Japanese caps - Advice needed.

I’m working on a Guild Spice Chest radio and the chassis has been worked on by a previous owner. All but a few of the paper caps were replaced with these “Made in Japan” caps”

I figure these are probably 1970s vintage? My questions is whether or not these were of high enough quality that I can leave them in place and not worry about it. The radios plays well as is. I’ll be replacing the remaining paper and filter caps.

Since your replacing the rest of the paper and filter caps anyway, why not replace them all to avoid problems later on?

That's my usual M.O. but since these were made in Japan I thought they might be more reliable. I thought someone here might be familiar with this specific brand.
