A shot of a ship. The Olympic rings are seen above a stadium, with the words “Tokyo” and “1964” also on the board, and the crowd claps. A flock of birds flutters through the stadium. Emperor Hirohito speaks, then the Olympic torch is lit. Japanese women in western-style clothing parade around the track. The emperor and his family, dressed in European suits, greet other world leaders politely.
