Kadokawa celebrates Daiei's 80th Anniversary with 4K restoration

Daiei Eiga was a Japanese film studio founded in 1942. It was one of the major studios during the postwar Golden Age of Japanese cinema, producing masterpieces such as Akira Kurosawa's *Rashomon* (1950) and Kenji Mizoguchi's *Ugetsu Monogatari* (1953) and Teinosuke Kinugasa's *Gate of Hell*(1953). It also made several special effects movies, such as Gamera, Yokai Monsters, and Daimajin. To celebrate its 80th anniversary, KADOKAWA, which handles its films today, presents masterpieces digitally restored in 4K.
