Relationship between Ukraine and Karuizawa

During World War II, Karuizawa was evacuated by the Ukrainian-born pianist master Leo Sirota, who came to Japan in 1929 and remained for 15 years, training many students as a performer and educator. His daughter, Beate Sirota Gordon, was a member of the Japanese Constitution of 1946 and was instrumental in the creation of the human rights clause and the enshrinement of women’s rights.
