Ballpark Nishiki

I found this Nishiki city bike waiting in the valet corral after the baseball game.  I don’t recognize the model, but I sure recognize those fenders. Doesn’t it look a lot like a Raleigh Sprite?  I wonder if it’s from the era when nearly all the bikes were made in Japan?

I like how it’s parked alongside a KHS Green.  I’ve always thought the Green evokes the best of 70’s-era upright utility bikes.
