I am looking for information on Tokyako Kowasato who was married to Donald Fortin around 1954. He was stationed on Hokkaido and met her there. It is hard to read the original birth certificate, so hopefully her name is spelled correctly.
Thank you!

The first and last name both sound strange. Could it be you have them both wrong?

Agreed. The family name might be Kawasato (e.g. 川里, 河里, 川郷 or 河郷), but I can't think of what the original of Tokyako is. (Takako, perhaps?)

Share a scan or photo of the document and we can tell better. Crop or block any parts that you feel shouldn't be public.

I looked at the birth certificate which is hard to read. It appears to be Tsuyako Kawasato, or Tsiyako Kawasato. She was born in Kagasaki, Japan.

Tsuyako Kawasato can be possible as a woman's name, but isn't the place name Kawasaki, not Kagasaki? Anyway, I have to say it would be almost impossible to identify her just by the romaji name and birth place, I'm afraid.

I doubt the document is a Japanese birth certificate. Could you PLEASE post a photo or scan of the section with her name? You're making guesses which aren't even phonetically possible in Japanese.
