Video: Rare Archival Footage of Early Twentieth Century Tokyo

EYE film museum have made this wonderful short film of life in Japan at the beginning of the twentieth century available to view on Youtube. The first section was filmed in 1913, and the second in 1915.  Both show many people in traditional costumes such as kimonos, and some with elaborate hairstyles. The ball control skills displayed by the young girls are particularly impressive!
