Morihiro Saito portrait: “Decked out in a beautiful formal kimono before the Aiki Shrine”

This is a heads-up for any of you who would like to download a high-resolution file of one of the most beautiful and famous portraits of Morihiro Saito, 9th dan. We’ll be launching this product tomorrow. It will be priced at $3.99.

“This is one of the finest of the surviving portraits of Morihiro Saito Sensei. It was taken by Stanley Pranin on May 4, 1996 in front of the Aiki Shrine in Iwama. The occasion was the celebration of Saito Sensei’s 50 years in aikido. Many aikido dignitaries from all over Japan and foreign students attended, including present Doshu Moriteru Ueshiba. This photo was taken with a Minolta medium-format camera and is of extremely high-resolution.”

One of the nice things about these high-resolution downloadable files is that you save a ton of money not having to pay for shipping, not to mention the much lower cost. You can then resize the file for local printing as you like. It’s great for both dojo and personal use. We’ll have many more beautiful historical photos for you in the near future.

If you can’t wait until then, check it out here.
