GORO IBUKI IS BACK! Eating Dinner with a Toho Leading Man!

On Saturday night, my friend Yasushi and I were privileged to be invited to dinner by actor Katsuhiko Sasaki, the star of Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) and Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975). Sasaki-san is a busy actor, and we don't get to see him as much as we'd like. But when we do, it's always a blast.

Sasaki-san took us to a yakitori restaurant that he enjoys, and we all enjoyed a delicious meal. We spent a couple of hours there, and we covered many topics. Sasaki-san was very impressed with the job Yasushi and I did of taking care of him during his visit to Chicago a couple of years ago, so we've stayed in touch ever since. Here's hoping we can get together again soon!
