In September 1962, Akinori Hosaka arrived in Manchester.  His passport shows that he travelled from Tokyo, via Hong Kong to London, then on to Manchester. He told me that he had only seen images of England on newsreels and expected people to be dressed in suits and bowler hats and that he would meet real English gentlemen.  Forty two years later, I took the walk he made from the train station, first to sign the Alien's Register at Manchester Police HQ, and then through Manchester.  He loved to travel, observe and study new places, what did 1960's Manchester look like to a 25 year old Japanese man from Sendai, Northern Japan.
