Shigeru Araki, Kamen Rider Stronger, passed away.

The last time we met was when he invited me to be a guest at his concert. We hadn’t seen each other in about 2 years then.

We took this picture when he stopped by my hotel a couple of years ago.

In the Toei show Chojin Bibyun he played Bibyun while I played Dr. Daima.  We worked each other for half a year.  My son was in elementary school at that time, Araki was quite kind to him.

6 or 7 years ago he was a guest in one of my theater troupe’s productions.  I had just been thinking lately that I wanted to seem him perform, and had called him on the phone.

He was 63 years old.  May he rest in peace.
