June 9, 1944 (Friday)

Stayed in bed the whole day today, with severe pains in my back, the effect of judo and of the other day’s double-time.

Fire. Fire broke out a few hundred meters from our dormitory, and from the rooftop we could see the huge flames devouring the house. (We can imagine the damage and panic that a big fire would cause in such a crowded place as Tokyo.)
