Seven Nights in Japan is a beautifully-photographed pastiche bearing little true resemblance to the enigmatic life of bustling Tokyo, where it was lensed.

Simplistic plot details the implausible romance between a royal prince (Michael York) who is serving as a naval officer, and a petite Japanese bus guide (Hidemi Aoki) whom he meets when his ship visits Japan. There are also some ludicrous attempts to kill the prince made by a fanatical gang of bungling political cut-throats.

Christopher Wood’s script is sadly lacking in humor and pace and the storyline can only be labeled corny and unreal. York’s acting is suitably princelike although never exceptional while Aoki has occasional moments.
