The Sakamoto family lives in a large furnished house. In addition to the family group lives a nephew of Mrs. Sam Sakamoto, Leo Nakayama, who is a student at Drake University. The entire family group formerly resided at San Jose, California, and relocated from Heart Mountain Relocation Center. Sam Sakamoto arrived in September 1943 and obtained employment with the Iowa Power and Light Co. as a bookkeeper. Mrs. Sakamoto, following in October, accepted a position as dietitian at the Friends Hostel. They made their home at the Hostel until spring, at which time they moved into a furnished apartment. In August, 1944, the Sakamotos brought their two children, Lois and Louise; and Mr. Sakamoto's parents, Tetsu and Tozo Sakamoto, and sister, Janet. The parents are not employed at the present time but take care of the household during the absence of Sam and Chiyo. Chiyo is employed at the Dauder Pharmacy in the clerical capacity and also as ice cream maker. Janet attends Washington Irving Junior High School. Lois and Louise are of pre-school age. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Des Moines, Iowa.
