“In this pavilion an animated film brings back Japan’s history, its ancient traditions and the first impressions recorded by early adventurers and pioneers who were instrumental in Japan’s awakening. Used here, too, is an unusual arrangement of color transparencies and additional film to portray the present-day Japan.” (HemisFair Guidebook, 1968)
