The events of the 7th of December of that same year –  the declaration of war from the USA to Japan due to the bombing of Pearl Harbour – forced them to go back to Tokyo, where they remained trapped. This situation makes them stay indefinitely in a hotel, becoming war stringers. At the same time, they will try to find a way back home.
