Dear Gytha,

I suppose there is no VHS of Makioka Sisters available. But MEI AH in
Hong Kong has published an all region DVD in NTSC (japanese and mandarin
with chinese subtitles). I suppose it has no english subtitles. Check
the Asian DVD Guide , an excellent
database for the east asian dvd-market. There you can also find mail
order distributors, if you want to buy the DVD although there are
probably no english subtitles. In Hong Kong Makioka Sisters is also
published as a 2 disc Video CD in PAL, letterboxed, stereo, without
english subtitles.

With kind regards
