I would like to contact surviving family members of Nao Wakita (1885-1922) from Yokokawa Village, Ara district, Kagoshima. She joined the family of my grandfather Goh Kia Joo in Nilai, Negri Sembilan, Malaya. She passed away aged 37 on 28 September 1922, and is buried at the Japanese Cemetery in Kuala Lumpur. I have photos of four Japanese (three men, one woman in a kimono) who appeared at the funeral and presume they were her relatives or friends. Sadly, my family has lost our connection with Japan ever since, and I hope very much to contact, if possible, any surviving relatives of Nao.

From her tombstone inscriptions:

故妾脇田ナヲ墓
原籍鹿兒島縣姶良郡横川村字中野
大正年十一年玖月廿八日終三十七歲

Arigato gozaimasu.
