There was a Kino dvd, "Lumiere  Brothers' First Films"  (1996) that is now out of print. I am not sure the Japan films were included, though, or what the rights for use of the footage from the DVD entail.

I was looking for something in the public domain that I could loop and project during an event that I am organizing in November. Please contact me off-list if you know where I can obtain a copy of this footage.
