It's already been a month and I never had the chance to write about the Tokyo International Film Festival. This always happens when I'm preparing for a film shoot. I lose track of time. Today becomes yesterday, tomorrow becomes today, and I don't even notice it.

I was one of the producers of the segment, Pigeon by Isao Yukisada (along with Ming Jin and Shunsuke Koga-san) So, here are some photos of me at the red carpet. I managed to meet popular actor Saitoh Takumi, whom I met two years ago in Bali when he was doing the film Taksu . I also met Rin Takanashi, the star of Abbas Kiarostami's final film Like Someone in Love .
