    France won against Belgium in soccer. But Europe is not about that.

    Story time:
    Whenever my grandfather travelled, he took pictures with his Leica. Nothing on this thing was automatic, and yes I own it now. When he died, my sister moved into his condo, but the basement remained partly untouched for about 35 years more. It was dark, dusty but dry, and overwhelmingly full of junk.
    Some time ago, I was helping her to finally clean it out. This was horrible at best and involved face masks, paper jumpsuits, and Mechanix gloves. As said, most of it was just junk, broken household items and alike. But there was one intriguing little cardboard box. It was neatly decorated with Japanese motives, a lot of them have seemed to be cut out from magazines. It was Wes Anderson-ish.
    At the end it contained not much. Train tickets, paper scraps, little trinkets. But there have been some strips of film. Developed, but never printed. My grandfather printed himself and was meticulously sorting the negatives into folders, along with the contacts. They were stiff and brittle, a time capsule of sorts. It took me weeks to gently clamp them down into the frames of the transparency unit of my scanner and process them.
    At the end I was able to save 67 black and white pictures from what seems to have been a trip to Japan. We could not find any date, but one picture of an airplane shows the “Japan World Exposition” logo. Therefore, and for other reasons, we think they date around 1970.
    tl;dr OP found old film w/ Japan pics.

    The view from my window ...
    One neighbour the German flag, one neighbour - a big Harley Davidson fan - the US flag. Nice view.
