In 1914 (Taisho 3) 100 years ago, miniature called "Ull Leica" was produced later now in Ernst rights company in German uettsura by Oscar Baru NAC (Oskar Barnack).

"Leica M3" was released in 1954 (Showa 29), and the innovativeness gave big shock to camera makers including Japan of the world, and "Leica" always pulled the world photograph industry as camera using 35 millimeters of films.

It releases "Leica M8" in 2006 (Heisei 18). We showed the name of "Leica" to the world again, and, as for the appearance of digital camera in succession to fabric and operability of conventional "M" series, it was remote cause of the spread of lens exchange-type digital cameras. And "Leica M9" of succeeding plane stood in top as camera world's smallest for lens exchange type digital camera to incorporate 24*36 millimeter of "Leica size" full size imaging element.

By this temporary exhibition, we get cooperation of Leica camera Japan and reach first 100 years, and, in past and present and the future of "Leica" to invite new departure to, display introduces about "Leica" and Japanese relation.
