He may look tough but this Japanese version of "Oddjob", had a great sense of humor.
Look for a few photos of him and that humorous side I mentioned in future posts.

Nobody gets a crowd moving like the Mighty Sparrow!
The West Indies culture has created some amazing musical forms and calypso from Trinidad.
Burning Spear and the Mighty Sparrow toured all across Canada together during Carnival season in February, the coldest time of year.
But that didn't stop both bands from heating up the venues. Whenever the Mighty Sparrow took the stage, the audience went wild as a school of flying fish. Despite the freezing cold, this was one of the most memorable tours during my days with Burning Spear.
Here is an "action" shot which in the real world stays motionless for hours on end.
Sure it is great to see Europe but through a pane of safety glass your other four senses are cut off from the world outside.
Here the Burning band scoots through the European countryside two and half decades before the advent of smartphones and 3G have become commonplace. Now even hird world countries have free WiFi when traveling from city to city.
The first time I saw the Zenith in Paris I just had to snap a quick photo.
Complete awe came over me when I viewed this uniquely designed concert venue.
It's the feeling that goes with it that's important to me.
Little did I know how grand the Burning Spear concerts would be inside over the years I was with the band. Sold out shows to audiences that just were so appreciative. Vive La France!
