- The Green Cat (1983)
- Rain Boy (1983)
- Lunn Flies Into the Wind (1985)
- Yamataro Comes Back (1986)
- Adachi ga Hara (1991)
- Akuemon (1993)

It's a very short story (under half an hour), all about the friendship between a orphaned bear cub and a steam locomotive. Yeah, you read that right. A little bear is taken from his read more
