Tokyo in the 1970s
Japan is at a crossroads in the 1970s. The country is re-industrializing rapidly and everything is beginning to mix: Technology and craftsmanship, the culture of the West and that of the ancestors, modernity and tradition.
Tokyo now has a population of over 11 million people and the largest skyscraper in Asia is being built. As the momentum of the West slows, Japan launches its first satellite in space, exports its cars around the world, and sends its first couturiers to Paris for fashion shows.
The West gradually begins to discover Japanese culture: The first episodes of Japanese television series are broadcast and the first influences of Japanese pop culture become visible.
