Catch up his new version of the pantomime!/Koyo Yamamoto

His familiar pantomime "Charlie Yamamoto" is upgraded every year and new performance "Ashika-chan" is debuting in Shizuoka.

Welcome to Pote's nongravity world!!/Pote

Wearing exotic clothes, Pote, whose hairstyle is like a pineapple
takes us to a nongravity world!

In his show, a crystal-clear stick goes up in the air,
and the silver hoops seem gravityless.
Also, his unique item named Bugen moves like a creature
and it looks so creepy. He smiled and said that
words like "creepy" is the best praise for him.

If he controls his favorite trick "contact balls",
it starts to spin around as if they are living.

"I want to perform without throwing things," he said.
He is may be a nongravity magician.
