Contemporary Japanese Cinema

I’m hungry for contemporary Japanese cinema, but I’m suffering from braindeadness about what to seek out. So … gimme me some lists!

I’m wanting stuff especially in the vein of “The Taste of Tea,” “Tokyo Sonata,” etc. but really I’m just looking for volume here more than anything else.

How about the movies of Hirokazu Koreeda? Still walking, Nobody knows and Maborosi are recommended.
