The World of Kanako (Japanese. 渇き。 Kawaki., lit. "thirst.") is a 2014 Japanese crime Thriller.

The following weapons were used in the film The World of Kanako:

Smith & Wesson Model 586

The main firearm used by Akikazu Fujishima (Kôji Yakusho) is the Smith & Wesson Model 586. He uses it many times throughout the movie.

Fujishima draws his revolver...
... and fires it. Unlike most firearms that appear in Japanese films, this appears to be an actual, functioning weapon.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Detective Asai (Satoshi Tsumabuki), Detective Aikawa (Jô Odagiri), and many policemen can be see armed with snub nose Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolvers. These may be a stand-in for the Nambu Model 60 revolvers used by uniformed Japanese prefectural police officers, although many detectives and officers of the National Police Agency in Japan use the S&W Model 36 in real life as well.

The Model 36 glints in the sun, showing its glossy blued finish compared to the Nambu's dull parkerizing. The slender butt with its lack of lanyard ring is also just visible here as well.
Police officers take aim with their revolvers.


Detective Aikawa (Jô Odagiri) fires a M1911A1 pistol in a few scenes.

Pre-War Colt M1911A1 Pistol - Commercial Model known as the "Colt Government Model" - .45 ACP. This has a deep Colt factory blued finish, common for commercial variants before and after the war.

Note the slide moving and empty casing, which likely means this M1911 is also a functioning firearm.
The slide locks back after the last round.

Squirt Guns

Squirt guns are seen in the Youth Party.
