World's First Exhibition of Golgo 13

Sakai City Cultural Hall

The exhibition of "The World of Golgo 13" is held in Sakai City Cultural Hall near JR Sakai Station.
Have you ever heard of "GOLGO 13" ?  Golgo13 is a gekiga, or a picture-card show, which Saito Takao has been issuing 173 volumes for 45 years.

The World of GOLGO 13

The cumulative total circulation of Golgo 13 exceeds 200 million.  This ranked number 2  after "One Piece" with a circulation of about 273 million among cartoons in Japan. 
  I've been drawn unconsciously to the stories against the background of real international situation and I read them on the journey by Shinkansen, or a bullet train, all the time.  The reason why I was attracted is that the story covers a wide variety of genres such as wars, disputes, terrorism, latest technology, history, arts, sports and the like.

Golgo 13 is a super sniper. His famous words go as follows.
1.Never stand behind me without making any noise.
2.A true professional waits for a chance to the very last moment.
3.It is fools that do something without thinking it through first and people proudly telling it are more foolish.
4.I'll never see my client again, unless he betrays me.
I think both the second and third words are applied to the present as well.

By the way the author Saito Takao was born in Sakai city.
Speaking of Sakai, it is famous for the largest keyhole-shaped tumulus in Japan and you can see a panoramic view of Osaka including the tumulus from the observation deck on the 21st floor in Sakai City Hall.

Hideo is very organized and knowledgeable! He met us in the lobby of our hotel and we spent about 5.5 hours together. He knew quite a bit about the history of Kyoto and Japan in general and answered all of our questions. It was very hot, but we managed quite nicely as there were enough times we were in a cooler areas. His English, while not like a native speaker's, was perfectly fine. We had no tr...

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees...

4 months ago Traveler: Sandy -   Tour Guide: Hideo

A group of six adults had arranged for Hideo to meet us at the ship and take us to the castle and adjoining gardens and then go on the rope way above the town. We found to our disappointment that Hideo had no interest in the group. He rarely volunteered any information, but did have some answers if we persisted with questions. One of our party was using a walkingstick and he showed no inter...
