Kosuzume Tōge (小雀峠 Kosuzume Pass?) is a 1923 black and white Japanese silent film directed by Koroku Numata. Despite jidaigeki star Tsumasaburo Bando only appearing in a minor role, the film is significant because it is the oldest preserved film featuring the actor. The value is further increased by the film being one of the very few extant works featuring the period drama star Banya Ichikawa in the lead role.
