San Francisco, California

Born July 28, 1942, in Callao, Peru. Before World War II, parents ran a laundry business and father was a prominent community leader. When Kazumu was still an infant, the FBI arrested his father and sent the entire family to the Department of Justice camp at Crystal City, Texas. After leaving camp, the family was not allowed to return to Peru, so they moved to San Francisco with the help and sponsorship of a Shinto church reverend. Kazumu established successful design firm.
