Christina in chains.
In this East meets West tale of abduction, rape, and eventual love, a desperate Japanese loner hits the jackpot when 21-year-old Swedish stunner Ingrid Jakobsson (the gorgeous Christina Lindberg) mistakenly gets into his car at the airport. Somewhat taken aback by this, but realising the golden opportunity that fate has handed to him, the lank haired loser does what any sex-obsessed Pinku pervert would do in the same situation: he takes her to his home and holds her hostage, using her to get some practical experience under his belt.
Of course, Ingrid ain't too happy about her situation at first, but after an escape attempt, which results in her being gang-banged by crazy revolutionaries in a nightclub, she becomes more appreciative of the tenderness shown to her by her original abuser—so much so, in fact, that when he finds her again and takes her back home, the lovely lady falls in love with the lucky lad (a case of what I believe is technically termed Stockholm Syndrome). What a shame then that Ingrid is being hunted by gangsters, keen to get their hands on the dope that she was smuggling inside her suitcase...
As far as Pinkus go, this one is little lighter than many, with none of the extreme torture or humiliation that one can find in the many examples of the genre. But as 'interesting' as it would have been to see doe-eyed Lindberg involved in such deviancy, Journey to Japan still manages to be a thoroughly entertaining watch simply because the star looks so absolutely scrummy throughout, spending much of the film naked and bound in ropes and chains, which—let's face it—is precisely how her fans want her.
