The Nakatomi Trading Corporation is the $2.5 billion financial company who's US headquarters was taken over and ultimately very much destroyed by a group of international terrorists in the original Die-Hard movie. If you didn't make it to the gift shop before Nakatomi Plaza was blown up, this shirt will help ease your pain, not to mention how cool it will make you look. Yippee ki-yay ...!

Joseph "Joe" Yoshinobu Takagi was the President of Nakatomi Trading, until the unfortunate incident at Nakatomi Plaza on Christmas Eve, 1988. Born in Kyoto, Japan on 1937, his family emigrated to San Pedro, California in 1939. During World War II, Takagi was interned at Manzanar from 1942 to 1943. Still, he earned a scholarship to the University of California, Berkeley, enrolling in 1955. He also earned a law degree from Stanford in 1962 and an MBA from Harvard in 1970. Eventually, Takagi became President of Nakatomi Trading and Vice Chairman of the Nakatomi Investment Group. Takagi was married and had five children. Joe continues to be missed by his family at Nakatomi, years after his passing.
