dc.description The daughter of a Tenrikyo minister recalls her Shinmachi church and home, parents, and childhood activities. She describes her father's and family's separate World War II internment in Mainland camps and her father's subsequent death. She tells of returning to Shinmachi and being caught in the 1946 tidal wave, which hit her house. She also describes her mother's healing ministry. In the 1960 tsunami, now married, she, her husband, and daughter narrowly escaped from the water flooding their Kumu Street home. She talks of buying their new house, made possible by a low-interest loan to those who lost homes in the disaster. She closes with her appreciation of life and thoughts on parenting. en_US
