Sometimes to be a superhero, all you need is a mask.

Every two months, 44-year-old Japanese businessman Akihiro Tomikawa makes the trip to the slums of Bangkok, Thailand, to distribute toys to underprivileged children. He dresses as Kamen Rider #1, from the tokusatsu television series that ran in the 1970s. An original manga adaptation of Kamen Rider also ran at the same time, both created by legendary manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori (Cyborg 009).
