It is a remarkable 'fairy' story in so many respects, sadly set in the wrong epoch. Much more could have been said; and yet there is much that need not be said. There is certainly a great deal 'between the lines'. Both the Prince (who spent some time studying in London and Oxford) and Princess had especially close links with England and the United States. When Japan entered the Second World War they both had to endure the unendurable: their mother country having declared war on their adopted countries. It was an appalling nightmare for them both. In the post-war years, the Princess made numerous trips to Europe in an attempt to rebuild old friendships. She was greatly loved and admired. There were no children

Kamakura: Fact and Legend has long been the definitive work on Kamakura.

"Separated from her family in the confusion and horror of World War II, seven-year-old Tomiko Higa struggles to survive on the battlefield of Okinawa, Japan.

Fleeing from encroaching enemy forces, searching desperately for her lost sisters, taking scraps of food from the knapsacks of dead soldiers, risking death at every turn, Tomiko somehow finds the strength and courage to survive."--Amazon.com
