Hey, Isn't That Barom-1 Crossing the Street?!

Now here's a coincidence. While crossing the street to attend Yukimura-san's concert in Shinjuku, I ran into actor Hiroyuki Takano. Actually, he stopped me as we were passing each other in the crosswalk, which made the experience that much more fun. 

Takano-san's extensive tokusatsu credits include: Ultra Seven (1967-68), Fight! Mighty Jack (1968), Operation: Mystery (1968-69), Spectreman (1971-72), Return of Ultraman (1971-72), Kamen Rider (1971-73), Silver Mask (1971-72), and Submersion of Japan (1974-75). Of course, his most notable role was co-starring in the Toei superhero series Barom-1 (1972) as Kentaro Shiratori.

Only in Tokyo!
