Ōki Kōgaku Seiki Seisaku-sho (大木光学精機製作所, i.e. "Ōki precision machinery factory") was a Japanese company based in Tokyo, Arakawa. It was the producer of two cameras during the Second World War, the Oko Six and Oko Semi. It probably made the four-element Oko or Okor lenses mounted on these cameras. It also made Hildar and Oscar lenses for the Semi Rosen U and Primo distributed by Ōsawa Shōkai.
