Abstract:

The author, a retired officer of the United States Naval Intelligence, writes of his two visits to Japan, after World War II. Bred in the feeling that the Japanese were our enemies, he found Richi-San and her mammoth family a revelation. From him, they learned "English". From them, he learned that a great faith, sensitivity; and appreciation of kindness as well as beauty resides in these people. Richi-San, a thirty-seven-year-old widow who looked like a child, became the author's constant campaign. Together they climbed Mount Fuji, made excursions to the country, and together they set about the difficult task of teaching the eager Richi-San how to speak that language so foreign to her own.
