Description

Takashima begins the interview discussing his family background, including how they became farmers in Chula Vista, California. He talks about various parts of his childhood from the small home he grew up in to the celebrations and values that his family shared. He would also attend school in Chula Vista and attend the Buddhist temple when his parents had extra time. As his siblings were sent to Japan at a young age, he was able to go with his mother to visit them as well. After graduating from high school, Takashima would enter junior college before being drafted into the Army, shortly after Pearl Harbor. While he attended basic training at Camp Robinson, his parents were taken into custody by the FBI and others were taken to the American concentration camps at Poston, Arizona.
