He was born in Southern Honshu on October 24, 1904, and immigrated to San Francisco, California, in 1919. He graduated from the University of California at San Francisco in the 1930s with a degree in dentistry, and soon after established a thriving practice in Japantown.\n </p>\n <p>\n  When the United States entered World War II, Murata and his wife, Chisato Murata (who was born in Hawai'i), were sent first to the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Tanforan_(detention_facility)/\" title=\"Tanforan (detention facility)\">\n   Tanforan\n  </a>\n  Assembly Center and later to\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Topaz/\" title=\"Topaz\">\n   Topaz\n  </a>\n  , Utah.
