British Pathe Films of Japan

Whilst doing some research for my upcoming trip to London an internet search for 'japanese london' offered up this little gem.

This charmingly British video from 1968 shows Japanese culture in London including origami, a traditional restaurant and bonsai.
The site is also home to other videos about Japan including footage of Princess Alexandra's 1961 visit to the country and a film of a kendo practice in 1960s London.
