Looking for Japanese Relatives


6 Dec 2017

I'm 1/4 Japanese thanks to my grandmother on my dad's side. I'm looking for any of her currently living family members.

Their family name is Ajikata 味方. My grandmother's name is Kayo. Her brother's name is Giichi. Her father's name is Yoshihiko. My grandmother is currently 83 so it is likely that everyone I just mentioned is dead, but I know they had children. She has dementia, and about 10-15 years ago had a falling out with her family and hasn't heard or attempted to contact them since. I've asked my dad and my aunt countless times if they have any old contact information, but alas, they don't.

I have heard that my grandmother was born in Oita, but I also have heard she lived in Chiba. I'm not sure what to make of that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
