Japanese newsreels

Recommended Posts



Collection of Japanese documentaries and newsreel features, dealing mainly with freight. Of particular interest are images of some forestry railways, namely Yanase in Shikoku and the unavoidable Kiso Forestry Railway. However the cherry in the pie is rare footage of the (1st, 2ft gauge) Kamioka Railway, high up in the mountains of Toyama Prefecture...complete with the enormous steel bridge which used to bring trains into JNR Inotani station.


Cheers Nicholas
