On February 12, at the house of Tetsunori Futenma in Kotia near Sao Paulo, Brazil, people related to Oshiro of the former Ozato Village (now Nanjo City) gathered for the first time in half a century. The gathering was the result of a call-out to immigrants and their descendants as part of work to compile an ethnohistory book of Ozato. Participants agreed to keep in touch with each other and cooperate.

Twenty-seven people participated. The Futenma Family, Arakaki Family, Oshiro Family, and Shiroma Family gathered and ate lunch together. Each family brought one dish of food. They enjoyed the food while deepening their friendships, and discussing each other’s family history.

They also prepared a birthday cake for Masaaki Shiroma, born in the year of the Rooster as a celebration of his birth year.
