Tōhōkōken was perhaps a Japanese company in the first half of the 1950s. The engraving Tōhōkōken camera is found on the top housing of the Camel, a 35mm viewfinder camera. Sugiyama and McKeown attribute the Camel and the Kikuca 35 (a rangefinder derivative) to "Tohokoken Camera Co." or "Tohokoken Camera Works".[1]

"Kōken" is probably written 光研, an abbreviation of kōgaku kenkyū meaning "optical research".
