Description
Full title:Phyllis Okubo, age 2, and Joan Okubo, age 4, daughters of Rokuro and Ayako Okubo, are shown playing on the several acre landscaped grounds of the estate-type farm where their father is employed. Mr. Okubo is in charge of the actual farming of this 120-acre farm, mostly planted in corn and soy beans. The family occupies an attractive house on the grounds and the children are making the most of the sunshine in their enormous yard, which includes among other attractive features a private swimming pool. Mrs. Okubo is busy with her children, including Virginia, age 8, and with her own housework. The family reports that it is well pleased with its new home. They came to the farm near Palantine, Illinois, from Granada Relocation Center early in 1944 and prior to that had lived in Los Angeles for many years. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Palatine, Illinois.
