Fourth Interview

9 Sep

I just did an interview with Jerry Yellin.

He was a fighter pilot in World War 2 and fought against Japan.

The interview is here.

The pure purpose of war, in my opinion, is to kill

I just did my third interview.

It’s with Ken Alley who has over a thousand letters from a woman named Elizabeth Ryan while she was in Japan right after WW2.

Just a few things…

25 Jul

Just a few random items…

  • My second daughter will return home this evening from her 林間学校 (field trip) to 新潟 (Niigata). 🙂
  • A couple days ago, there was another big 地震 (earthquake) in 岩手県 (Iwate Prefecture)…the same area that had a big earthquake last month (you can read my post about that earthquake here).
  • A few more people have agreed to do interviews for my site. I’ll post them as soon as I get their responses to my questions.
  • Did you notice that anytime you see 漢字 (Japanese kanji characters) on my site, if you hover your mouse over it, the ふりがな (kana characters that show the proper reading of kanji) appears? Does this help you?
  • What are you favorite places, events, things to do in the Tokyo area? Just wondering.
