Smile i have footage film japan 1920's - 08-20-2008, 04:36 PM

dear all...

for many years late, i collect some old thing, antic and rare things, and a part of my collection, there is an old footage film about condition Japan around 1920's.
that film made by someone who ever traveling to japan on that time, he traveled with many people from Holland, and in that film shows about :
- National Park in Nikko there is a shrines and old buildings from wood.
- Keygon waterfall, and there is a rope train on that mountain.
- situation on a town, there is so many old cars parking and there is an old Bus.
- it was in a train and there was another train push another train so that that train can passing the mountain, because after sometimes the other lokomotif stop behind.(looks like that)
- they use a kano or a boat passing a river and they didn't use any safety clothes, one man in front and one man behind to steer the boat, that boat don't have any machines, so they use just the stream from the river.very nice avenue on that time, it was so natural and very nice, but i don't know where it was exactqly, because i never been in japan.
- it was in a harbour, and the passenger have to use small kano to go to the big ship, and so many kanos take to the ship, and it shows an old ship who powered by so many people, they must walk in a circle to steer the ship, i think we can not find anymore in this time.
- in the ship there was a ceremony that someone seat in a chair and after three priest wipe the head and then they throw away in the pool who right behind the chair, and there is so many people involve or will do that, do you know what kind of ceremony is that?
-in a place there is a brigade from kingdom, and there is someone seat in a tend, and that tend take by 8 persons on their the front there is someone riding a horse with a complete kingdom uniform.
-and there is more situation on that film.

that is a small synopsis about my old original 8mm footage film.and the total duration is 26 minutes in 2 rolls.

who would really need this film or should really pay attention of collection like this ?
