- A male character explains how in Japan, men are superior to the women. The other character makes a comment about retiring in Japan for that reason.
In the opening scene, Bond is shown in bed with a woman who is apparently wearing nothing. We see her bared shoulders and upper back, and then as she turns to face the camera, she pulls the sheet up over her breasts.
The opening title sequence features silhouettes of women who are apparently nude, evidenced by a lack of any irregularities in the smooth body contours that would be caused by clothing, as well as by their visibly erect nipples.
In a sumo wrestling scene, the competitors wear traditional sumo costume, being only a band of cloth around the crotch and waist.
Two men bathe in a communal Japanese bathing room, attended by two women each. The women are wearing bikinis, and they strip their clients on camera, visible from the waist up. In subsequent scenes, we see the men's bared torsos clearly. In a shot of the baths from above, we see their bared legs and flanks; the men are clearly completely naked, though posing hides genitalia and buttocks.
A man kisses and caresses a women, then slices the straps off the woman's dress and unzips it, exposing her bared back.
A man, posing as a woman's new husband, attempts to talk her into having sex with him for appearance's sake.
The supporting lead actress spends the last third of the movie mostly wearing a bikini and shoes, while the men in these scenes are fully clothed. However, during the large fight scene, she has a poncho/wrap to cover herself.
