Some of my Japanese film favorites so far, which I have seen from over 1100+ Japanese films and still counting. None of the films listed here are in ranking, chronological or alphabetical order, because ranking them is way too difficult for me, and I'm too lazy for sorting them in chronological or alphabetical listing order every time I make changes in this list. :)

But if I really have to rank some these films, then I would say, that films through 1 - 25 are close enough were they should actually be, and the rest of the films on the other hand, I really can't decide between them where they should be, sorry to say.

And yes, as always in these kind of lists when you'll see Human Condition III: A Soldier's Prayer, it means the whole film i.e. No Greater Love, The Road to Eternity and A Soldier's Prayer as they are one big film divided in three parts.

Films bubbling under, which I left out this time around, but may or may not appear in this list someday:
1) Helter Skelter
2) Shady
3) There Is Light
4) Ramblers
5) No One's Ark
6) The Whispering of the Gods
7) Like Someone in Love
8) Nobuko
9) Kotoko
10) Sketches of Kaitan City

and plenty of others too...
