Showcasing the history of the development of Japanese cameras, from the first-ever mass-produced model to current day digital versions, visit the JCII Camera Museum for a fascinating glimpse into Japan's photographic culture.
Roughly 300 cameras are displayed as part of the museum's permanent exhibition while rotating and thematic exhibitions, usually focusing on international cameras and development, are held every three months. Of particular note is the Giroux Daguerreotype camera, the world's first camera distributed in the market and the only such camera exhibited in Japan.
General admission: 300 yen
