Sony Made in JapanThis film explores the paths taken by four Japanese corporations - Sony, Benihana of Tokyo, Honda, and Sega - to enter the American market.

Listen to Akio Morita of Sony on how he first came to build the pocket radio after observing an American family at home.


Learn how Rocky Aoki was inspired by the "smell of America" and by "American showmanship" to produce the Benihana chain of restaurants with their flamboyant chefs.

See how Toshiro Honda, who once noted that "the most precious thing in the world are not diamonds but people" became the producer of America's most popular automobile.

"Paired with its counterpart, Made in America, this video is a must for anyone who wants to understand contemporary Japan and its dynamic society."
- Dr. Fred Notehelfer,
Director of UCLA Center for Japan Studies
