Despite the relative obscurity of the Japanese language, the Japanese movie industry has produced some directors whose finest works rank highly among the world's best movies. Kurosawa Akira is the best known and most accomplished but there are others.
This section has a number of profiles of people who have established themselves in the Japanese movie world. The number of profiles was getting so big that the page was becoming unwieldy. So, I've created separate pages for each director. The names and pictures below should help you find the person you're looking for.
