Brothers reunited in Japan after 60 years apart

Japanese-American Minoru Ohye had a wish for his 86th birthday which was to meet his younger brother again, Hiroshi Kamimura.

They were separated when they were children and had not seen each other for almost 60 years.

As part of a programme called Thrill of a Lifetime, Minoru Ohye was granted his wish of seeing his brother again in Japan.
