The fourth part of a forty episode video program designed to introduce a beginner to the necessary vocabulary and phrases needed for “daily survival” in Japan. The programs introduce us to David, a young English businessman, as he learns his way around Japanese society. Exuberant techno-graphics are used as a visual aid in introducing David, and the viewer, to the language. The videos offer information on transport, shopping, finding a hotel, as well as important advice on working and living in Japan.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
