He would also enjoy recreational activities such as obon, youth groups and celebrating New Years. After this, he speaks more about his education and the impactful teachers that helped him along the way. He would go to high school for a short time but wouldn't be able to go to the graduation because of the curfew after Pearl Harbor.
