Yosh’s three daughters have either married non-Japanese or have never married. It doesn’t matter to him.

However, he mentioned that growing up he strove to speak good English and to fit in. He never took Japanese food to school.

I always took sandwiches. We had to make our own lunch. Nobody made it for you. It was always bread.

His friends growing up were nearly all hakujin. Then when he was older, he had both nisei and white friends.

He and his siblings all married other nisei.
