Situation I left my aunt's house in Danbara to go to work at the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' factory in Kannon. As I arrived at the factory, there was a bright flash and I heard the sound of an explosion. I couldn't go into the factory air-raid shelter, so headed to my aunt's house in Danbara. I pushed my way against the waves of injured persons until finally having to spend the night on a hill in Koi. The city continued to burn the whole night through and I could not sleep even for a moment. The next day, I walked to my parents' home in Sagotani Village where I was reunited with my family.
