I am looking for relatives in Japan. I think they were from Kobe. Their last name is Sakamoto (not sure on spelling). Two brothers named At At the approx. age of 16, Henry and Harry Sakamoto (might of been twins) moved to Hawaii in the early 1900's from Kobe (could be wrong about location). After a few years, my great grandfather moved to Alaska (Harry) where he married my great grandmother in Juneau and worked in the gold mines. My grandmother (Harry's daughter) visited her relatives in Tokyo when she was nineteen but cannot remember names, etc...
She met in the Toyko airport for about 6 hours with her mother in law (think her name was Cheyoko) and her sister-in-law (Alice?) and other relatives. The other brother (Henry) stayed in Hawaii and married a Japanese American woman. I would love to locate any relatives in Japan or Hawaii.
