A big Happy Birthday to former Toho Godzilla producer and Toho Pictures President Shogo Tomiyama.
Although it is February 28 now in Japan, it is still the 27th here in the U.S. and it is still his birthday here.
He turned 64 today.
I first met Mr. Tomiyama in 2001 at Toho Studios in Setagaya, Tokyo. We were reunited last October over dinner at the Imperial Hotel.
