Abstract:

Those in Japan have a saying, 'A brother is the beginning of a stranger,' because on the father's death the oldest brother acquires such absolute authority as the head of the family that the younger ones and he cannot easily be friends. After the author's father died, his eldest brother assumed the dictatorial authority of father, as sanctioned by Japanese law and custom. The author wanted to live his own life, and did, but it was necessary to fight for it against the old Japanese tradition that superiors must benevolently govern their inferiors, and inferiors gratefully obey. These experiences led to both bitter sorrows and bursting joys. May the young people of a new Japan obtain the happiness of the author and his wife without the struggle they have been through.
