In conjunction with the exhibition Tokyo 1964: Designing Tomorrow, Japan House London is delighted to invite all Japanese language speakers to two free public screenings of a rare documentary showing the construction process of the first shinkansen, from the start of the works to its inauguration in October 1964.

The short film documents the most important footsteps of the construction of the iconic ‘Series 0’ Shinkansen train from April 1959 to 1 October 1964 when the New Main Line was inaugurated just before the opening of the Tokyo Olympic Games, providing a rare glimpse in the construction process and engineering prowess that made it possible.

Please note that the screening is in Japanese only, with no English subtitles. English guidelines providing a general outline of the main topics covered by the documentary are available to guests attending the event. Duration: 50 minutes.
