Junzo Nojima and Stamford's Cherry Trees: A Kamishibai Presentation
Junzo's restaurant is reopened
After the end of the war, business at the restaurant gradually recovered and many customers returned. At that time, people even went so far as to say, "The town becomes a ghost town when the restaurant is closed". About twelve employees worked three shifts from 6 A.M. to 12 P.M.. But there were night workers at the post office next door, and also there were some people who came in by the back door because the front door was closed, and sat at the counter. So we didn't have time to eat meals. The business went well, and Junzo became familiar with the neighbors and customers who called him by the nickname "Junior".
