Bob Izumi, A Canadian Pioneer in Fishing

TORONTO — As Canada celebrates National Fishing Week in July, a name that has become synonymous with the pastime is Bob Izumi.

Born in Chatham and raised by a single father in Blenheim, Izumi credits his father as the driving influence in life. His love of fishing was fostered by his father, Joe, who often took him, his three siblings and neighbourhood kids fishing.

“He worked several jobs at once to keep the family afloat,” Izumi tells Nikkei Voice in an interview. “He worked seven days a week and any days off he would spend with the family and …

ブラジル移民珍商売

この話は僕がブラジルからカナダへ移住した際に、2008年のブラジル移民百周年を記念して、リオデジャネイロで殊の外お世話になった真木昌(まき・さかえ)先生の偉業を トロントの『大陸時報』に 書いたもので、再度こちらで紹介したいと思います。

戦後の打ちひしがれていた日本人に夢と希望をもたらしたのは「富士山の飛び魚」と称えられた古橋、橋爪、真木、浜口の日大水泳チームが樹立した八百メートルリレー世界新記録でした。1950年3月にブラジルに遠征した日大水泳部がブラジルの日系人に大歓迎を受けたのは言うまでもありません。

ブラジルが気に入った最年長の真木昌さんは、ブラジル水泳界の要請に応じブラジルに移住されまし…

ボルガ河畔の想い出

今年85歳の僕は半世紀を超えるブラジル、アメリカ、カナダでの移民生活には数多くの想い出があります。中でも最も心に残る生涯の想い出は、80歳の時にロシア連邦タタールスタン共和国の首都カザニでの水泳マスターズ世界選手権大会の表彰台に立った瞬間の達成感でした。日本での水泳競技会では地方大会予選落ちが殆どで、全国大会には2回出場しただけの3流選手の僕が、オリンピックメダリストに勝って世界選手権大会の表彰台に立てるとは夢の様でした。

小学校では野球選手で、巨人のキャッチャーの藤尾が3番打者、ファーストの僕が4番、阪急でホームラン王になった中田が5番のクリーンナップトリオで阪神間では強豪チームでした。ところが、中学1年の時に学校で…

Exceeding All Expectations

Keston Hiura has made a habit of breaking barriers and smashing stereotypes on his way to major league success.

Most sports fans understand that the challenges for any young man or woman to achieve a career in professional sports are numerous and often unforgiving. But some of the toughest hurdles are the perceptions or misperceptions that certain scouts may hold involving a prospect’s size, character, background or even ethnicity.

Keston Hiura heard that he had a perceived weakness that had nothing to do with his baseball abilities, but instead focused on his overall priorities: the fact that he intended to …

少年野球チーム「バンクーバー新朝日」の彦根遠征観戦記

2019年3月20日午後4時、私はJR彦根駅前のホテルコンフォートの前のベンチに座り、横浜から来るバスを待っていた。定刻通リに2台のバスが到着し、少年野球チーム「バンクーバー新朝日」チームの元気な若者とその両親たちがにこやかな笑顔と共に元気そうに降りて来た。ジョン・ウォン(John Wong)さん、トミオ・フクムラ(Tomio Fukumura)さん他遠征チームの役員の皆様と挨拶&握手で出迎えた。

「Welcome to Hikone! お疲れ様です」 

これより新朝日一行55名は、約一週間彦根に滞在し、滋賀県のチームと親善試合や観光親善活動を行うのである。
