"Only in the 1960s did new legislation broaden immigration from Asia and gave paper sons a chance to tell the truth about who they were and restore their real names in 'confessional' programs. But many chose to stick with their adopted names for fear of retribution and took their true names to their graves."

Jūzō Itami - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
never realized he was the dad in 'Family Game'...!

"At the end of the war, when he was in Kyoto, Itami was chosen as an infant prodigy and educated at Tokubetsu Kagaku Gakkyū (特別科学学級; "the special scientific education class") as a future scientist who was expected to defeat the allied powers."
"He moved from Kyoto to Ehime when he was a high school student. He attended the prestigious Matsuyama Higashi High School, where he was known for being able to read works by Arthur Rimbaud in French. But due to his poor academic record, he had to remain in the same class for two years."
