The characters all change and improve their personal self esteem, as when Sachi has learned to love herself and accept the beauty of life and find herself through the actions of Matsu, and the words of Stephen. Matsu has affected Sachi not by what he claimed, but by what he had done; Matsu cared for Sachi and showed empathy and respect where nobody else had, making it all the more valuable, and that gradually assisted Sachi in having hope for herself and for her dignity. Throughout the forty or more years that Sachi had been afflicted with leprosy, she went on that journey of self-actualization, and Matsu helped her through it, through his simple thoughts and actions, as when he came to Sachi’s rescue when she ran away from her own death, when

She allows herself to access May’s therapeutic realm where she builds new paths towards her mother’s past, “I wanted to let go of my feelings for a little while, to pull in my moat bridge” (124).

Likewise, Lily’s letter for her father fractures that awful paternal image, “It brings me J-O-Y to finally say this things to your face” (202), Lily
