List of highest-grossing Japanese films
Movies from Japan make money by people paying to see them and from selling things like toys and DVDs. We talk about how much money these movies make from people going to the cinema. We include both animated movies and real-life movies made by Japanese people. We do not include movies made with American movie makers. We know how much money most Japanese movies make, but some older movies, especially those made before 1997, are hard to find information for. Sometimes we do not have all the information from all the countries where the movie was shown. So it is hard to say exactly which are the top movies. The movie that made the most money by selling tickets is "Manhunt" from 1976. It sold lots of tickets in China and the Soviet Union. But we do not know exactly how much money it made, so it is not on our list. We also do not count money from selling things like DVDs or toys from the movies. Some movies make a lot of money this way. For example, the movie "My Neighbor Totoro" made a lot of money from DVDs and toys.
