For the people who immigrated in the US before World War II, the situation must have been even more complicated. Teijiro thought that he could never be able to come back to US once returned back to Japan partly due to war, even either side wins. He would not be admitted to reenter into US because he was an illegal immigrant. He must have driven crazy from thinking all about this. But he decided to go back to Japan. Upon his decision, he did what most of Japanese would never have done. He asked all the members of his family including his 3 daughters if they hoped to stay in US or go back to Japan with him.
As a result, 2 older daughters decided to stay in US. Teijiro, his wife, and young Fujie had gone back to Japan. This interested me a lot. If Teijiro, as majority of Japanese house hold husbands, has asked, or ordered entire family to go back to Japan, they would have. And, then there might not have been a way for Fujie to return back to US.
Picture: Japan Town, San Francisco. Street Names are written both in English and Japanese. I do not know other place like this in US.
