Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community


This packing trunk belonged to the Henry Takayoshi family and was used at the Minidoka “Relocation” Center. After time friends were able to ship or bring items to prisoners from back home. The Takayoshis also used this trunk as they traveled from Minidoka to Renton, WA where they settled after the war.
