He graduated from Hollywood High School. He studied architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, for two years. Following an invitation to a party hosted by actor Sessue Hayakawa, he was offered a job at Metro Studios in the film industry. He initially worked as a draftsman in the art department before he was promoted to art director in 1929 and began handling pictures.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Initially, when\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Executive_Order_9066/\" title=\"Executive Order 9066\">\n   Executive Order 9066\n  </a>\n  was signed, initiating the forced removal of all Japanese Americans off of the West Coast, MGM studio offered Imazu accommodations within the studio in order to retain him as their art director.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-1\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-1\">\n    [1]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n  However, Imazu and his wife Aiko (herself a Los Angeles native and accomplished artist) decided against separating the family and were incarcerated at\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Santa_Anita_(detention_facility)/\" title=\"Santa Anita (detention facility)\">\n   Santa Anita Assembly Center\n  </a>\n  and in the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Jerome/\" title=\"Jerome\">\n   Jerome\n  </a>\n  and\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Rohwer/\" title=\"Rohwer\">\n   Rohwer\n  </a>\n  , Arkansas, camps.
