I am proud of my country
I am proud to be a descendant of the HEIKE Clan. One in four Japanese have Heike DNA. Heike lost the war against Genji, however, Heike left Buddhist temples, Hiragana, Waka that later became Haiku, the kimono and Lady Murasaki. "The Tale of Heike" is still the best seller today, it is a sad story. Our Emperor also has Heike DNA.
My father, Haruo, was a sailor on the battleship"FUSO" in 1915. Japan is a maritime country while China is not. Chinese sailors are afraid of water that is well known fact.
