This is my grandfather whom i've never had the opportunity of meeting. I have been drawn to Japan and visited cities near his grave site unaware I was so close. It is comforting to know where he is resting and that i will be there soon to visit him. Thank you for all that have helped to gather and post this information, myself and my family are very grateful for it.
