Takashi Tanemori was 8 yrs old, in Hiroshima when the Atomic Bomb fell one mile away. The blast killed his parents, brother, sister & other family members. Takashi became a street urchin, eating out of garbage cans.
Takashi vowed vengeance but devoted himself to peace. "My father taught me to be of service to others which is a central Samurai teaching." Takashi lives with guide dog 'Yuki'.
