Please send an email for details and a complete film clip list covering Japan.


Early footage is available on several different topics

  • 1890 Japanese acrobats

  • 1898 Launching of a Japanese war ship
  • 1905 various films, amounting to about 3 hours of footage, transferred to video showing the negotiations between the Japanese and Russians in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which resulted in the treaty of Portsmouth. This treaty solidified Japanese rule in Korea, portions of China, Manchuria, Formosa (Taiwan) and other regions. Further, it gave Japan rights over the very extensive Russian railroad system in China and almost absolute trade rights to all of these regions. Perhaps the biggest gain to Japan was that after this treaty, Japan felt comfortable enough to declare the Island of Hokaido as a part of Japan. Prior to 1867, there were very few Japanese on this island, which was populated primarily by the Ainu, who themselves at one time, controlled all of the four main Japanese islands. In addition, Hokaido had numerous Russian fishing villages. Many other issues were and problems were created by this treaty and one can perhaps argue that they were resolved in the end with World War 2.

A total of 12 pre-1907 films covering Japan is available for film producers. Please send an email for details.
