JCII Camera Museum

Museum in Kōrakuen & Akihabara

Among the hundreds of vintage cameras on display here is an 1839 Giroux daguerreotype, the world's first camera. Japan wasn't far behind: the ornate Tsui-kin, Japan's first camera, came out in 1854; it's also part of the museum's collection.

Behind the museum, in a separate building, is the JCII Photo Salon, which hosts free photography exhibitions.
