Kissy Suzuki married James Bond and had a child by him. There is no history for this child. Because Ian Fleming is in my family tree, I will provide this history and genealogy. I would like to reborn the Japanese artists and poets in a series of movies about ‘The Royal Janitor’. There may be a conflict with the families of these people, and thus I may have to change the names.
Victoria Bond’s great, great, great Grandfather is Takeshi Kanno who became a fovorite of the poet, Joaquin Miller, after Leonie departed. Takeshi married the sculptor, Gertrude Boyle. They had a son. Driven away by jealousy, Gertrude found refuge in the arms of Eitaro Eishagaka who is the nephew of a Yakuza gang leader who tried to take control of the Japanese silent film imdustry in Los Angeles. Porno movies were made. Eitoro suspected the boy Gertrude gave birth to, belonged to Takeshi, but, he raised it as his own. His name is Kalwito.
After a crackdown on foreign Bohemians by LPD, the Eishagakas moved back to Japan. Bid to give up a life of crime, and a fascination with Marxism, Eitaro returns to his village where his daughter was born, and later, his granddaughter. These women became Ama divers, along with Kalwito’s daughter, Tokuo. The Yakuza are never far away. Gertrude’s sister has her arrested at the dock in San Pedro for being insane, but, is soon set free to make the voyage.
When the Eishagakas move back to Los Angeles, they try to get back into the ligitimate film industry. Thirtty years later, Kissy is chosen to be the first Japanese star. She attracts the attention of a famous movie star who will remain anonymous for now. They have an affair that goes badly. Kissy returns to Japan, where she meets the love of her life, James Bond. They get married and have a girl. Her name is Elisha Rose Bond. Elisha marries a member of the Thyssen family who she meets at UCLA. His name can not be divulged at this time.
The fight over the Thyssen art, and other treasure that Hitler stole, was heating up. Members of the Thyssen family were employing shady characters, members of organized crime, even the Russian Mafia. When Thyssen learned Elisha was connected to the Yakuza, he married her, not for love, but for a cashe of gold that the Thyssen family had squirreled away. Family feuds over art are the most vicious feuds of all. I should know.
After Elisha Bond Thyssen dies a mysterious death, her eight year old daughter was deposited at the College of Arms, put in the care of the Janitor who had been the head maid for Baron Thyssen. At Le Rosy, Victoria Bond discovers her passion for sculpting.
“I think it’s in my blood!”
Then she began to pen Haiku poems, and go into a trance.
In ‘You Only Live Twice’ we see the faked death of James Bond, that ties in with the recent attempt to Off Bond, and, have him be reborn as a black agent? I suspect capturing the Japanese market was a motive for the first pseudo death.
I have rooted the Bond Family Tree in Bohemian and Japanese culture. The poet, George Sterling, founded the Bohemian Carmel Colony, with the help of his friend, Jack London, the great adventure writer, who Ian Fleming might have read.

SUIT OF WHITE WIFE OF JAP IS BEGUN
Los Angeles Herald June 29, 1915
Another chapter was written today in the dramatic romance of ‘Gertrude Boyle Kanno, noted California sculptress, well known in Los Angeles and Pasadena art circles, and Takeshi Kanno, Japanese poet and philosopher, who were married in Seattle in the spring of 1907 after a romantic wooing at The Heights, summer home of the late Joaquin Miller. Superior Judge Troutt in San Francisco today called for trial the secret complaint of Mrs. Kanno. asking divorce on the grounds of extreme cruelty. Jealousy and suspicion and refusal to provide are Mrs. Kanno’s charges. “Several times defendant has accused plaintiff of want of chastity and lack of virtue,” says the complaint, “and has persecuted plaintiff through his extreme jealousy.” When she was absent from home, alleges Mrs. Kanno, her Oriental husband would telephone to their friends and explain his suspicions and fears to them. Mrs. Kanno alleges that she always has been a dutiful wife and has given Kanno no cause for mistrust. None of the details of her sensational arrest last March on charges of insanity brought by her sister, Helen Boyle, are recited in Mrs. Kanno’s complaint. At that time she admitted her affection for Kanno, the poet, had waned in favor of E. Eishagaka, a young Japanese sculptor. Mrs. Kanno says she has supported herself entirely by her own labor. Kanno has filed no answer to the complaint, although it was died March 17, and he was served with a summons two days later. It is expected the suit will go to Mrs. Kanno by default.
My semi-autobiographical novel ‘The Gideon Computer’ begins at the Golden West Saloon in downtown Oakland where Bill gets drunk and passes out. He comes to standing mid-span on the Golden Gate bridge looking at the setting sun. There is a ceremony about dropping the bomb on Hiroshima. This novel is about the Guilt Code we all carry. The premise of this story stems from the old hippie saying;
“Don’t lay your guilt-trip on me!”
Tokuko Takagi was born in Misakichō in 1891. In 1906, she married Chimpei Takagi, 24, when she was 15. They both moved to America where she eventually acted in four early silent films. She returned to Japan in 1914, due to the outbreak of World War I. In 1915, she had her Japanese domestic dance debut in the Imperial Theatre. While she was on tour in 1919, she suddenly died of a cerebral hemorrhage.

From 1915-1926 lived with Gertrude Farquharson Boyle.
Suzuki is introduced when James Bond must go undercover, acting as a local fisherman, while investigating the mysterious happenings surrounding a small island in Japan. As an agent, she is chosen by her employer, Tiger Tanaka, to aide Bond on the mission due to her keen sense of adventure and skills as an Ama diver. Bond and Suzuki marry in a staged wedding ceremony allowing Bond access to continue his investigation further, moving around the islands of Japan as an unnoticeable local rather than an obvious visitor.
During a meal at Suzuki’s house, Kissy makes clear to Bond that, although the pair are married, their work together “is business”. That evening, Suzuki informs Bond and Tanaka of word going around the local village that an Ama girl mysteriously died in a cave on the mainland that served as a vent for a nearby Volcano. The pair agree to set sail for the cave in the morning to investigate.
The following morning, Bond and Suzuki leave Matsu Island and head over to the cave. When in the cave, the pair instantly realize something is wrong. Bond tells Suzuki the cave is filled with poisonous gas to which the pair flee the boat and swim out of the cave underwater, not rising until they reach fresh air. Swimming on to land, Bond and Suzuki continue to search the perimeter for clues. While walking, the pair take a moment to relax where the pair finally share an intimate moment, cut short by a passing helicopter that seems to fly into the mouth of a volcano which Suzuki tells Bond hasn’t been active in her life time. Investigating further, they realize the roof of the volcano is in fact a metal door leading inside SPECTRE‘s base.
Kissy Suzuki is a fictional character introduced in Ian Fleming‘s 1964 James Bond novel, You Only Live Twice. Despite Bond’s womanizing, Kissy Suzuki (at least the literary version) remains the only character known to the reader who bears a child by him. The treatment of Kissy varies greatly between the novel and the film, where she is never identified by her name, no family name appears in the closing credits, and the film ends in the usual Bond-style happy ending.
Tiger Tanaka is an ally to Bond in the film You Only Live Twice. He is the head of the Japanese secret service, and resides within a secret underground office complex beneath the streets of Tokyo – his identity being the most closely guarded secret in Japan. He supplies an army of ninjas to attack Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Tanaka helps Bond disguise himself to look Japanese so that Blofeld will not recognise him. Tanaka arranges for Bond to marry a girl native to the land in order to provide extra cover. Kissy Suzuki is Bond’s new wife and, together, Bond, Suzuki, and Tanaka succeed in attacking Blofeld’s volcano base, even though Blofeld survived. Tanaka is portrayed by Tetsurō Tamba. He also appears in the 007 novels You Only Live Twice and The Man with the Red Tattoo, as well as in the Dynamite Entertainment-published spin-off comic book, Felix Leiter.
The yakuza have also put down roots in California where they have made alliances with Korean and Vietnamese gangs and furthered their traditional partnerships with the Chinese triads. Los Angeles is particularly attractive because of the influx of young actresses desperate to get their big break in the film industry. Yakuza shills have become adept at luring these vulnerable women into porn films and prostitution. Japanese men, whether on sex tours or at home in Japan, often desire western women, particularly blondes. – crimelibrary
13. The Yakuza see violent death as poetic, tragic and an honorable way to die. They also help the weak and steal from the rich. These romantic notions actually put the gang in a favorable light in the public’s eye.
The publication has been distributed among the infamous Yakuza – believed to

The magazine – named “Yamaguchi-gumi Shinpo” – has an entertainment
section detailing fishing trips by top officials, along with satirical haiku
– a traditional Japanese form of poetry – and pieces on the board games.
She attended Cogswell College, Lick School (California School of Mechanical Arts) and Mark Hopkins Institute of Art. She studied under Douglas Tilden and Arthur Mathews. In New York after 1915, she lived with Eitaro Ishigaki until about 1928. She was art editor of the Birth Control Review for about three years. She did portrait busts and medallions in plaster and bronze of many famous persons including: Isadora Duncan, Eitaro Ishigaki, Henry Cowell, Uldrick Thompson, Margaret Miller, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John Muir, Ida Tarbell, Ezra Meeker, John Swett, Joseph LeConte, David Starr Jordan, Joaquin Miller, Edwin Markham, William Keith, Luther Burbank, Albert Einstein, Charles Erskine Scott Wood, John Fremont, Susan Mills, Horace Traubel, Christy Mathewson and Sidney Gulick. She died on August 14, 1937, at St. John’s Hospital.
But Thyssen, viewing fascism as the only bulwark against bolshevism, backed Hitler solely as a nationalist and anticommunist. When Hitler led Germany into war and began persecuting Jews and Catholics (Thyssen was a Catholic), the industrialist broke with the Nazis and in 1939 fled to Switzerland. Hitler promptly confiscated the Thyssen fortune (about $88 million) and stripped Fritz Thyssen of German citizenship. Thyssen later wrote a scathing denunciation of Nazism titled “I Paid Hitler.”
Thyssen moved to France in 1940, but in 1941 the Vichy government picked him up as he was about to leave for South America. He was reportedly sent to Dachau and was found in a detention camp in the Italian Tirol at war’s end. Tried and convicted by a German denazification court of being a “minor Nazi,” Fritz Thyssen was ordered to turn over 15 percent of his property to a restitution fund for victims of Nazi persecution. A bitter man, he left Germany in 1950 to visit his daughter, Countess Zichy, in Argentina. It was at her Buenos Aires home that he died of a heart attack at the age of 77.
Amelia zur Helle Thyssen (b. 1878?—d. Aug. 25, 1965, Puchhof, Bavaria, W.Ger.) inherited the Thyssen steel and coal empire upon the death of her husband, Fritz, in 1951. During World War II she had voluntarily joined her husband at the Dachau concentration camp and later was held at Buchenwald as well. Following her husband’s death, she returned to Germany, but she never reclaimed her citizenship. She ran the family enterprises from her Bavarian castle (Puchhof), which was filled with valuable paintings and rare porcelain. Under her, Thyssen Steel merged with another large producer, creating the biggest steel company in western Europe and the third largest company (behind Volkswagen and Krupp) in Germany. For her role in launching the Fritz Thyssen Foundation to help advance German science, she received West Germany’s highest civilian medal, the Federal Service Cross.
The Swiss billionaire Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen Bornemisza, who has died aged 81, accumulated arguably the greatest private art collection in the world. All his adult life, he invested his wealth in art to augment the collection he had inherited from his father.In the early 1990s, realising that his collection of almost 800 paintings had outgrown his home in Lugano, Switzerland, the baron began to look for a new location. Spain won the day over stiff competition for a collection said to outstrip even that of the Queen. Both Prince Charles and Mrs Thatcher flew to Switzerland to put in a bid for Britain; President Mitterand lobbied for France; the Getty Foundation offered millions of dollars for the United States; and the Swiss government tried to block the paintings’ export.
But, in 1993, the pressure of the bedroom decided matters in favour of the birthplace of the baron’s fifth wife, Carmen “Tita” Cervera, a former beauty queen and widow of Tarzan Of The Apes actor Lex Barker. She negotiated with the Spanish government, who paid more than £241m for the collection, and donated the Villahermosa palace in Madrid, near the Prado, to house it. The contract was for 10 years but, after further negotations, it was agreed that the Villahermosa should became its permanent home.
Relations between “Baron Heini” and his older children, long tense, were aggravated after his marriage to Baroness Tita, who was once described by his daughter Francesca as “the wicked stepmother”. Four years ago, he accused his oldest son, 52-year-old Georg (or Heini Jr), of negligence in the running of the family trust, which had been signed over to him five years earlier.
The baron launched court proceedings against Heini Jr to regain control of the billion-dollar holdings in the Bahamas. It was a case that threatened to enrich only the expensive lawyers employed by both sides; finally, last year, the two came to a private agreement.
Von Thyssen was born in Scheveningen, Holland, the fourth, and youngest, child of Heinrich von Thyssen, a wealthy German industrialist, and Margit Bornemisza, a Hungarian aristocrat. The family empire, founded on shipbuilding, coal, steel and iron, had been started by the baron’s grandfather, August, who left his fortune to his two sons, Fritz and Heinrich, in 1926.
The grandfather was not a collector on the scale of his son and grandson, but was an admirer of Auguste Rodin, from whom he commissioned a set of six marble sculptures (they remain one of the gems of the collection). Relations between the brothers were acrimonious, with Fritz a sympathiser and financial supporter of the Nazis; his industrial interests would eventually form the basis of the Thyssen-Krupp group.
Heinrich Sr inherited August’s love of art, along with the other financial benefits. He built up the collection with wise investments, buying at bargain-basement prices from American magnates ruined in the 1929 crash. Heinrich and his wife divorced in 1931, and 10-year-old Heini moved with his father to Switzerland, where they adopted Swiss nationality the following year.
Heini was only 26 when his father died in 1947, leaving his fortune, and 525 paintings and other art works, to his children. As the only sibling who had inherited their father’s love of art, after an acrimonious court case Heini set about buying the collection back from his brother Stefan and sisters Margit and Gabrielle.
Heinrich Sr had invested heavily in art works up to the 18th century, but his son’s interests favoured 19th- and 20th-century works; his purchases created a priceless collection, and a course in the history of art under a single roof. For many years, his vast wealth permitted him to take his place among the international jet-set, attending all the best parties and staying at the best hotels, while sitting on the boards of some 30 companies, many of them in IT and the technical sector.
Until his health began to fail, Heini and Baroness Tita continued this lifestyle, shuttling between their various mansions in Switzerland, three in Spain, Jamaica, Paris and London, which they filled with priceless and favoured paintings.
The baron is survived by Tita – his fifth wife – and his five children. These are Heini Jr, son of his first wife, the Austrian Princess Teresa zur Lippe Weissenfeld; Francesca (married to Karl von Hapsburg) and Lorne, by his third wife, the British former model Fiona Campbell-Walter; Alexander, from his fourth marriage, to the Brazilian Denise Shorto; and Borjahe, Carmen Cervera’s son, whom he adopted. His second wife was Nina Dyer.
