  • This is the place the first ever film was projected in Japan in 1897 by Katsutaro Inabata. Nothing really to see so skip it unless you're a huge film fan.  more »
  • Because it was mentioned on the TV that is not sorry, but description invented by the LUMIERE brothers cinematograph just reminds me 1 scene "picture of the century. It is being projected train comes running toward the audience, and the audience ran in scrambling. It may have felt between civilization and foreign to marvel, as well as Japanese but I don't know what images are projected here.
