Japan Charity and Guinness World Record for Longest Line Of Spectacles 

Masunaga Optical has partnered up with Megane Guinness in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of spectacles in history and in the process help rebuild the areas of Japan most affected by the recent disasters.

The organization would like to promote the city of Sabae to the world. 90% of Japanese domestically produced eyewear is manufactured in Sabae city, Fukui, but many people are not aware of it. Megane Guinness decided to challenge the Guinness World Record to promote that Sabae=Megane(Spectacles) and Megane=Sabae.

On May 5th, 2011, tens of thousands of donated optical frames from around the world will be connected in Sabae city in a single line with a target of 6,600 feet (1.25 miles). The current Guinness World Record is 5,775 feet. To reach the goal, the organization will need to collect 20,000 frames.

All donated frames will be distributed to people in need. Masunaga Optical is hoping its frame donation will help set the new world record as well as provide a new start for many families.
