I am turning 60 this year. I am efToshi-otoko (a man who was born in the year of the same zodiac sign - symbolic animal - with that of this year). Supposed to wear a red Japanese vest to celebrate it. So, I am having 4DAYS event! It has been almost 45 years since I made a debut at the Shinjuku Pit Inn when I was in high school. My time has passed so fast. During those years, this is the first 4DAYS event that I am having. I will keep me fit with running and training for those important days. I sincerely look forward to seeing you all there.
