His grandfather was KMT leader Tsuyoshi INUKAI, who was assassinated 10 years later in the 515 Incident.

“I’m going to say good-bye to you because you loved me so much. Thank you.”
My father’s tearful voice rang close to my ears, but very far away. Tears suddenly pushed me down my throat and my ears started ringing. I stretched out my hand, shivering, and, to my surprise, stroked my grandfather’s unusually stiff cheek. I called it while stroking “Grandpa!” I called it while choking. I choked and rubbed. His cheeks seemed to cool as he did so.
Michiko cried, insisting that she would never leave Tsuyoshi INUKAI’s body, and lay beside the cabinet ministers who gathered at the prime minister’s official residence. Around 4 o’clock in the morning, just before the warmth of the deceased passed away, Michiko slipped out and “Ame no Sho”, but she remembered that it was said that it was visible to her close friends, so she took off the white cloth, rolled up the futon, and touched the dead body from the cheek to the feet.
Later, Michiko studied at Gakushuin Girls’ School and Tsuda Eigaku Juku, and then went to the United States and France to study. I studied Bible studies. 1957 NHK news commentator. His representative work is ‘travel the Bible’. He died in 2017 at the age of 96.
