My Dear Himiko
Yesterday we sailed past the coast of Okinawa
I did not see Nago,but I felt at home anyway,
as it is the closet I have been to you for the past two years.
Mount Yanaha was standing in the clears sky,
and it felt as it was you,gazing down on me from our home island.
I won't be able to write for a long time now
so I am counting on you to stay safe.
Don't let lady Kuno raise the rent again,
and go to my mother's if the American soldiers land here.
Also do not fear for the house,
as it is only made of wood and stone;
you are the true home of our family.
To yui,when she is old enough to understand,
please read these words：
Even though you cannot see me,
I will always be watching you.
Obey your mother,and help her with her work.
Grow up to be a fine woman,
and choose a path that brings you happiness.
Do not envy other children for having a father,
as I will be a spirit,and always be with you.
this was my last letter
and I am now leaving for my last duty.
Before my last breath,I will allow myself to end a life of obedience with a selfish act,
as I will not sacrifice myself to save the Empire,
