Immigrants were required by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to carry an inspection card. During their voyage from Japan, Issei were checked daily to ensure that they were not carrying communicable diseases (see bottom portion of first page). Information from the card indicates that the steamship voyage from Japan took approximately eighteen days. This card belonged to Bunshiro Tazuma, aged thirty-three.
