Mourners pay tribute to singer Hideki Saijo

Mourners have paid tribute to the Japanese singer Hideki Saijo, who died earlier this month at the age of 63.

Saijo won a huge following for his energetic singing style. He suffered a stroke in 2003 and another one in 2011, but worked hard on his rehabilitation and continued to perform on stage.

The funeral service held in Tokyo on Saturday was crowded with mourners, including fellow singers who were close to the artist.

Fans offered flowers at a special table, while the altar was arranged to represent the baseball stadium where he played one of his most famous concerts.
