The National Film Archive of Japan, after their popular Japanese Animated Film Classics site, has opened up another site focused on images from the Meiji era. It is called "The Meiji Period on Film." Right now, it only features some still images and five films, the most famous of which are Momijigari, Chushingura, and Nihon nankyoku tanken. The digital transfers are quite good and the versions are not necessarily the same as what has been floating around on the net, so these versions can be quite interesting. But unlike the Anime site, there are no English subtitles, even for films with intertitles. Let's hope they add some films and some subtitles.
