Expo '85 was held in Tsukuba, on the outskirts of Tokyo.
Japanese companies and foreign governments joined together to show their
predictions for the future during its 184 day run. Once the gates closed almost
every trace of Expo '85 was removed, with the majority of the site now being
used as an industrial park. Now you can turn back the clock to 1985 and relive the fun once again through this

Frequently asked questions about these photos
- Are the pictures copyrighted? Yes - all of
the images are copyrighted. You are granted a
non-exclusive right to use these photos under the following conditions:
1) The CD is not to be duplicated.
2) Prints made from the photos are for your personal use only. Photos cannot
be sold, traded, bartered or put on a web site without advance written
- What format are the images, and what is needed to
view or print them? Each picture is a JPG file, an industry standard
format which can be read in just about every image editing and viewing
package, as well as in most web browsers. Click here to
download a full-size sample.
- How were the CDs created? The original slides
and negatives were scanned on a Nikon Coolscan scanner at 4000 DPI. Digital
Ice was used for color correction and dust/scratch removal. Additional cleanup
and cropping was done in Photoshop. All pictures were saved at a JPG setting
of 10 to provide high quality images.
- What types of film were originally used? The original
35mm slides and negatives were shot
on Kodachrome and Kodacolor film stock.
- How is the quality of the pictures? To be
honest, it ranges from some obvious amateur shots which could have benefited
from a tripod all the way to some that are absolutely beautiful. A thumbnail view of each picture is available on the
contact sheets to help you decide. Click here to
download a full-size sample.
- Why are some of the pictures sideways? All of
the pictures have been left in their original format in order to make it
easier to print them. If a picture was originally taken by turning the camera
sideways the picture has been left that way. You can easily rotate them for
viewing online in most editing and viewing programs.
- If I don't like the CD can I get a refund? Just
like with music CDs and videos, discs are non-returnable. Defective discs will
be exchanged for the same title. If you have questions about a specific image
please drop me a note and I'll do my best to answer it. In case it makes you
rest any easier, I have sold several hundred CDs so far and no one has asked
for a refund.

send me anything? You can check out my feedback rating on eBay - seller
