Shimura (志村) is a Japanese company, which made the Mascot subminiature camera around 1950. The full name is unclear: the most reliable source says Shimura Kōgaku (志村光学) but others give "Shimura Koki" or "Shimura Seiki Co." instead. It is said that the Mascot was developed on behalf of Tōkyō Kōgaku, of which Shimura was perhaps an offshoot or a subcontractor.
