Japanese title:  “Aikido Kaiso“.  This book is a pictorial essay produced by the Aikikai Foundation to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of O’Sensei. The main book is limited to Japanese text only (back-to-front read), but the book was published with a separate English-language supplement which provides complete translation of the limited narrative text, as well as all photo captions.  A cardboard slipcover was also provided.

If your copy is missing the translation booklet, a PDF scan file (25 MB) may be requested from us via the front page e-mail link.

The book is a photo depiction of O’Sensei’s life, and contains an assortment of photos well-known to Aikidoka, as well as many that are not often found in other works. A cardboard slipcover was also provided.
