Sorry, not the case.
They must be registered, or they are (and were) officially non-persons.
And what were the numbers, please? Is it the case, as Mr. Hopwood
asserts, that 5-7 thousand Japanese Americans (i.e., American-born
sons of Japanese-born parents) served in the Japanese armed forces?
I have his numbers; I have not been able to verify those, as I have
been unable to verify other claims of his in the past.
1) I fail to see how this addresses the point that if you are NOT
in a koseki, you are NOT, nor were you, a citizen of Japan
2) In the case of being in Japan when war broke out, Nisei would
be given the choice of service or jail (as, indeed, most non-
students of military age in Japan.)
By way of comparison, how many nisei served in the U.S. armed forces?
As of Pearl Harbor, there were about 5000 in the military. After that,
of course, there were some "restrictions" placed on them.
And most important, how many nisei were there of military age?
Sorry, why is that important?
