Katsutaro Inabata was born in 1862. He was a businessman who imported dyes from France, which were used to color Japanese army uniforms khaki. During his studies in France, he was a classmate of the Lumiere brothers who invented cinema. Because of this, Katsutaro Inabata was the first person to import and show films in Japan, which played a great role in the modernization of Japan.
