Films created by the Allied Forces during the Occupation of Japan: Series 2 Discs 1-6

Films were created by the US Occupation of Japan.

The index was originally created by Japanese researchers when the DVDs were created. With the publisher’s permission, the UHM Library converted them to the streaming service for the UH System research community. English translations and approximate time signatures were then added by the Japan Studies Librarian for easy access. A valid UH ID & Password are required to access the Streaming Service.
