Tokyo store window – 1964

ヤシカ
Japan and the summer Olympic Games held in Tokyo.

Yashica’s latest in their popular line of SLRs. As it would have appeared in 1964.

The world was coming to Japan for the Olympics and Japan was ready to show the world its best technology and design. The Tokaido Shinkansen made its inaugural run from Tokyo on October 1st and Japan and its technology never looked back.

If you’ve been to Tokyo chances are you visited Mitsukoshi (there’s one at EPCOT at WDW, Orlando).

A trip back in time. A time when Japan showed the world what it was capable of.

Thanks for your visit!
