Kamikawa Takaya will be starring in the new TV Tokyo Spring 2018 drama "Shitsuji Saionji no Meisuiri" (Butler Saionji's Famous Reasoning) which will begin its run from April in the Fridays 8pm timeslot. This will be Kamikawa's first leading role in a TV Tokyo drama and his first as a butler. He plays the lead character Saionji Hajime who works as a butler for the rich widow of an entrepreneur named Ijuuin and solves murder cases at the same time with his reasoning powers, wealth of knowledge, sharp observation and ability to assess the situation quickly.

As the drama is an original story, Kamikawa said that there is a lot of room for them to explore various elements to make this story and his character more engaging. He would also have to learn from scratch how to behave like a butler who excels in everything.
