I didn't get the chance to attend school at the time, even though I was eight. Uprising against the Peruvian Japanese, animosity against Peruvian Japanese. It was so dangerous for me to go to school. I'm sure the family's business, everybody worked. I remember there must have been about four to six people every day ironing. There was a kitchen that my, one of the nanny would cook, and on weekends, she would make barazushi, Japanese sushi, all the rice and all the ingredients mixed up. And then she would go home for the weekend.
