“Little America” In Japan (Jun, 1950)
JAPANESE get a capsule-size view of the U.S.A. at the America Fair, sponsored by newspapers in Nishinomiya. Covering 75 acres, the fair includes models of famed American buildings as well as such natural phenomena as Grand Canyon, in miniature, of course. New York City’s sky line is represented by a detailed scale model as are many of Washington’s impressive buildings. On the lighter side are exhibits of bingo games and slot machines! Even the famous sculptures on Mount Rushmore have been skillfully reproduced, with a strange Oriental look.
