Toho releasing Kurosawa films in 4K Ultra HD in Japan

Kurosawa 4K Toho
It looks like Toho is starting to release Kurosawa’s films in Japan as 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, with Ikiru and Stray Dog coming out tomorrow (March 15, 2023), with other films following later this spring.

The releases announced so far seem to be:

  • Stray Dog: March 15, 2023
  • Ikiru: March 15, 2023
  • Yojimbo: April 19, 2023
  • Sanjuro: April 19, 2023
  • High and Low: May 17, 2023
  • Kagemusha: May 17, 2023

As far as I can see, these don’t really include extras, other than the original trailer and a photo gallery. No English subtitles are provided either, but at least Japanese subtitles seem to be included.

You can check Amazon.co.jp for more information about prices and availability.
