Okinawa,
Japan


1975

Theme:
"The sea we would
like to see"

Site:
coastal area and
floating ocean
platform


Situated mostly on a floating ocean platform called the Aquapolis, the theme of oceans would be repeated at Genoa's Expo '92 and Lisbon's Expo '98. The island had just recently been under U.S. control, so much of the impetus behind holding the exposition was to celebrate it's becoming, once again, part of Japan.
