Description

After returning from Japan, Matsui would settle in Seattle, noticing the differences between American and Japanese community and culture. He would work as a houseboy for a caucasian family, earning $15 a month and working at the salmon cannery in Alaska during the summers. Next, he talks about taking three more years of high school before taking courses at the University of Washington. He also talks about his Buddhist background and the events that he would attend. At the time, he would keep tabs on the wars going on in Japan and have a bad feeling that they would attack the United States.
