In 1923, Tazuko dropped out of school for reason of “convenient to do housework”, and in March of the following year, her mother died suddenly at the age of 47. Soon after, a woman named Daisetsu Tsuru became the second wife. In line with the marriage recommended by her died mother, Tazuko met with an obstetrician and gynecologist named Takaoka and married in 1925 at the age of 21. However, this marriage did not go well. Tazuko left the house and returned to her parents’ home. The eyes around all looked coldly at Tazuko, so she decided to be self-reliance. Aspiring to the film industry, she was introduced by her father in 1929 as a director assistant at Nikkatsu Dazai Photo Studio. Therefore, replacing her predecessor Mitsue Goda (合田光枝, sister of actress Haruko Setsuko 原節子), Tazuko worked for the director Kenji Mizoguchi (溝口健二), and obtained the friendship of Mrs. Kenji and Chieko (Chieko's real name: Kane Tajima 田島かね) . Since then, Tazuko had been involved in making movies as a member of Mizoguchi group, and had learned practical matters.

When Mizoguchi left Nikkatsu in 1932 and moved to the Shinko Kinema (新興キネマへ), Tazuko was also invited to move to the company. (Since then Mizoguchi moved to the company, Tazuko would follow him. This was common because the movie industry at that time had a strong apprenticeship.) Mizoguchi then made “Taki no Shiraito” (1933, 滝の白糸), “Gion Festival” (1933, 祇園祭), and “Kanfuren” (1934, 神風連), and Tazuko helped him as a director assistant. In 1933, Irie Pro, who co-produced “Taki no Shiraito”, asked Tazuko to try to supervise, but in the end it did not happen. In 1934, Mizoguchi moved to Tokyo with Tazuko and joined Nikkatsu Tamagawa Photo Studio (日活多摩川撮影所) . Around this time, Tazuko asked again for the promotion of the director, but the reaction of the staff was so cold that it was not realized. It said that Tazuko was planning to make a movie for Uncle Ashiaga (足長おじさん). Tazuko disappointedly returned to Kyoto with the invitation by Mizoguchi, and joined the first movie he just made. Tazuko started living near her father in Kyoto, and served as assistant director under the Mizoguchi for “Otsukuru Osen” (折鶴お千), “Maria no Yuki” (マリヤのお雪), and “Koujaku Grass” (虞美人草, all in 1935).
