Black and white silent amateur films, 1926-1933, of Japanese American communities in Los Angeles, Stockton, and Tacoma by Buddhist minister, Rev. Sensho Sasaki.

This segment, dated 1932, shows two of Rev. Sasaki's sons playing in the yard of the Tacoma Buddhist Church parsonage; the older son, in military cap and backpack, holds a wooden rifle and salutes; both children play military games with toy guns, and salute for the camera; the two boys pose in a car, and on their tricycles, raising their arms in the traditional salute of "Banzai!" ("Ten thousand years"); a title card reads "Sayonara" ("Goodbye") (02:27).

Credits: Rev. Sensho Sasaki Collection, Gift of the Sasaki Family, Japanese American National Museum (96.150). Preserved and made accessible in part by a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
