Thanks Peter -

It would be intriguing to contact/visit the various shrines where he was employed - I wonder what records remain.

Hello Ellis,

Well, I have looked at the website of Aizu-Wakamatsu, for example, and the city is clearly interested in its history. So, I suspect that a disinterested researcher who could handle the Japanese would be able to gain access to families with histories.

Similarly with Tanabe in 2008. I met quite a number of people, unconnected with the Aikikai, whose older relatives knew and remembered O Sensei.

Yet another retirement project...

Best wishes,
