This site is a tribute to the often INNOVATIVE, sometimesWILD, and always ENTERTAINING, cycle of action films produced by the Japanese studio, NIKKATSU, beginning in the late 1950's and continuing throughout the 1960's. During that time this great studio--with its highly talented crew of charismatic stars, flamboyant directors, and brilliant craftsmen (including set designers, writers, and composers)--cranked out some of the finest genre films ever made!
