  • Description

    Ten-pin bowling in Japan has become a leisure-time phenomenon - and so has watching the country's top female bowler, Ritsuko Nakayama, 29-year old Ritsuko combines bowling skill with sex-appeal, and she's doubled television bowling audiences in the past year, earning herself one million yen (GBP1,500) a month in the process. In this film Ritsuko shows an admiring group of children how it's done.

    SYNOPSIS: Bowling in Japan has become a leisure-time phenomenon - and this young lady is one of the reasons.

    Ritsuko Nakayama...29 years old...former office girl...she's Japan's top woman ten-pin bowler.

    In becoming the Queen of Japanese bowling Miss Nakayama is earning herself one million yen a month - that's fifteen hundred pounds sterling. It's worth it for her sponsors. Bowling is booming here. One and a half million bowling alleys, and 40,000 bowling lanes cater for the new fans....and many of them are young children. Miss Nakayama regularly gives bowling instruction to groups of children in Tokyo --- many of the children's fathers come along just to watch. Some of the children hope for a successful career in the sport, -- and are very good.

    Kumiko Onda is a twelve-year old school girl - she fell in love with the game when she scored ninety points out of a possible three hundred points in her first-ever game. With instruction from Miss Nakayama she hopes to push that up to two hundred.
