Seamlessly blending an American tale with Japanese aesthetics and cultural specificity, Yamada Yoji invents his unique brand of affectionate human drama imbued with comical invention, best exemplified in his record-breaking Torasan series.

Takakura Ken creates an iconic image as the tough guy with a soft heart.
