This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Junzaburo Ban. He appeared in a number of films and his works took Japan by storm with his famous fad word, “Ajapa.” As his works are loved and still talked about by old film fans to this day, SHITA COME this year screens three of his major works in Asakusa, his home field for work. In addition, we invite Shiraku Tatekawa, a rakugo master (comic storyteller) and film director, and Koichiro Yamamoto, Ban’s son and a fashion stylist, as guests on a talk show on “Ban Jun” as a comedian, actor and individual.
