Don't have to go to school this week. I straightened up the house. Daddy and I played dominoes. He beat.

December 26, 1933 - Nissan Motor Company is organized in Tokyo, Japan

The name 'Nissan' originated during the 1930s as an abbreviation used on the Tokyo stock market
 for Nippon Sangyo. This company was the famous Nissan "Zaibatsu" (combine) which included
Tobata Casting and Hitachi. In 1930 Nissan purchased controlling shares in DAT Motors. At this
time Nissan controlled foundries and auto parts businesses, but did not enter automobile
 manufacturing until 1933, when it merged Tobata Casting's automobile parts department with
DAT Motors. In 1934, Nissan separated the expanded automobile parts division of Tobata
 Casting and incorporated it as a new subsidiary, which was named Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
