Purprtedly a version of this film begins with the submarine Nereid visiting Japan, allowing Yoshizumi a last look at his homeland. The trip does not fit in with the sequence this scene fits into, in which the sub is on a desperate race against time from Antarctica to Washington, DC to deactivate a doomsday device. It is improbable that the sub would detour to the other side of the world for nostalgic reasons. However, the extended (Japanese) version begins with a flash-forward to Dr. Yoshizumi walking down to Patagonia and his last trip in the Nereid takes the direct route from Palmer Station to Washington, DC.

Hi, I have just ordered the DVD from CD Japan, here is the link; http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=KABD-149 it is a 2 disc set with remastered audio. it isn't available through amazon which is why i have made this post.
Great movie and must have in the original format. I was looking for the DVD for ages and finally found it. A bit steep in price but was in a great packaged DVD box. region 2. English soundtrack (some scenes contain the Japanese additions which in my opinion add to the story and makes it less 'choppy')
