This afternoon (Thursday, November 30), I had a very enjoyable time in the company of former Toho actor Ryo Tamura. Tamura-san joined Toho in 1966 and immediately started working with just about all of the studio's top directors and actors. His career is really quite something.
After the conversation, I was invited to join him and his wife for dinner, for which I was extremely grateful. I certainly wasn't expecting that level of hospitality, which made it all the more special.
