After the war, in1946, Mitsuhiko returned to his hometown Nagoya.
However, there was nothing but burnt-out ruins.
Naturally, there was no employment for cameraman.
Then he started to run a small liquor shop.
But he was always thinking about figure skating.
 
At that time, his first son Tsuguhiko was born.
He had never forgotten Nakamura’s word
“Entrust our dream to child and grandchild’s generations”
 
But there was no ice rink in Nagoya so they had to go to the rink in Nagano by overnight
trip.
In 1948, he formed up Aichi skating federation with skating lovers and made efforts to
spread figure skating.
Then he called local companies and shops to fund for building the ice rink.
In 1953, finally Nagoya sports center where had an ice rink was opened.
 
"I want to create an environment that everyone can enjoy skating just like in Manchurian and also want to raise Olympic skater. "
 
Every time he saw a child and one’s parent, he told them
“Would you like to let your child skating?”
He taught skating to children without a fee.
  
He visited to specialist of college and studied effective training methods for skating.
And compiled the instruction book with taking half a year.
He delivered books to schools in local and asked them to introduce skating for the class
of physical education.
 
Thanked of his efforts, many people came to the rink.
Among them, there was a girl who was eager to skate.
Machiko Yamada, who became the coach of Midori Ito and Mao Asada later.
 
Yamada: He always treated me as an athlete not as a child.
           So it (the practice) was not fun for me”
 
About that time, Tsuguhiko entered in elementary school and started skating in earnest.
He was good at sports so he got able to skate smooth by learning only once.
Mitsuhiko thought “He might be an Olympic skater”
 
Mitsuhiko trained his son compulsory thoroughly.
“The most important thing of figure skating is the basic skills”
Nakamura’s word was still reminded in Mitsuhiko’s heart.
 
Tsuguhiko started practice at 6 AM before the class and spent all the time practicing
compulsory.
He got a blow on the head by Mitsuhiko whenever he couldn’t do it well.
Mitsuhiko had a toothache because he always gnashed his teeth when Tsuguhiko didn’t
skate well.
 
After then, Tsuguhiko became a top skater in Japan.
He won the Inter high school winter meet and National winter festival for straight three
times.
At third grade of college student, he won the Japanese National and qualified for
Olympics.
 
Mitsuhiko’s dream he brought from Manchurian became fruit 25 years later.
 
At Grenoble Olympics, however being the undefeated king of skating in Japan, Tsuguhiko
sank into 21th. He slammed into the thick wall of world figure skating.
 
Tsuguhiko: That was overwhelming defeat.
              If it possible, I wanted to get off a plane at Korea and to go on board a ship
              to Japan. I wished to go back to Japan quietly.
              I still remind it. Some people called me “tax spender”
              That was really hard experience for me.
 
The Olympics would have been a dream that son and father fulfilled,
but they tasted disappointment by making aware of great gaps
between Japanese skating and Worlds skating
