◆ “I want to realize my next dream with Kodansha”
Mr. Horigome willingly agreed to be appointed as an IIS ambassador this time. Through this partnership, he communicated the importance of having a dream and the appeal of skateboarding not only as a sport but also as a culture. It was because I wanted to. Along with the cultural background of the development of skateboarding, Horigome’s desire to convey the existence of creators such as the craftsmen who make boards and the filmers who record them, in a way that can only be done by Kodansha, which has spun a lot of stories. I’m planning to tell you. Please pay attention to how Kodansha will run side by side with Horigome, who made his dream come true when he went to America alone at the age of 18.
