Here, we present the original, 1954 Japanese version, along with Godzilla: King of the Monsters!, the 1956 American reworking

Sasameyuki = The Makioka sisters by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in Japanese and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan, 1938. War is looming on the horizon, but the Makioka sisters are far more concerned with their domestic troubles. The sisters have taken over their family's kimono manufacturing business in Osaka, and are well off, traveling together to view the changing of the seasons--cherry blossoms in Kyoto, brilliant leaves in the fall. Tsuruko and Sachiko, the older two, have been married for quite some time. Tradition demands that they marry in order of their birth, but marrying off the shy, conservative Yukiko is proving difficult. These challenges have been particularly frustrating for youngest sister Taeko, who is eager to marry and move on with her life. A graceful study of a family at a turning point in history, and a poignant evocation of changing times and fading customs
