Arriving in Canada aboard the "Empress of China" in 1898 he worked in Vancouver sawmills for four years before returning to Japan to collect his family.

As the first Japanese land owner, he bought and cleared 30 acres of land, planting strawberries and vegetables. And he was one of the founders of Nohkai (Japanese Farmer's Association) and served as Vice President in 1916. Kumekichi and his wife had two sons and three daughters. In 1942 the family was evacuated to a sugar beet farm in Picture Butte, Alberta.
