No.

He was giving a long (maybe 1h30m+) speech to a hall full of young Nintendo applicants, of which I was one. It covered Nintendo's history, Nintendo's future, Nintendo's corporate philosophy, and so on. I was expecting some nobody from HR to be giving the talk, so I had a bit of a nerdgasm when he appeared on stage.

I wanted to at least shake his hand or something, but as soon as his presentation was over, he walked off stage through some door, never to be heard from again.

What about Miyamoto?

What. I thought I saw him in Shinjuku today but I thought "Nah, Iwata lives in Kyoto." Where did you see him? What was he talking about?

Miyamoto wasn't there, but part of Iwata's presentation was about what a worldwide figure he has become, and how he was recently given some great honor in Spain.

Nintendo's head office is in Kyoto, but they do recruitment in Tokyo (and Osaka, I think). The session was held in Shibuya, but that's not so far from Shinjuku, so it may well have been him who you saw.
