, we will provide appropriate knowledge and the latest information regarding alkaline ionized water apparatus and introduce some of the activities of our association members with the desire to further increase the interest and patronage of everyone.
