Kunihiko Nanbu and his wife waving
Caption on reverse [translation]: "Mr. & Mrs. Kunihiko Nanbu return home. Nanbu, who worked with Sojin Kamiyama in the movie 'Thief of Baghdad,' returned home with his loving wife Takane, who is known as 'Madam Butterfly' at the Philadelphia Grand Opera, by the ship Wilson, which left Honolulu on the 28th. They returned home after an interval of ten years. Nanbu has not acted since 'Thief of Baghdad,' but Mrs. Takane is known as a most popular dramatic soprano. After the disaster occurred she joined the Tensho team and went to America. During her training she married Nanbu, but she kept training under; however, she appeared at the Philadelphia Grand Opera as a result of her efforts. She received much applause for her performances, especially 'Butterfly.' She was good in Oriental plays.
The photo is Mr. & Mrs. Nanbu, who landed at Yokohama today."
