Description

Nishibayashi continues his recollection of his language training at Presidio and his thoughts about what to expect in an occupation. While shipping to Yokohama, he would enjoy a furlough in Hawaii before getting into Japan to begin his time there. When arriving, he would head first to Camp Zama and notice the Japanese civilians buying cigarettes from the soldiers right out of the train. He would arrive in Tokyo and begin to explore, even making friendships with civilians. After about a month, he would get his first assignment in Sendai, translating for the Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC). He would work there for over five years, translating documents and other occupational assignments, until he began another stint, which he is unable to speak about. He would revisit Sendai later, and would also end up meeting his wife there.
