Amateur home movie footage, many short shots of streets in Japan (presumably Tokyo, although the title is not an original continuum with what follows) big buildings, people in the streets, many cars. Two women in kimonos, soldiers, Japanese flags on top of a building, a big stadium, a tram, a bridge over a river, a statue of a warrior on a horse, many people crossing the roads, a view of the city from a moving train. In a religious ceremony, monks in different costumes carrying on their shoulders a beautifully carved wooden construction inside which sits their holy man. They all walk in a row, men carrying gongs, musicians being carried too. They walk towards a shrine. A religious ceremony is taking place. A tennis game. A big gate -Japanese writing on top. A market. A Pagoda. Smiling people coming out of a building. A Japanese garden. A man on a train platform waving his hand. A park, a big pagoda, a horse and wagon. Sea side is seen through a cave's entrance. A view of the cave from the shore. A man on a boat. Passengers smiling. A statue of Buddha - its legs, its head. Views in the mist.
