He immigrated directly to New York at the age of sixteen in 1917, where he joined the Art Students League and studied with\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Yasuo_Kuniyoshi/\" title=\"Yasuo Kuniyoshi\">\n   Yasuo Kuniyoshi\n  </a>\n  , while also studying art at Columbia University throughout the 1920s. Tsuzuki participated in the annual exhibitions of the Society of Independent Artists, the Salons of America, and Anderson Galleries, all of New York, along with fellow Japanese artists such as Noboru Foujioka, Eitaro Ishigaki, Torajiro Watanabe, and Yoshida Sekido. He eventually became the co-director of the Salons of America with Kuniyoshi.\n </p>\n <p>\n  In 1932, he moved to California with his wife and daughter to become a caretaker of an estate in San Mateo.
