Playfield graphics: Yet to be determined

The 1975 Shiroi-Kamome from Nishijin is a common model in the United States. It is easily recognizable by the plastic parts surrounding the rails on the playfield. The upper left plasic part features a red circle and is illuminated when the rear ball hopper is low. A multicolored piping runs the length of the top of the playfield and all of the way down right side. The win light (if used) was either located behind the center attraction, or behind the pink and orange part of the bar down the right side. An additional red hopper low light was sometimes placed behind the clear window of the feeder tray. The spinners were 6-slot painted white with a pink stripe across the slots with a light blue center. The badge on the front feeder tray identifies it clearly as a Nishijin Shiroi-Kamome, which translates to english as "White bird". It will also have a small white bird insignia on the lower left above the ashtray

One of the more popular center attractions was the "Kings and Queens" (shown below), although there are at least a few others known.

The expiration sticker will be on a white background with three squares, blue, red and pink, and the number 51 will be found on in microscopic font in the red portion. It is not unusual for 1975 models to display a 52 on the expiration tag due to model year transitions.

The front case was either the standard maple stain color or an almond willow laminate.

A rare electro-mechanical edition of the 1975 Nishijin Shiroi-Kamome called the "Circuit Racer" was produced. See "1975 Nishijin Circuit Racer" for more details.
