In this episode, we take a short break from Japanese history to touch on another related interest - Japanese movies. With hundreds of Japanese movies now easily available in the West, it can be tough to filter through what is worth watching. So, we thought we'd put together a Japanese Movie podcast where we could recommend to you movies that we think you should see. Rather than recommend "the best" Japanese movies, we decided to focus on less known movies that are great for their own specific reasons that we touch on in the podcast. After all, everyone interested in Japan and Japanese movies has already seen every Kurosawa movie out there. Since listing the movies we recommend here would defeat the purpose of the podcast, you'll have to listen to find out our recommendations - we hope you find this both interesting and informative! If you have another movie you'd like to recommend, feel free to add a comment on the podcast blog.
