Also earlier in the week was my lunch with former Toho actor Toru Ibuki. We had an enjoyable lunch near his office, during which he signed my Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster (1964) DVD sleeve. It was already signed by the film's star, Yosuke Natsuki, so I was pleased to add Ibuki-san's!
Following our meal, we returned to his office, and he showed me many pictures and news clippings from his collection. It was exciting to see everything. As always, Ibuki-san was a generous and gracious host, and I hope to have a chance to see him again very soon!
