Description

Tsuda begins the interview with a brief introduction of himself and his parents. After this, he talks about what it was like to grow up in Honolulu, living in Haleiwa on a pineapple cannery. He would enjoy attending Japanese language school and would have a heavy influence of Japanese culture throughout his childhood. He would also take part in fishing and judo but would be limited in his recreational time as he had to drop out of high school and begin working as a contractor when his brother was drafted into the Army. Next, he talks about the attacks on Pearl Harbor and being put on a heavy restriction by his work.
