Leader Shimaguchi attended the press conference and reception for the inauguration of the Japanese edition of ARAB NEWS

On October 21, a press conference and reception was held at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan to launch the Japanese edition of "Arab News." Invited to attend the event was 剱伎衆 Kamui Shimaguchi, the leader of 剱伎衆 Kamui.

Arab News, the largest English-language media outlet in the Middle East based in Saudi Arabia, launched its Japanese edition, available in both English and Japanese, to coincide with the coronation of the Emperor of Japan to show its friendship with Japan.


At a press conference attended by Defense Minister Taro Kono and Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, Faisal expressed his determination to serve as a bridge to deepen exchanges between Japan and the Middle East in the future.

The relationship with Mr. Faisal and Mr. Ali, also of Arab News, began with an interview with the Shimaguchi leader.

Since then, he has been coming to Japan to take swordsmanship lessons, and through this relationship, Shimaguchi was also invited to the event.








During the press conference, a movie was shown that visualized the company's thoughts and concept for the Japanese edition of "Arab News," and at the end of the movie, 剱伎衆 Kamui made an appearance to perform!


Faisal-san and Ali-san's expressions as they laughed at the surprised Shimaguchi leader made me feel their friendship for the leader.

The event was attended by Go Nagai, who is popular in the Middle East and Europe for his works such as "Devil Man" and "Grendizer," as well as various business, art, and entertainment professionals with ties to the Arab world, who came to deepen their friendship with each other.


The press conference and reception gave us a premonition of the many possibilities that lie ahead for 剱伎衆 Kamui/Kenkido in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.
