The Taishō-shiki (大正式) is a Japanese folding camera, sold by Ōsaka Shashinki Shōkai on mail order. Taishō is the name of the Japanese era starting in 1911 and ending in 1925, and the name means "Taishō-type" or "Taishō set".

The camera is only known from a single advertisement.[1] The drawing is hardly legible, and does not show any detail. The picture format is not mentioned, but it was certainly quite small, most probably No.0-size (4×5cm). Four versions are listed, priced at ¥1.50, ¥2, ¥3 and ¥5. The camera was supplied with a set of chemicals and a user manual.[2]
