The father's name is Yoshio Kawashima. Since it's based on a true story, he was a real person.

In the book, it says the father's name only a few times and usually just says Yoshio.

 His name is called Yoshio Kawashima in real life ( a real person too!) but in the story itself, his daughter didn't say his full name but just say "Yoshio" in short.
