Tamura Nisshindō (田村日進堂) was a Japanese company about which little is known. It reportedly advertised the Lion camera using the no-need-darkroom process in 1931.[1]

In May and July 1946, advertisements were placed in Ars Camera by a shop called Nisshindō (日進堂), selling cameras and photographic products in Nihonbashi, Tokyo.[2] It is not known if this was related to the 1931 company or not.

Notes Edit

  1. Date and attribution of the Lion to Tamura Nisshindō: Awano, p.7 of Camera Collectors' News no.317, quoting the book Nihon Shashinshi Nenpyō (日本写真史年表).
  2. Advertisements in Ars Camera May 1946 (p.2) and July 1946 (p.2). The address was Tōkyō-to Nihonbashi-ku Kabuto-chō 2–36 (東京都日本橋区兜町2の36).
