Post-Occupation Japan

After the enacting of the Treaty of San Francisco, Japan entered a period of peace and economic growth.


In 1964, Japan staged the Olympic games in Tokyo and in 1970 the World Exposition was held in Osaka. Both events attracted many Westerners, and made Japan better known in the United States and Western Europe.
