Enjoying undokai and sports in Crystal City

Memories of childhood in Peru Forcibly deported to the U.S. from Peru Food on the ship to the U.S. Family welcomed at Crystal City First meal at Crystal City Enjoying undokai and sports in Crystal City Postwar sponsorship Immersed in Japanese culture and language Proud of his Japanese, American, and Peruvian identity


While we were there, there were all kinds of events. One that I really enjoyed was, in Japanese, they call it undokai, where all the classes, all the students participate. Third grade would compete with another third grade, with another class, and so on. And running, especially, and if you win, they would give you a pamphlet, they would give you a paper, they would give you a pencil, eraser, that was our prize. But that was very enjoyable, just competing with another.
