In 1962, in connection with a World Congress of Anesthesia in Kyoto, my wife Elinor and I visited Yoshi Honda in Kanazawa, with an invitation to speak on blood gas analysis. He patiently translated each sentence of my lecture for the audience, and then showed us his department and laboratory, followed by a tour of the ancient city and its amazing aqueduct system. Even at that time he was the respiratory physiologist in Japan best known in the US from his publications in English.
