Not to minimize the impact on Kisshomaru (who was there the whole time), but Morihei left for Iwama two years before the firebombing really started, and lived out most of the war there in peace and quiet. He even avoided all the wartime and post-war food shortages and rationing.


Yes, that was a neat tenkan, but I assume that the horror stories from Tokyo travelled freely to Iwama and elsewhere.
