He exhibited artwork in the 1941 and 1961 B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The artist was living in Vancouver in 1941, but in 1942 he was interned at Hastings Park and sent to Three Valley Road Camp, near Revelstoke. Shadbolt remained his friend, corresponding with him at the internment camp, and recommended that Kawaguchi paint as many details of life in the camps as he possibly could.
BC Vital Statistics on-line notes the marriage of Kazumi Kawaguchi to Nobuko Wakita in Revelstoke on April 14 1943. He worked at various jobs after getting out of the camp, and moved back to Vancouver in 1950. In 1977 Kawaguchi was still living in Vancouver, noted as a "painter - watercolour."
Kawaguchi moved back to Richmond, but died in 2010 in an Abbotsford care home.
