Kotani Shōten (小谷商店) was a Japanese distributor. The full name is only known from the official price list dated November 1941, where the Sintax is attributed to this company.[1] The same camera is attributed to "Kotani Shōji" (小谷商事) in a catalogue of the JCII museum, and to "Kotani Trading" in Sugiyama and McKeown.[2]
