“Cherry Blossoms in the Storm”

Novel  (Robert and Gail Kaku)

A historical novel about three Japanese American brothers during WWII and how their Christian faith provided them strength. The three brothers find their lives turned upside down when they are caught in the cataclysm of war. Eldest brother Akira Omura is stranded in Japan and forced to fight against the country of his birth. In America, wartime hysteria sends younger brothers Tad and Danny to internment camps. They traverse oceans and even wider chasms of prejudice, hatred, and separation from loved ones, risking their lives to seek freedom and hope for the future.

Movie (Craig Shimahara)

The tale is a simple one on both levels.  A child of Christian missionaries, Madison has rejected his faith and placed his hope in the world of commerce. A brash young architect, Madison is on the verge of breaking through when he is laid off from his work. Entering into a month of depression he is confronted with the two directions his life journey can now take, a life with or without God. His wife played by Kaho Minami presents his life with God and his wife’s mother played by Okiko Saito presents the life without God.  At the same moment, within the mirrored battle depicted in the spiritual world, Madison’s rōnin meets the Dark Lord who wants to become his master. Sensing deeply that he does not want to join with darkness and reject God, Madison begins to study Scripture while his rōnin receives a special sword from a mysterious older teacher. This symbolic receipt of a sword allows us to see visually the spiritual battle that the truth of scripture is on his journey toward faith in God.

“Quiet Heroes”

History Book  (Rev. Tsukasa Sugimura)

American Quakers are viewed by the Japanese and Japanese-Americans as “quiet heroes” for their selfless acts of humanitarian assistance and resistance to racism throughout the 20th Century. Whether in response to the devastation of earthquakes or the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or in response to the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, members of the Society of Friends (Quakers) perceived their Japanese and Japanese-American neighbors as fellow humans, worthy of respect and humanitarian assistance. Reverend Tsukasa Sugimura pays tribute to the work of the Quakers as he documents this important history.
