Caption: Ken Kato, left, and Dave Heyamoto, third generation Japanese-Americans, stand in front of the Globe building in downtown Spokane where Heyamoto lived as a child. Both men grew up downtown in the 1950s when Japanese-Americans and Japanese immigrants ran stores, hotels and laundries there. The lifelong friends believe they first met as preschoolers in “Dharma School” at the Spokane Buddhist Church, then located in a lower South Hill home converted into a church.
