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.
