BACK IN TOWN (AGAIN)! Masami Tayama Returns to Akebonobashi!

On Friday, September 11, I was able to catch a good portion of Masami Tayama's concert at Back in Town in Akebonobashi after leaving work. As readers of this blog ought to know, Tayama-san played Shinji Chujo in the original Mothra (1961) as a child actor but eventually became a successful singer.

This was my second time at Back in Town, the previous time was almost exactly a year ago for another concert with Tayama-san. As always, he was a big hit with the crowd, and he gave it his all.


Even though many fans were all vying for Tayama-san's time after the show, I was able to talk with him for a few minutes. Tayama-san isn't sure when his next concert will be in Tokyo, so I'll have to wait for word from the man himself.


Many thanks to Tayama-san for putting on an excellent concert and for being a true gentleman. Hope to see you again very soon!
