JCII Camera Museum


The Japan Camera and Optical Instruments Inspection and Testing Institute (JCII) Camera Museum was opened to the public in 1989 and systematically presents the history of the development of Japanese cameras. The Giroux Daguerreotype camera, the worlds first camera distributed in the market, is the only such camera exhibited in Japan. A variety of famous cameras illustrate the history of development from the first camera mass-produced in Japan to present-day digital cameras. Special exhibitions are held every four months, focusing on the functions of cameras, or the products of specific countries, to show every aspect of cameras for their enthusiasts.
