April 23, 1944 (Sunday)

Mass, confession and communion at St. Theresa’s.

Our picnic scheduled today was canceled due to the sudden rain. We intended to take our lunch under cherry trees as is the custom in Japan during cherry blossom time.

Picture-taking. This p.m. with Cruz and Sison made a few snapshots at Ueno Park with cherry blossoms as background. Had my solo picture taken at a downtown studio. I have my hair parted now, but soon will cut it again to comply with regulations. My moustache, too, which was quite long, I have already shaved off.
