Tameharu Nagata
  Tameharu Nagata, born 1928, is the self-described “last kamishibai man in Tokyo.” After reading this wonderful article about him, Storycard Theater’s Hazuki Kataoka and David Battino visited him in June 2009 and tagged along as he performed. The photos below are from some 200 they took that day.

Also see David’s followup article in Make magazine: “Manga on Wheels (with Snacks).”
