Last March, I attended a rakugo performance by Shinpei Hayashiya, the independent filmmaker behind Gamera 4: The Truth and Reigo the Deep-Sea Monster vs. the Battleship Yamato. He also had a small role in Godzilla 1985 (1984).
After the performance, our group went to dinner at a nearby restaurant. A fun evening was had by all. I was reminded of this evening the other day. I never posted the photos, so here they are!
