Description

To begin the interview, Uyeda speaks about how he learned the Japanese language, while living in a small town in Washington. The conversation jumps to the United States occupation in Japan following the war and first impressions of a Japan that had been devastated from the war. He talks about reactions of Japanese civilians to things such as Nisei soldiers, African American soldiers and democracy. Likewise, he explains his own reactions to seeing Japan from an American point of view and the similarities he saw between that time and the American civil war. Next, he speaks about the black market and how American soldiers weren't as innocent as many people thought.
