Description

Ishizaki begins the interview with his outlook on the surrender of Japan. As he had previously volunteered for the Army, he was already in Manila, awaiting his shipment to Japan. Once arrived at Atsugi Air Base, he immediately noticed the flat devastation of the country. He would be assigned to a general, interpreting but mostly just relaxing. He again would notice the hardships going on throughout the country, especially those in need of food. He would also go and visit his family in Fukuoka and visit various parts of Japan with a famous actress. After this, he was assigned to inspect Piers for Japanese citizens looking for repatriation. Following this, he was sent back to Tokyo, where he would mostly have free time, hanging out in Shinjuku and traveling some more.
