  • Description

    Titles read: "NIPPON CONTRASTS".

    Tokyo, Japan.

    Various shots of a children's playground - Yamasaka Park (sp?). Good shots of Japanese children playing on slides and roundabouts, riding on a model train and looking at tulips in the huge park flower beds.

    We then cut to a snow-covered village outside Tokyo where amateur snow sculptors are taking part in a competition. Several shots of the artists at work on their large but intricate snow sculptures. Some men walk around judging the finished pieces at the end of the contest.
