Saito (Ken Watanabe) is a Japanese CEO of a energy company who hires Dom Cobb and his team to incept his business rival Robert Fischer to break up his company in exchange for reuniting Cobb with his family. We first see him as Cobb and Arthur are trying to get hired to militarised his subconscious - it turns out they are actually trying to extract his business secrets from him in a two layer dream. Saito realised this in the lower level when Cobb's vengeful projection of his dead wife Mal tell him, and in the top layer when the carpet his mistress's apartment is polyester not wool.

He enters Fischer's mind with the team as a tourist - although employers don't usually do this, Saito is an experienced dreamer seen racing motorcycles in a Japanese dream den in The Cobol Job prequel comic.

Fandom

This article or section needs expansion.

In fandom Saito is most often paired with Cobb, Fischer or Arthur, although such fanworks are uncommon. He sometimes hires the team to do more jobs, or functions as a benevolent sponsor, buying them things they need -- such as a hospital when Ariadne is hurt [needs ref]; this is inspired by his apparently endlessly deep pockets in the film, buying a whole airline for the Fischer job.
