Born in Fukushima, Japan on November 3, 1947, Hirono Keiko (広野 慶子), she had a troubled upbringing back in the Land of the Rising Sun due to a gambling, alcoholic father, causing her mother to take Keiko and her brother to escape his clutches for the hope of a better life in Hawaii.

In the meantime, enjoy the story of Mazie K. Hirono HERE.
