Chapter Summary

The author and his two companions spent about seven years after the US invasion endlessly wandering in the jungle, with great difficulty, to search for a secure place to live. They were on the run and kept wandering from one place to another. They were eventually tired of such a nomadic life. From around April 1950, they selected a suitable place and dug a hole horizontally from foxtail grassland above the riverside reed marshland, deeper into the hill. This hole only narrowly accommodated the three of us. When they made a fire inside on which to cook, the intense heat was hardly bearable. From around April 1950, they selected a suitable place and dug a hole horizontally from the foxtail grassland above the riverside reed marshland, deeper into the hill. It was also not easy to live in the hole. They had become lost in the middle of nowhere.

Keywords: breadfruit season; foxtail grassland; Nakahata; reed marshland
