In Belgium, Japanese pianos made their first appearance at the 1958 World's Exposition in Brussels. They were looked upon with suspicion. Between the 1970 and 1980s, they gradually made their appearance in music academies, conservatories and among professionals. From the 1980s, they put heavy pressure on European piano manufacturers, who were gradually disappearing. This 1968 Yaaha is a typical example of the first Yamaha's sold in Belgium.
