In Japan it was the custom that well-brought-up Japanese girls didn t speak to strangers, & especially not to foreigners. But there are exceptions to every rule, & when a young American Air Force officer on a crowded Tokyo train is clearly lost -- & not so clearly asking for help -- Yoshiko s heart softens in a way that will change her life forever. In sharing her family history, Mimi Otey Little tells the story of two young people from opposite sides of the world who bridge their differences to form a long & lasting friendship & bring their two worlds closer together. Her beautiful color pictures illustrate the story & depict authentic clothing & customs.
