Miyama Shōkai (みやま商会, meaning Miyama Trading Company) was a Japanese company in the late 1940s and early 1950s, about which almost nothing is known. Its name certainly implies that it was only a distributor. It is said that it sold the Yahō accessory rangefinder from 1949 for the Semi Pearl.[1]

Notes Edit

  1. Sold the Yahō: Noma, p.65.
