To Yoshiki and Naoko Sakane, owners of OCO TIME and IT’S TIME in downtown Ukiah, the OCO is a symbol of growing up in post W.W. II Japan. The OCO parlors were warm, friendly places and the OCO snack was yummy and cheap. Hiroshima had become a center for peace education and celebration. As children, Yoshiki and Naoko visited the Hiroshima Peace Park and were immersed in a peace curriculum at school. They eventually traveled to the U.S. landing in the Bay Area and continued to be involved in peace activities. Yoshiki worked for five years in a Japanese restaurant in Berkeley before the young family moved to Upper Lake to try out country living.
