Guide to the Akira Kurosawa Digital Archive

This is an English language guide to the Akira Kurosawa Digital Archive (see also news post here), which is currently only available in Japanese.

What is the Akira Kurosawa Digital Archive

The archive, put together by Kurosawa’s estate and Ryukoku University Digital Archives Research Center, is an amazing digital collection of over twenty thousand pages of Kurosawa’s screenplays, photos, storyboards, drawings, notes, newspaper clippings, personal scribblings and other materials. Among the high quality scans you can find unfilmed screenplays, screenplay drafts that were later revised, production memos and notes, continuity drawings, and much much more. While most of it is in Japanese, there are also some English documents, and of course plenty of pictures to check out.

How to use

The archive operates on a flash-based user interface. It is not the best or smoothest user interface out there, but it does its job. Pretty much everything is in Japanese.

Go to the archive front page, and click the link under the picture where it says “◆黒澤デジタルアーカイブはこちら◆”. This will load up the actual flash user interface. Once there, you can start browsing.

On the left-hand side of the interface there is a list of categories. It is this index that I have translated in this guide. The numbers in my guide correspond to the category numbers in the archive. The order presented here is the same that I see at the archive; note that in a couple of places this order does not follow the numbering.

There are a few questions marks in my guide, which indicate that I am not sure about my translation. I am not a native Japanese speaker, or indeed much of a Japanese speaker at all. Any suggestions, corrections, additions or modifications are welcomed with open arms.

If you find something really interesting, let us know in the comments section here!
