“August 5 Sunday, Sunny
Got up at 5:00 a.m., Went to bed at 9:30 p.m.
Learning time: 3 h. 50 min., Today’s chores: Washing, heating the bath, cleaning up to help my mother and grandmother, and clearing the table
I got up very late this morning. Since there was no school today, I leisurely cooked rice and enjoyed it with my family. Thinking about my mother, I worried about her.”

Her father Takashi cherished this diary for a long time.
