Lots of calls and e-mails lately from people trying to get the facts on Enagic and Sanastec. Sanastec claims to be offering the Enagic units and is blatantly using “Kangen Water” which Enagic claims to have exclusive trademark right to use. Enagic reps have told many of the people I’ve spoken with that the Sanastec units are not the same in quality and are manufactured by a different company. Another source on the internet claims that Hironari Oshira, owner of Enagic USA is also the owner of Sanastec. So what’s the real deal?
I did some research myself. I’m not jumping to any personal conclusions that I’d care to share publicly but I *am* willing to share the information that I’ve found.
Below are links I found in my research. They “connect dots” between Enagic, Sanastec, Torrance, CA, Osaka Japan and Hironari Oshiro. This post is for information purposes only – I’m just sharing research I did on behalf of confused consumers who called or sent e-mail inquiries. There have been enough over the past few months I thought I’d just post my findings here. I am not stating conclusions about either company or how they may or may not be connected, only providing information that anyone could find and verify on the internet.

Here is a Sanastec website: https://www.thinkalkaline.com/ionizers.php
Hironari Oshiro, owner of Enagic is listed as an owner of Sanastec USA Corp – you have to scroll a little more than halfway down the page – Enagic USA is listed as an associated business: http://www.veromi.com/BusinessDetailPg000011890.aspx
Here is where Enagic is listed as one of Sanastec’s customers:
This link shows a bill of lading for a shipment leaving Sanastec, Inc being delivered to Enagic USA:
If you go to this page on Enagic’s website, you will see that Enagic’s FACTORY and SUPPLIER addresses are the same as the address from which “Sanastec” is shipping to the Enagic USA offices. You will also see that the address for Enagic USA in Torrance CA is the same address that is shown for Sanastec USA Corp in the 2nd link shown below here:
On this page you will find “Sanastec USA Corp” listed at the same address:

Agreement signed by Hironari Oshira & Sanastec – YES, it IS in Japanese – but print it and take it to a local Japanese restaurant and ask someone to translate….
