An online photograph of a shop window caught my attention. Seeing others by the same author I could see that it was a small photography shop in Tokyo. I was able to get in touch via email, with the store owner, to be interested in the KGOON that appeared in the photo. Mr. super friendly, I answer with a more detailed photo and its history: "This product is a very faithful copy of Leitz's Kgoon.

This model seems to be a short-term product produced by Schmitt-Shoukai, shortly after World War II.

The Leica Tokyo will soon disappear and The Actina Tokyo will appear

I think Rights was reluctant to use the name Leica for Japanese products.

As a result, this model disappeared immediately from the market. "
After negotiating, I was able to add it to my collection.
