History / Biographical
The Aidas were a Japanese-Canadian family who lived in Smithers during the 1920s-1940s. Kintaro Aida, born in Tokyo in 1888, immigrated to Canada in 1906 and married Sadako Fuseya-Wanibe, who had come to Canada from Japan in 1909. The couple had three sons in Prince Rupert - Tatsuo 'Tat' (b. 1916), Fujio 'Joe' (b. 1917), and Tetuso 'Ben' (b. 1919) - before moving to Smithers. Two more children - a son named Asao and a daughter named Sumiko - were born here in 1927 and 1929 respectively. Kintaro ran a tailor shop and rooming house, while Sadako managed a laundry. Sadako, Asao and Sumiko visited family in Japan shortly before the outbreak of World War II and were unable to return home until after the war. Asao got married in Japan and remained there. The rest of the Aida family moved to Stouffville, Ontario in the late 1940s. For more information, see finding aid.
