The Chunichi Dragons announced today that they re-signed Kenshin Kawakami (38).  They posted the following statement from Kawakami:

It is a little embarrassing, but I am back with the Dragons.  GM Hiromitsu Ochiai and manager Motonobu Tanishige contacted me and I re-signed.  It was just a short while ago, and then two years ago that I had a press conference like this.  It feels a bit strange.  I never thought I would return to the Dragons, never imagined it.  GM Ochiai told me he was glad that I returned and that really made me happy, more than anything else.  I do not want to get a late start at spring camp and will do my best to make sure I am prepared to compete for a starting job.  Next year, I want to find a spot in the starting rotation and stay there the entire year.  If I can do that, I will be fully satisified.
