The Japanese heritage
In the late summer of 1888, a boy named Tokuzo Akiyama was born in the Japanese town of Sabae. At the age of 16, after a sheltered childhood, he went to the nearby mountains of the province of Echizen, with the ambitious aim of becoming the highest monk in the monastery. Before he had already tried training as a Kendo teacher and for a short time as a soldier, but soon he became bored and wasted no time in giving up.
