Do you by chance remember from which country these fittings were purchased from?

 

Unfortunately, I can't say. Sry.

As this thread progresses it gets more interesting, and we do seem to be finding an actual type appearing. As has been said, given the actual spread of the IJA geographically it would be no surprise at all to see locally made equipment, especially as the war dragged on.

But I suspect it is short for the Japanese word for arsenal (造兵).

 

The closest Japanese word for arsenal or armory (armoury) is 工廠 [kōshō].  The army used this term until 1940 and then changed to 造兵廠 [zōheishō].  Even though zōheishō is translated into English as arsenal, it would be better to think of it as an arsenal complex.
