But I think that the reason the general public identified with the roles I played, was that they were struck by my stance as a man who unrelentingly stands up to absurd injustices. It wasn’t just that I was just going off to a sword fight, but that my character was willing to sacrifice himself in order to protect the people important to him. JSRC: Mr. Takakura, you have been called the Clint Eastwood of Japan, what do you think of that?
Ken Takakura: It’s what someone else thinks, so I have no thoughts on the matter.

Make It A Swinging Sunday Night: Pole Dance Tokyo Student Showcase

Getting down from the pole is easy. Getting to the top--hard work.






Pole Dance. It started as something sexy, turned into an art-form, a fitness boom, and it’s still as sexy as hell. From the people who made Pole Dance an International Event. I saw a sneak preview in January—was impressed. Worth the price of admission and maybe worth the price of lessons if you have the time and stamina.
