My first DX (non-US) contact in Ham radio was with Mako Takazawa, JA1XS, in Yokohama Japan, in 1962.  Mako's long and distinguished career was with Sony Corporation and for a few years with their subsidiary Akai.  Mako and his family (wife Kayoko, daughters Atsuko and Toko) have been close friends ever since.  On a couple of my trips to Japan he stayed with the Takazawas and operated Mako's station using the visitor call sign 7J1ACJ.  Japan and the US have a reciprocal licensing agreement that provides US citizens with a valid US amateur radio license to acquire a visitor's license in Japan.
