Nishinaka Family – 1913

After living in Seattle and working in Bellevue in the lumber business, Tomokichi decided to move his family to Bainbridge Island to begin farming. He and Tomie eventually had four more daughters. In 1913 the entire Nishinaka family was reunited in Japan on a short family visit.
