- In 1911, the Togo Employment Agency was decorated to honor the visit to Seattle of Admiral Togo, likely on his way home to Japan from attending the coronation of King George V. In 1930, the Seattle City Directory indicates that the shop was managed by Setsugo Hosokawa, and advertised "all Kinds of Help Furnished." The agency was located at 407-409 Main Street.
