Our travel group disbanded after our tour of Hiroshima, but my wife and I stayed in Hiroshima for a few more days to visit some of the sites and my father's grave.

My grandfather and grandmother (newlyweds) moved to Hawaii in 1894, and started to have a rather large family.  Unfortunately, many died at birth or during infancy.   The six that survived eventually married and had families.   When my father and two uncles were teenagers, they took a ship from Hawaii to California to seek work.  My father was born in Maui.   My father passed away when I was two years old, and my uncle took his ashes back to Japan in 1938 to be interred at the family grave in Hiroshima proper.
