neat-looking reel.
Olympic/Seiko usually gets the "blame" for most Japanese reels.
I don't know how easy it would be to research it - Japanese doesn't google well.
I have two contacts in Japan, maybe one of them might have an idea.
I'll e-mail both with this link.

My friend from Japan replied.
The name is Kuroshio, and it's named for the Kuroshio Current.
A surfcasting/ light salt reel made in the 60s.

Len, the photos are gone now, but I'd guess levers are free spool and anti-reverse.
