Moriso Teraoka

On December 7th, Moriso notices two strange events. The trans-pacific seaplane China Clipper lands in Hilo Bay instead of Honolulu. A Navy patrol seaplane also lands in the bay.

On the radio, Moriso hears that Japan has bombed Pearl Harbor.

Later, Moriso’s brother Sakae, is discharged from the U.S. Army for being of Japanese ancestry, then relocated to Tule Lake Incarceration Camp for being a kibei (Japanese - American educated in Japan).
