This chapter reports the narratives of Mr. Shibagaki Yūrokurō and Mrs. Shibagaki Yoshie. Mr. and Mrs. Shibagaki were the parents of Mr. Shibagaki Mitsuo. The three of them together were interviewed, with their son's wife, Mrs. Shibagaki Kimie, present. The senior Mr. Shibagaki died in 1987 and his wife died in 2000. Mitsuo's parents first started dealing with obi and other products as merchants. The government recruited gunzoku for military purposes through the Employment Security Office. Kimie said that life in Nishijin has gotten better through the creation of unions and the Fair Labor Standards Act. Mitsuo stated that the standard of labor is still below the average in Nishijin.
