Rafu Bussan Inc. Little Tokyo


Skip and Aiko 25 Years Together

After having married in 1953 after meeting in Japan, Skip and Aiko came to the United States to take over the Rafu Bussan Inc. business. With a shared vision for the store and for each other, in 1983, it was the mark of their 30th anniversary. Husband Skip (right) and wife Aiko (left) look striking in their lovely clothing, Aiko adorning a traditional kimono. In this year, Rafu Bussan was entering its 25th anniversary.
