2020 marks “Shochiku Cinema 100th Anniversary”!

On February 11th, 1920, Shochiku founded Shochiku Kamata Studio in Tokyo and started producing motion pictures. This year marks the 100th year since Shochiku started producing films.
On this occasion, we would like to thank everyone who has kindly supported Shochiku films throughout the rich history.
We produced Japan’s first talkie film and color film, and films shot in other ways being, aware of what is coming as new challenges, and created numerous masterpieces and memorable work.
We will continue to take on new challenges, unafraid of change, to provide you with quality experiences. We thank you for your understanding and warm support as we pursue this goal.
