Sojin Kamiyama, one of the key figures in the creation of the modern Japanese theatre, was a friend of Junichiro Tanizaki throughout his lifetime. He is also known as one of the few Japanese actors who performed in Hollywood silent films in the 1920s. However, his life has not been sufficiently studied ; his fellowship with Junichiro Tanizaki has not been fully investigated either. This paper presents his personal history based on various data, information and interviews with members of his family.
