On August 25, 2010, Ichiro Fujisaki, the Japanese ambassador, visited the Japantown in San Jose. He took a tour of the area and had a private lunch with community leaders. I grew up near there. The following is a picture taken from the trip.
The Japanese ambassador is in the center. The person on the far left looks a lot like my father. I was "led" to believe that the person was in fact my father. However, later on I asked my father if he ever met the Japanese ambassador and he said no. I think my government made me believe my father had met the Japanese ambassador in an attempt to discredit me later on.
