World’s Fair Wednesday – Osaka ’70 Home Video

Here’s some home video footage of a trip to Japan in 1970.  The beginning starts out with a little sightseeing but they arrive at the ’70 Expo in Osaka around 2:00 in.  It’s great to see the festival live and in color, and the grainy film gives it an added touch.  I love the monorail trip and the quick takes of the things they passed.  Also the Soviet Union pagoda, unintentionally filmed to look like a shining centerpiece.

 


So many people attended!  I also like the perspective you get on the “floating city”, with all the people gathered around it.  Huge, and industrial! The 80’s future beckons!
