Kyoko Hasegawa - Japanese Hot Idol

Kyoko Hasegawa - Japanese Hot Idol - Kiyoshi Atsumi, the male lead in the movie over time ‘became’ Tora-san with many Japanese not easily recalling the name of the actual actor. In fact Kiyoshi Atsumi was a stage name – his birth name being Yasuo Tadokoro when he was born in Tokyo in the early Spring of 1928. Today, his statue actually serves as something of a pilgrimage to rival that of the nearby temple with many fans coming from near and far – home and abroad – to see what he looked like up close; even if it is in a dark shade of bronze!
