The company originated during the war, when it started as a factory of Tomioka in Kamakura (the historic city, now effectively a distant southern suburb of Tokyo). The factory was precisely located in the town of Dai, immediately to the north of the main city, in a zone which is commonly known as Åfuna, hence the name of the company. The factory produced binoculars and other military optics. Tomioka's main factory (in Yukigaya-Åtsuka, Tokyo) was destroyed by bombing toward the end of the war, and when the war ended Tomioka moved to a western outer suburb of Tokyo. Its Kamakura factory, which had escaped unscathed, raised capital independently and became a separate company.For anyone outside of the USA, please contact me for shipping prices and we will be happy to ship to you!
