I was interested to see that you had studied at Warwick.  I am going up there in a couple of weeks to watch four of Ozu's films that are not off air so couldn't be copied.  The librarian kindly copied another four for me as well as the programme on TV 100 years of Japanese cinema.  As I expect you know they have a professor who does specialise in Osu - is that where you became interested in his films?

I don't think the BFI have an Inn in Tokyo although it was in the retrospective at the National which is where I saw it.  I have written to them to ask if they have any reviews of the retrospective but am currently waiting for a reply.  

I did try the Shochiku web site that you gave me but unfortunately I am unable to read Japanese but I did see that one of the stills shown looks like a shot from An In in Tokyo so perhaps they do have it.  Do you know whether they have a site that is in English - I did try selecting various things but didn't come across anything in English.
