Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Filmed on location, Escapade in Japan stars child actors Jon Provost and Roger Nakagawa. Separated from their parents, Tony (Provost) and Hiko (Nakagawa) wander through such sites as a Shinto temple, the teeming streets of Kyoto and a geisha house. Believing that they've somehow broken the law, the boys do their best to elude the authorities, who of course only want to reunite the kids with their families. Teresa Wright and Cameron Mitchell co-star as Provost's parents, Kuniko Miyake and Susumu Fujita play Nakagawa's mom and dad, and a young Clint Eastwood shows up as a Marine named "Dumbo." Produced by rapidly fading RKO Radio Pictures, Escapade in Japan was distributed by Universal-International.
