Remembering Japan: 1945 – 1946: Chapter Ten: Japanese Hot Tub

From October 1945 to June 1946 my father, a Navy signalman, was stationed in JapanĀ  at Toriga-saki by the town of Kamoi, at the entrance to Tokyo Bay. He was then nineteen years old, a young Danish-American man from rural Oregon. The experience made a profound impression on him and he spoke of it often.


In Chapter Ten, the American sailors get a quiet lesson in how to bathe properly.
