LOVE OF ECHO
(Koi Yamabiko)

The story begins in the year 1696, about 160 miles northeast of Edo at Ina Village in the Province of Iida. A man is brutally murdered and his famed 'Shamisen' called the "YAMABIKO" stolen. During the reign of 5th Shogun, Tokugawa Tsunayoshi (who was, in fact, quite young) and leadership of the nation was really in the hands of Yanagisawa Mino-no-kami Yoshiyasu. Samurai were forced to give up archery, and the merchants gave up the abacus. In addition, the cruel and powerful Lord Yanagisawa had long coveted the 'YAMABIKO' Shamisen and hatched a plot to take it. Upon getting married to the daughter of the murdered man, Prince Kogenta swears to avenge his father-in-law's death and retrieve the family heirloom. This is an action-packed, exciting motion picture from the golden age of Toei Films.

SASAKI KOJIRO-Part 1
(Sasaki Kojiro)

Historical facts: Sasaki Kojiro (1585 - April 14, 1612) also known as Ganryu Kojiro) was a prominent Japanese swordsman, born in the Fukui Prefecture. Kojiro's favored weapon during combat was a
straight-edged nodachi with a blade-length of over 90 cm (3 feet) long. As a comparison, the average blade-length of the regular katana seldom surpasses 70 cm. It was called the "Monohoshi Zao" (Clothes-Drying Pole, often translated into English as "The Drying Pole"). Despite the sword's length and weight, Kojiro's strokes with the weapon were unnaturally quick and precise.

Movie Synopsis: Ronin Sasaki Kojiro longs to find a loving companion to fill the void in his heart as he pursues his ultimate goal of becoming a master swordsman. Along the way, he encounters another great swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi! The two swordsmen are destined to clash in an epic duel to the death. This movie is considered by many as the ultimate portrayal of Sasaki Kojiroís life.
