Shin Togashi (冨樫森, Togashi Shin) is a Japanese film director.

Career[edit]

Born in Fujishima, Yamagata (now part of the city of Tsuruoka), Togashi attended Rikkyō University, where he was inspired by the lectures on cinema by the critic Shigehiko Hasumi.[1] After graduating, he worked as an assistant director for pink films until he got the chance to work with his hero, the director Shinji Sōmai.[1] Assisting on such films as Typhoon Club (1984), he got his first chance to direct a section of the omnibus film Kawaii hito (1998), which was supervised by Sōmai.[1] That helped him make his feature film debut with Off-Balance.

He won the award for best New Director at the 23rd Yokohama Film Festival.[2]
