Japanese films have a rich history stemming from the kinetoscope's introduction to Japanese filmmakers in the late 1890s. Since then, Japanese cinema has come a long way, and Japan has the fourth largest number of feature films produced in the entire world. 

One of the biggest contributions to film history made by Japan is obviously the cult-classic horror film Godzilla. On this list of Japanese movies on Hulu, we have the original film and two of its sequels, Godzilla vs. Megalon and Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster.
