I Am Praying for You From Yasukuni Shrine

From Father,
Keiko, my darling Keiko,
Father is praying that you grow up soon, become a fine person and work for the sake of the country.
Be sure to follow what Mother teaches you and study hard so that you are never second to anyone.
You must remember that effort is better than genius, become a great person and be dutiful to Mother.
Father is always praying in this way for you from Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo.
