The Japan Camera and Optical Instruments Inspection and Testing Institute established this museum in 1989 to support the culture and preservation of both photography and imaging. The displays are divided into three areas: cameras, photographs and a library. JCII Photo Salon has a collection of impressive photographs and the JCII Library has shelves of books based on photography. Noteworthy examples in the collection include a Photosphere, an Escopette, a Sutton Panoramic, a pre-war Togo and a Soho Reflex Tropical. The only 1839 "Giroux Daguerreotype Camera" in a Japanese museum is here. Special exhibitions are held periodically categorized by country or type of camera.
