Description

Takusagawa continues his discussion on growing up in Santa Barbara, including the impactful people that he grew up with, helping him to become a more rounded person. Eventually, this guided him to joining the school band, playing the snare drum, which led him to a very special 21 day trip to Washington DC. Following high school, Takusagawa began to figure out a career path, most likely taking over the dry cleaning business after the passing of his father, however, the attacks on Pearl Harbor occurred. As Executive Order 9066 was posted, the early relationships with neighborhood friends worked in his favor, as his family was able to store their furniture in their homes. Next, he and his family headed to Tulare Temporary Detention Center, where conditions were crude and his family was forced to live in a horse stall.
