Tōa Kinzoku (東亜金属) was a Japanese company based in Shitaya (Tokyo) in 1943. At the time, it was the maker of the Midget subminiature camera distributed by Misuzu Shōkai. This camera was initially made by Jilona Shōkai from 1937, and the nature of the relationship between these two companies is unknown.
