The mechanisms by which products, including binoculars, are exported, imported, and distributed through wholesale and retail channels are seldom transparent. If you don’t believe that, just take a current product that you don’t know anything about and try to define the channels of it’s path prior to your possession. There may be a number of reasons for distributors to be discreet, but among them is that they do not want to be bothered with consumer inquiries, complaints, returns, or warranty issues. To the degree that distribution channels for current products are difficult to analyze, they are much more so for 60 year old products. I have invested time in trying to research the distribution of these miniature binoculars, and I am happy to share the information. If you have additional first hand information, or if you know what additional importers and distributors were active with Japanese binoculars in the 1950’s and 1960’s and 1970’s in the US, Canada, the UK, Scandinavia, Australia, Ireland, Germany and elsewhere please send me the info at miniature.binoculars@gmail.com .
