Toshiko Kubota was born on September 2, 1927, in Wilmington, California. Her father worked as a car salesman in Los Angeles while her mother worked as a seamstress. In 1942, the family volunteered for early incarceration at the concentration camp at Manzanar, California. While incarcerated, Kubota graduated from Manzanar High School. When Manzanar was closed, she moved to Seabrook Farms in New Jersey to join her parents and worked there. Her family returned to Los Angeles in March 1946. Kubota retired as a financial analyst after working forty-six years for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
