Living in such artistic tradition environment, Tamasaburo was surrounded by many respectable predecessors, yet during his young age, there were three persons inspiring him the most, they are his foster father Morita Kanya XIV and the two apprentices of him, Bando Tamon and Bando Yagoro. As a father and a tachiyuka, another type of Kabuki actor, Kanya taught him all about the characteristics of a good person as well as a standard Kabuki actor, meanwhile, Tamon and Yagoro, especially Tamon who is also an Onnagata, taught him the path to accomplishedly represent a character and the very minor elements to truly success in the role of an Onnagata.

The image of Ataturk as an educator is especially notable; perhaps the most significant part of Ataturk’s radical program of reforms and modernizations in the 1920’s, it was the switch that sort Turkish drop the Arabic alphabet and writing from right to left in favour of European script from left to right. However, the father of the Turks status can even be found in Washington
