Born in Seattle, WA, of Japanese American parents, Jim Yoshida grew up in a skid row hotel operated by his parents.

His mother took him and his sisters to Japan to deliver his father's ashes to the family burial plot when WWII broke out and the family had to stay in Japan. Jim was forced to serve in the Imperial Japanese Army in China. There he had many experiences and suffered terrible ordeals. When the war ended and he made it back to Japan, he learned that he had lost his U.S. citizenship. To prove his loyalty, he persuaded a US officer to let him serve illegally as a volunteer throughout the Korean War.
