Comedian, actor and director Takeshi Kitano says he hopes to take part in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic opening ceremony.
Takeshi, 66, was speaking to reporters after completing a new TV commercial campaign for English language school ECC.
"I've been thinking a lot about what type of performances will be featured during the ceremonies for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics...I thought, why not me!?" he said, according to Sankei Shimbun. "I am hoping to meet with the event planners sooner as opposed to later."
Takeshi has been making commercials for ECC for the past seven years.© Japan Today
