Following the war Yatsuhashi established his own art and antiques shop, specializing in "objects of oriental art." The location was on Boylston near Berkeley Street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. After Mrs. Anglin’s trade with Yatsuhashi subsided, in the later 1950s, they apparently fell out of touch, but she called him on the telephone in 1969, that resulted in the letter he wrote to her dated February 19, 1969, in which he notes that he is enclosing her original bills from the Boston Book & Art Shop; he discusses the current value of Japanese prints and some family matters; and he tells her how nice it is to hear from her “as we have not heard from you in so long.”.
