June 18, 1944 (Sunday)

Went shopping at Shinjuku this morning with Peña and Quiambao and bought a few things to bring back to the P.I. These last few weeks we have been going shopping whenever there is a chance to do so in preparation for our return home. I have bought so many things already, ranging from Japanese dolls and books to powder and buttons and needles. So far I have spent more than Y200 on these things alone.

The air raid alarm was lifted at noon today, and the streets are again teeming with Tokyo’s millions who for two days stayed at home waiting for any emergency.

Tonight had my solo picture taken at a friend’s studio at Shinjuku.

Air Raid. As I write this (9:00 p.m.) the air raid alarm is being sounded. Another alert!
