A Taste of Life in the Showa Era

8mm home movies recorded in the Showa era (1926-1989) show a time of affluence even without goods, a time when families supported each other and the community came together, and life was full of smiles. Now, about half a century after they were recorded, the films are beginning to have value as local historical documents that preserve the life of the region. 8mm-labo is a small laboratory that researches, discovers, restores, and re-edits films that would otherwise be buried, and revives the lifestyle of the Showa era. Through this site, we will pass on the small eyes of the people of the city to the future.
