Caption on reverse [translation]: "Reverend Reikai Nozaki, who resided at the Jodo mission in Hawaii for a couple years, came to Hawaii on his way home with his wife, Shizuyo, and son, Reijun, and visited our company led by [?] of Haleiwa Jodo and talked with the press. He will stay until the Asama Maru arrives and attend event meetings at the [?] Jodo. Nozaki left his country behind in 1926 for the U.S., and he moved from Chicago to Los Angeles and established the first Jodo mission in North America on the East Side of the city. He is now the supervisor of the Jodo mission in Los Angeles and also manages the attached business, the Meisho School. He said Honolulu has changed a lot from 13 years ago. He leaves September 11th from Honolulu to Japan and China for a grand tour, and he will also attend [?] this fall as an ambassador of the Pasadena Japanese Association. (The photo is Mr. Nozaki, his wife and son.)"
