Yes! It is in Yokosuka or at least I think, I was 6 years-old when I lived in that area. I remember near my school bus stop, there was a cemetary...I do not think in all these years they would have moved that for progress; but I could be wrong...Figured if I could locate that general area, I could find my old neighborhood and the house of the dear Japanese family we knew.

Hello Kaoru 2007/11/28 16:07
You asked me if I went to "Dolphin" restaurant near Negishi Fire Station. I think I remember seeing it, but never went there to eat. Also, I wanted to tell you I visited your blog site and learned something I find interesting. We share the birthday, but different year. (Mine is 1956.)

Have you tried google earth you might find it. It took me a white but I did find my old apartment building. Expect some changes. Look for things that would not change like a tunnel bridge or your cemetary. Good luck

found more pictures of Yokohama 2007/11/30 02:40
I found images of the Navy exchange at this location:

If you look around this site there are many many pictures of 1950's & 1960's Yokohama. I am not sure if those have seen these before but it seemed to fit in the intent of this group.

Thanks

Wow, Thank you so much.

They are a very nostalgic locations for me. My dad died two years ago. If he saw these pics, tears might surely have been
dropped.

Regards,

Karou. With the many pages and pages of postings here I am suprised these have not come to light before? I am glad you enjoyed them and I am sorry your Dad is still not here to see them.

Thank you again 2007/11/30 04:07
John;

My Dad had worked for about 20 years in the Yamate police station. He proceeded to US naval forces SP headquarters for one year. Afterwards, Dad was promoted to the police sergeant and worked in the Isezaki. And, he worked and retired from the head in the Seya police station.

My family name is Sase. This is a little unusual family name.

Kaoru Sase

Kaoru, The family may be Erice Davis, who posts on this forum. I read somewhere of a police offficer and a jeep is this your father? I also read that it might have been Eric san who rode in a jeep with your father. Hope you are OK.

Thank you.

I memorize their family names as Edinburgh. However, it is not certain. Is it said to the family name in US?

The policeman of the picture was a partner of my dad.

Hadembarg?? 2007/12/1 11:26
Peter san

Arigatou gozaimasu.

Their family names might possibly be Hadembarg.

Is the family name correct?
They gave me a lot of toys.

yokohama family 2007/12/1 11:49
Kaoru . The Name Hadembarg is not a family name. At least it is not a name that I have ever known or is listed as a family name . Your last name Sase. Is that like Sasebo ? My Last Name is Saunders. 3 Dozen. .. san 3, Doz 12 . At least that is what I was told but I do not think that traditional Japanese counting is in units of 12. More like units of 5. Is this correct? Anyway I like my Japanese name. They used to call me peter-san..ders.

Sasebo 2007/12/2 08:40
Peter san

Sa of Sasebo is the same as my family name. However, Se is a differen. Se of my name
is a meaning of "shallow".

Or, I think that it is a meaning of the brooklet.

clarification. 2007/12/2 12:59
Kaoru.. Thank you I understand better. Is BROOKLET like a small brook [river] or book [hon des] a booklet is a small book. Hope you are well. Peter
