Description The donor's father, Shizuo Tsuda (then, 57), was exposed at home with his wife Setsuyo (then, 55), and son Tatsuo. Shizuo was up on the roof removing roof tiles from his home slated for demolition. The family escaped to a relative's home nearby, but Shizuo died before the end of that year. The pot had been filled with pickled plums and buried under the house. Later, it was dug from the burnt ruins and served as an important source of nutrition during the scarcity after the war.
