Original 1970 Japanese B2 poster by Akira Kurosawa for the film Dodes'ka-den (Dodesukaden) directed by Akira Kurosawa with Yoshitaka Zushi / Kin Sugai / Toshiyuki Tonomura / Shinsuke Minami. Very Good-Fine condition.

Dodes'ka-den (どですかでんDodesukadenonomatopoeia term equivalent to "Clickety-clack") is a 1970 Japanese film directed by Akira Kurosawa, based on a book by Shūgorō Yamamoto. It was Kurosawa's first film in color.

The film title "Dodeska-den" are the playacting "words" uttered by the boy character to mimick the sound of his imaginary tram (trolley car) in motion. It is not a commonly used onomatopoeic word in the Japanese vocabulary, but was invented by author Shūgorō Yamamoto in Kisetsu no nai machi [ja] ("A Town Without Seasons"), the original story on which the film was based.

In standard Japanese language, this sound would be described as gatan goton, equivalent to "clickity-clack" in English.
