Postby Candylemon » Thu Apr 16, 2015 3:02 pm

The Man of the Tokyo Olympics

Synopsis (by jadefrost): After the end of the second world war, Fred Wada Isamu (Osawa Takao), an American of Japanese descent who runs a fruit and vegetable shop in Los Angeles, has achieved success in opening shops in 10 locations due to his business acumen. He lives in a big house with his wife Masako (Tokiwa Takako), their eldest daughter Grace Miyako (Ono Yuriko), eldest son Junior Tokio (Asari Yosuke) and second daughter Mary Mariko (Hirose Suzu), and leads a life of affluence. One day, Wada sees a newspaper article on the search for someone of Japanese descent who can look after Japanese athletes coming to the United States to compete in the national swimming championship, and offers his family. Several months later, Kiyokawa (Mitsuishi Ken), the Japanese swimming team’s coach, and the swimmers Hashizume (Katsuji Ryo), Furubashi (Nakao Akiyoshi) and others arrive in the United States. At the championship, Japan, which was the aggressor during the war, comes under severe criticism. However, the Japanese swimming team breaks one world record after another and sets nine world records. It is joyous news for Japan. Several years later, Wada and his wife who have been invited to Japan, receive a phone call from Tabata Masaji (Nishida Toshiyuki), the chairman of the Japanese Swimming Federation and general secretary of the Japanese Olympic Committee. Tabata says he would like some form of help from Wada in their bid for the Tokyo Olympics...

Thank you for subbing this. Fred Isamu Wada was a real person although this story is probably more like historical fiction.
From: ... ST=print_e

The U.S.-Japan relationship has been a cornerstone of Japan's progress in the modern era, and a strong bond has developed between the two countries in the slightly more than half a century since the end of WWII. Contributing in no small part are Americans of Japanese descent (nikkei), over one million in number. Among them are influential Japanese-Americans who have gone relatively unnoticed in Japan.

The announcement of Tokyo's selection as host of the 2020 Olympics caused a wave of excitement to ripple through Japan. As expectations build for Japan's second-ever hosting of the Summer Olympics, those involved with the first games―the 1964 Tokyo Olympics―will be recalling with gratitude and respect the name of the Japanese-American man who made those games possible, the late Fred Wada.

Fred Isamu Wada, born in 1907, was a second-generation Japanese-American who became a successful produce marketer and owner of a chain of supermarkets in Los Angeles after the Second World War. He had been active in promoting the Olympics since the early 1950s, so when he was asked by the Japanese organizing committee to help win the bid, Wada accepted the challenge.

The committee was short on funds and lacked personal connections, but needed the votes of Central and South American committee members to win the hosting bid. The Japanese Olympic Committee turned to Wada, who was fluent in Spanish. Using his own money he traveled for over a month, visiting countries throughout the region to persuade the International Olympic Committee members to vote for Japan to host the '64 Olympics.

The Tokyo Olympics showed the world how Japan, which had been devastated by the war, had gotten back on its feet. One dynamic force that had propelled Japan forward was the acceptance of goods made in Japan in the global marketplace.

Japan's success in the United States, the largest consumer goods market, owes much to Americans of Japanese descent who supported the marketing efforts of Japanese firms. They were people like George Aratani, who established the U.S. sales arm of Kenwood, the Japanese audio equipment manufacturer (today JVC Kenwood).

Fred Wada passed away at the age of 93 in 2001; Aratani passed away at 95 in 2013. But their story is much more than a distant echo from the past.

Thank you for the subs! I've been wanting to watch this. I love SPs like these that is based on 20th century Japanese history which is not about WW2. :-)
