  • Description

    A DISPLAY OF JAPAN'S INDUSTRIAL MIGHT CAME TO LONDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY) - BY SHIP. IT'S THE FIFTH JAPANESE INDUSTRY FLOATING FAIR, WHICH IS MAKING A TOUR OF EUROPEAN PORTS.

    ABOUT 700 COMPANIES ARE REPRESENTED ABOARD THE 12,600-TON SAKURA MARU, WHICH BERTHED AT RIVER THAMES PORT OF TILBURY, ON THE EASTERN OUTSKIRTS OF LONDON.

    THE FAIR IS PART OF JAPAN'S ENERGETIC EXPORT DRIVE. IT SHOWS A WIDE CROSS-SECTION OF THE BOOMING JAPANESE ECONOMY, CONCENTRATING ON INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS.

    THIS IS WHAT A VISNEWS CAMERAMAN SAW DURING A TOUR OF THE SHIP TODAY:--
    BICYCLES AND CARS TAKE UP 13 PER CENT OF THE DISPLAY SPACE. JAPAN IS NOW THE WORLD'S SECOND BIGGEST PRODUCER OF COMMERCIAL VEHICLES, MANUFACTURING NEARLY ONE MILLION UNITS A YEAR AND FAR OUTSTRIPPING HER NEAREST RIVAL BRITAIN.

    WHAT JAPANESE EXHIBITION WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT CULTURED PEARLS? AND A HINT FROM JAPAN'S LEADING MANUFACTURER TO WOMEN WHO WEAR PEARLS: DO NOT SPRAY YOUR NECKLET WITH PERFUME OR HAIR LACQUER - OR THE PEARLS WILL LOSE THEIR LUSTRE.

    NEXT - A MACHINE WHICH WRAPS PARCELS ALL IN ONE GO. IT IS EIGHT TIMES FASTER THAN DONE MANUALLY AND MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE IN LABOUR COSTS.

    ON TO A MACHINE MAKES FINISHING NETS, DESIGNED TO KEEP PACE WITH JAPAN'S RAPIDLY-EXPANDING FISHING INDUSTRY. IT WORKS ON MUCH THE SAME PROCESS AS A TEXTILE WEAVING MACHINE.

    AND TALKING OF WEAVING, HERE IS ONE OF THE LATEST...NOW A LOOK AT STATUS SYMBOL IN TELEPHONES - - TELEPHONES FITTED INTO A TELEVISION SCREEN SHOWING A PICTURE OF THE CALLER.

    WITH A NEW DEVICE, CLOSING AND OPENING CURTAINS BECOME A PLEASURE. AS NIGHT FALLS, YOU CAN STAY SITTING COMFORTABLY IN FRONT OF THE FIRE AND LEAVE IT ALL TO REMOTE CONTROL.

    FINALLY, A QUICK LOOK AT SEWING MACHINES MOVIE CAMERAS, AND THOSE FAMOUS JAPANESE RADIOS AND TELEVISION SETS. JUST FEW OF THE 20,000 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY.

    THE SAKURA MARU HAS ALREADY VISITED GENDA, BARCELONA AND LE HAVRE. FROM LONDON, SHE GOES ON TO ROTTERDAM, HAMBURG, COPENHAGEN, OSLO, GOTEBORG, ANTWERP AND LISBON, BEFORE RETURNING TO KOBE IN LATE AUGUST.
