TOKYO | Fujifilm Square Roppongi is a photographer’s dream, and features a museum of photography which showcases the over 170 year history of photography through historically important cameras from several brands. There are over 100 vintage cameras on display here, including Japan’s oldest camera obscura from the late 18th century, and a Leica A, the world’s first 35mm film camera, from 1925.
Moving to Fujifilm specifically, there are over 300 items of film and cameras showing the history of the Fujifilm brand from its founding (as Fuji Photo Film Co.) in 1934 until today. For those interested in Fujifilm’s modern cameras, “Touch Fujifilm” allows visitors to try any of the current range cameras and lenses offered by Fujifilm.
It’s not just about photography equipment here, and anyone with an interest in the end result of photography, the photo, should come here to visit the Photo Salon, which features weekly exhibitions of carefully selected photographic works by both professional and amateur photographers based on the power of photographic expression and general appeal of the works. There’s also the Mini Gallery, which features even more photo exhibitions.
