An excellent film production day in Oiso, Japan

Excellent film production day in Oiso! Kazuhiro Sagawa of the Oiso Mayor’s office wrote an article about Katsu Goto in the town newsletter this past spring. That opened the doors for Sagawa to contact a living descendant of Goto from the Kobayakawa family. Goto was born Katsuzo Kobayakawa and had to be adopted into the Goto family in name only so he could leave Japan. It would have been illegal to emigrate as the eldest in his family. Interviewed Tetsu Kobayakawa, descendant of Kumejiro Kobayakawa, Katsu Goto’s brother! Also interviewed Dr. Yoshinori Kato for his academic expertise as an Oiso resident. More B roll filming too!
