Tenyo's Tomoyuki Shimomura has a new effect out called 'Insta Prediction'. You can find it at Seo Magic. As far as I know, Tenyo has exclusive contracts on their people. This would mean Mr. Shimomura san has retired from Tenyo. I also believe that the mandatory retirement age in Japan is 60. I'm hoping that Richard can shed some light on this post.

Shimomura retired from Tenyo years ago to take over his family business.

Thanks for the clarification Richard. I must say, it is great seeing Shimomura san creating again. He sure has invented some masterpieces over the years.

'Insta Prediction' looks like a modern adaption/spin-off of the diary trick principle.

Gimme an N! Gimme an I! Gimme an C! Gimme an O! Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink.

Totally concur Nico. I see Shimomura as Tenyo's 2nd wave of inventors after Sugawara, Kondo & Kato. His Mystery China Box & Eye of the Idol impressed me from the T series. Of his 5 +1 items, I'd give it to Mind Roulette. Your favs from him? Did you get anywhere on the fabrication?

Glenn, you really liked Mystery China Box and Eye of the Idol the most? What a most flamboyant taste! Who would I be to disagree then?

Apart from these obvious ones, let me add three more which I always kind liked:

- "Lucky Rabbit" for its innocent yet devious little mechanism
- "Unusual Suspects" for molding a basic method into a beautiful and entertaining story line
- „Bird Watcher“ for the fascinating mathematical principle and the kicker finale.

"Bird Watcher" is Shimomura's favorite trick that he created for Tenyo.

Richard, thanks for the inside track info.

Felix, I'd pick 'Magician's Matchbox' for the same reasons you picked 'Unusual Suspects'. It has been a pleasure listing & debating the crowning achievements of Shimomura's remarkable career.
