This episode of Japan Screen Topics includes segments on hat making, television production, and imitation food used for display in restaurants. All three were shot in Tokyo, Japan. “The Latest in Hats” shows the production of Les Belles Mondes hats, a popular brand in Japan. Featured are a shop and a fashion show. “Television With a Personal Touch” show the creation of a television show and a child enjoying the finished product. “Food For the Eyes” shows how imitation food is made by Ganso Shokuhin Sample-ya, a Japanese company. The plastic food is often called “sampuru” in Japan, and is used for display in restaurants. Japan Screen Topics was a monthly publicity series produced by the International Motion Picture Company for the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 1961 to 1988. Now known as Japan Video Topics, the program continues to this day, distributed via Japanese embassies and consulates to organizations in over 100 countries.
