MI6 agent James Bond (Sean Connery) fakes his own death before going to Tokyo to investigate who hijacked an American spacecraft. He breaks into Osato Chemicals, run by president Mr. Osato and steals documents that include a photo of the cargo ship Ning-Po.

He then arranges a meeting with Osato, posing as a buyer, but the president sees through him and orders him killed. Bond escapes and discovers the ship was carrying materials to make rocket fuel. Along with Japanese secret service leader Tiger Tanaka, Bond finds that the mastermind behind the operation is Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE.
