Fuyuki Murakami passes away

Fuyuki Murakami, who played a newspaperman in Kurosawa’s Ikiru, has passed away at the age of 95. Although the small role he had in Ikiru was his only role under Kurosawa, Murakami’s filmography is quite large and interesting due to his role as one of Toho’s many supporting actors.

There is a rather good obituary at SciFi Japan.
