Who made the Hanimar 55/1.7 ... Tomioka ?


I just picked up a copy of this lens, and I was trying to find out who made it. Some of my web research indicates that Tomioka probably made it, and this Hanimar lens looks exactly like the Auto Chinon 55/1.7 (M42).

I flunked the "lens history" part of my high school photography class ... Could some one in the know enlighten me? Thanks in advance, J
