Description

Yenokida talks about his family background. Both his mother and father came from Fukuoka and started a farm in California, where they would grow various crops. While going to school in Ballico, Yenokida would often get into mischief, sometimes skipping school to hang out elsewhere. Next, he talks about his siblings, being very close to his eldest brother, almost like a second father. Growing up a buddhist family, his family would celebrate bon odori and New Years each year, cooking Japanese food and enjoying the festivities.
