ELVIS : ALOHA FROM HAWAII
-Through The Eyes of Japan-
Now, in 2023, fifty years after Elvis’ legendary concert in Hawaii...many valuable, long-lost negatives have been discovered : Beautiful photographs taken by Japanese cameraman, Yoshiji Kizaki.
Mr. Kizaki is one of the few photographers who photographed not only the actual show in January 1973, but also the three Aloha performances and press conference held in November of the previous year.
At last, they will be reprinted from the original negatives and finally published as a gorgeous photo-book!
We have carefully rescanned all of Kizaki's amazing photographs and selected about 300 from them. Also includes contributions from people involved in the live satellite broadcast and record release. An in-depth look at how the concert of the century came to be.
Includes the treasured photos of the people involved, as well as newspaper and record company documentation from the time. A valuable and lasting record of Japan’s Aloha from Hawaii, we are proud to share it with the world.

・ Shigehiro Ushikubo (broadcast director and producer)
