It is also a period of hard struggle of the Japanese filmmakers with state censorship for expanding the boundaries for the image on the screen. They never hung on the wall, which traditionally is dominated by paintings and calligraphic drawings.

Hitomi Kobayashi"s career in the AV field would last for over a decade and a half, earning her the title "Japan"s Queen of Adult Video.See more
