The Tougodo company (東郷堂) was founded in 1930, in Japan, and functioned fully until 1945, when the main factory was destroyed in the February 1944 air strikes. Two of the company’s other manufacturing sites survived, and began to produce cameras at a later date. The first, Toyohashi, began production in 1947 and its offerings included Hit, Hobix, Hobiflex and Toyoca cameras. Yamanashi, the other site, produced Mekai, Muse, and Semi Rabbit cameras from the later 1940s onward. Toyohashi ceased its camera manufacturing in 1960, while Yamanashi evolved first into the Meikōsha company, and then into Meikai Sangyō, and produced a number of cameras, including Meisupii and Meikai EL. Until the 1980s traces of this company could still be found.
