Hashiguchi Collection

L to R: Mitsuko Hashiguchi's aunt Makijan, sister Shizue, niece Jean, and sister Yoshie. The purpose of this trip was to visit Mitsuko's two sisters who were born in Japan and left there when their mother and father came to the U.S. They lived with their grandmother in Japan, were going to be educated in Japan and brought to the U.S., but then no longer wanted to come when they got older.

June 1966
