When he was eight years old, his mother left him with relatives and immigrated to the United States, joining his father who was already in California. Kadowaki finally made the voyage to the United States to join his parents in Santa Ana, California, when he was eighteen years old. Although he studied at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, after he got married, he turned to farming to support his family, leasing land from the Irvine Ranch Company.\n </p>\n <p>\n  When World War II began, he and his family were sent to the concentration camp in\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Poston_(Colorado_River)/\" title=\"Poston (Colorado River)\">\n   Poston\n  </a>\n  , Arizona. He continued to paint and teach oil and watercolor workshops to other inmates while incarcerated in Poston, although art supplies were scarce. Kadowaki also worked on a Japanese garden for the camp administration, which allowed the gardeners the freedom to use a truck to leave camp and pick up rocks for the garden composition. After three years at Poston, the Kadowaki family moved to New York to work for a family in Port Jervis. Kadowaki was later hired at the Metropolitan Museum of art to work in Asian art restoration.\n </p>\n <p>\n  After returning to California, Kadowaki and his wife ran the Asian art and antiques store for the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena until his retirement. He died in Los Angeles on January 22, 1993 at age 92.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Patricia_Wakida/\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">\n    Patricia Wakida\n   </a>\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Wakida, Patricia\n </div>\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n    For More Information\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n    Gesensway, Deborah and Mindy Rosenman, eds.\n    <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n     <i>\n      Beyond Words: Images from America's Concentration Camps.\n     </i>\n    </a>\n    Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1987.\n   </p>\n   <p>\n    <i>\n     The View from Within: Japanese American Art from the Internment Camps, 1942-1945\n    </i>\n    .
