Group photo of members of the Jodo Mission of Wainaku, including its judo club. The Jodo Mission also sponsored a Japanese language school. Moriso Teraoka, whose family was active in the church, is the fifth from left in the row behind the judo club members, wearing a printed shirt.
He recalls the occasion as honoring Kitagawa Sensei who was leaving on the last ship bound for Japan in 1941. Kitagawa Sensei is in the center of the photograph, in the second row, wearing a judo outfit and seated between the two men in black suits.
