Hiroshi Sawa

Cover of Genii (1977)

Dr. Hiroshi Sawa, a dentist, is one of Japan's most prolific magicians.[1]


Dai Vernon in the Vernon Touch on Genii 1969 September said "They love magic in Japan. The people are analytical, observant, and they're very hard to fool. That's why the magicians there are so good. They had to develop themselves to a point where they could fool the audience. [...] The first time I was really flabbergasted was in Osaka when I met this young dentist named Hirosi Sawa." And then on Genii 1971 March, "I didn't see my friend, Hiroshi Sawa [while in Japan], whom I consider to be one of the most original magicians in the world. I say this with the utmost sincerity."
