Bunshiro Tazuma was a longtime Seattle resident and the owner of the Tazuma Ten-Cent Store in Seattle's Nihonmachi. In 1917, he immigrated to Seattle and became a permanent resident. (From 1908 to 1914, he had worked in Montana.) The Issei were required to carry medical inspection cards in conjunction with several other documents to show that they were physically sound.
