All About Lily Chou-Chou is my all time favourite. Almost every frame is beautiful, especially those in the rice fields! The soundtrack is absolutely stunning too! Departures (おくりびと) is also a favourite of mine, so is Heavenly Forest (ただ、君を愛してる).

All very beautiful films!

My favorites are Tampopo and Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl. Food, shelter and clothing are the three main needs of the life, as Tampopo teaches us the life's lesson to alive in this world. Like how they run business of ramen.

I have a soft spot for Tokyo Sonata. It's like the American Beauty of the Japanese family.

Hard to say what my fave is especially as I've got a few at home I haven't had time to watch yet. So far I like a lot of Kitano's films espec' Kikujiro and Sonatine. Both beautifully shot. I also like My neighbour Totoro a lot and Princess Mononoke, need to see more Miyazaki films I think!

Ringu and Ringu 2.

Also Battle Royale and Casshern <===== (Introduced me to j-cinema, never have I ever seen people "talking out" their feelings as I have in this).

I have two. Hands down Princess Mononoke or Castle in the Sky. Really any Miyazaki movie to be honest.
Funny too cause I'm really not an animation fan.

I'm more of an animation fan, and I absolutely love Tekkonkinkreet. Pretty much all of Miyazaki's movies as well, but mainly Princess Mononoke and Nausicää.

My two favorite Japanese movies are Tampopo and Kikujiro.

These are among two of my all time favorite movies. Hard to believe Kikijiro came out 17 years ago. Some much time has passed.

I watched a gem of a film recently named ' Sweet Bean ' directed by Naomi Kawase. Really enjoyed it and will watch it again.

It's frustrating how few Japanese movies are available on Amazon Prime or Netflix. I'm still trying to figure out how to obtain / watch all of the Midnight Diner series.

Not sure how you ended up with 854. Just a search in English using the phrase ' Japanese Movie ' and I have 263 results.
By going to Amazon Japan and not searching in English....
