Masabumi Hosono, the only Japanese passenger on the Titanic, stood on the Boat-Deck, torn between the fear of shame & the instinct for survival.  There were 2 spots open in Lifeboat #10.

In March of 1990, she made her first sea voyage since 1912 - a cruise to Mexico. She passed away later that year at the age of 90.
