After over two weeks at sea, we finally docked in Yokohama, Japan. Bob was there to greet us and we were all excited to see him once again. We went through all of the paperwork of the arrival and then went to a train station. We were headed to Southern Japan, not too far from Hiroshima.
The train trip was enlightening. As we traveled I looked out the window at the scenery. Many homes were made of rice paper held together with wooden posts. As we went through the country I saw what appeared to be stacks of hay. Bob told me that was where the Japanese had hidden weapons during the war. There was a lot of farm land, including rice fields.
There were a lot of Australian Military men on the train, and several of them took a liking to my sister Linda. Before long, she had an Australian military hat on her head and they'd bought her some candy.
Finally, we arrived in a small town called Nijimura, a suburb of Kure. This was to be our next home.
