Q Please tell me what kind of movie this film is. Ko Saito: Now that films are becoming increasingly mild due to the importance of compliance, a film maker called Kazuya Shiraishi You can see how cars are fighting. It’s too inconvenient now that this film stands out if you put it back. Heisei is about to finish, but when the main character of the symbol of the time of Showa, Boto, has been time-slipped, the modern person can touch him by the chemical reaction with the analog thing that is only deepened because of the present. Something comes back. I guess that’s a movie like that. As a role, we are fighting for the death in “mah-jong”, but is Saito-san doing mah-jong even in private? Koto Saito: When I was little, I used to play mahjong with my family. There is a blank from there, but a mahjong teacher comes with me in the wake of a work called “snack”, and I am instructed in mahjong at various places, and from that point, the heat of mahjong has rekindled among me as well. The feeling is that it has flowed in this time. In the play, I use online games to fight the machine, but in the private, I fight against people in various regions online.

Q In the mahjong roaring 2020 movie, a scene in which a boy named Tsutomu Saito plays mahjong in one spot is evaluated, and it received an award for the best newcomer in “Best Fundoshi Store Word 2019”. Please let me know what you think. Takumi Saito: If you evaluated, did you see the movie (laughs)? For me, I think it is not a prize by Saito Koko, but an award received by a few Tetsu. Q Saito-san, who has many hobbies, please tell me about your most passionate interests. Takuto Saito: I’m self-taught in photography, but I really want to do it. The opportunity is KinKiKids. I used to shoot with a private camera in a variety of KinKiKids’s show that previously appeared in the movie Bansen. The photo became the KinKiKids’s commemorative single jacket. I wanted to face each other seriously from that point.

Q What kind of activities are you doing in the photo? Takuto Saito: I am currently serializing in the magazine “Figaro Japon” and I am taking pictures of various people. The photographs were to be displayed at the Louvre museum at the end of last year, and I received an award, but nobody in Japan knows it! However, on the other hand, there is a sense that the gap to receive the newcomer award of Today’s (2/12) Hundsia Ward is maintaining my balance now (lol) Q Please tell me the TV program that Saito is focusing on. Koto Saito: The most important thing I’m aware of right now is live sports broadcasting. I’ve been playing football for a long time, but I often watch on television what are the figures that are exciting at that time, such as tennis and baseball. How is the birth of a drama without sporting lines … something that does not rival our profession. So I’m the genre I want to see as a competitor to sports. It is a sport that you absolutely do not want to “record and see later”.
