Japanese Movie Database

The Japanese Movie Database (日本映画データベース, Nihon Eiga Dētabēsu), better known as JMDB, is an online database of information about Japanese movies, actors, and production crew personnel.[2] It is similar to the Internet Movie Database but lists only those films initially released in Japan. Y. Nomura started the site in 1997, and it contains movies from 1899 (Second Year of Movies in Japan recorded) to the present day.[2][3]
