Toshiro Kago is one of the four people that the Lone Wanderer thaws out on board Mothership Zeta. As he doesn't speak English and no other character speaks Japanese, conversation is largely limited to gestures. Paulson refers to him as "the Chinaman," until Sally corrects him, after which Paulson changes his description to "oriental."
It appears Kago is a samurai warrior, and well-skilled in sword combat. He is capable of slaying aliens, should the samurai's sword be presented to him.
Among the Stars: Toshiro can be spoken to about his missing sword and the Lone Wanderer can return it to him after retrieving it from the maintenance level.
This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough...: During the final battle on the bridge, after the first wave of aliens are defeated, Toshiro will run in from a side door and assist Paulson and Somah in battling the next wave of attackers.
Effects of player's actions
After the events of Mothership Zeta, he stays aboard Zeta and cannot be interacted with. He will disappear if one revisits the Steamworks but will remain on the bridge if the player character travels to or from the Capital Wasteland. He can be found later in the living quarters.
Despite being unable to understand English, Toshiro still responds with different dialogue depending on whether the player character speaks to him with the polite, neutral, or smarmy dialogue options.
* Toshiro will use the sword if it is either recovered from the waste disposal area and given it to him, or if one never enters the Disposal area. Should the player decide to keep the sword, he will be unarmed.
If he is killed before the player character destroys all three generators, everyone will still act as if he wandered off after the generators are destroyed, and his body cannot be found afterward.
Unlike other characters who speak foreign languages, the in-game dialogue text merely shows his dialogue in romaji, rather than translate it into English.
"Onushi wa nanimono? Koko wa dokoda?" – What/who are you? Where is this place?
"Hito wo azakeru na. Onushi no monoii wa sappari wakaran. Sessha wo tasuke takuba, sessha no ken wo sagashi dase!" – Do not make fun of me. I do not understand what you meant. If you want to help me, find my sword!
"Sappari wakaran. Koko ga doko nanoka moose. Sessha no ken wa do shita?" – I don't understand [you] at all. Tell me where this place is! What has become of my sword?

↑Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.101: "Toshiro Kago One of the four entities that you thaw out during the abduction exploration on board Mothership Zeta is a silent and stoic man named Toshiro Kago. His lack of English, and your inability to converse in Japanese, mean conversation is never more than stilted gestures. Paulson refers to him as "the Chinaman," until Sally corrects him. It appears Kago is a Samurai warrior, and well-skilled in sword combat. His armor appears to date from around the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1568-1603), suggesting that Aliens have visited the Earth throughout history. He is more than capable of slaying Aliens if a particular ceremonial blade is presented to him. Or he can be slain without your other allies protesting."
