Cincip

This is a photo from Cincip (“picnic” spelled backwards). Culturally we were trying to change everything around. “Baaad,” now meant good (“man, that’s baaad!”). Cincip was an event we organized in the late 1960s. It was our take on the “family” picnic, the community picnics, etc.

In the picture are Nobuko Miyamoto and Chris Iijima. Back then, Nobuko was “JoAnne.” Later, many started using their Japanese names with a sense of pride in their cultural heritage.
