A player who came through the youth team with Avispa, and even earned a couple of call-ups to the Japan U20 representative team he was popular with the fans as a player who had come through the ranks.
A diminutive player he depends on a very cultured left foot to unlock defences and provide creativity rather than physical attributes.
As he moved from a substitute to a starter his lack of dynamism cost him as the midfield was regularly over-powered, and he ended up playing too deep to be able to try and unlock defences.
When he is on the pitch he takes all set pieces around the penalty box and has decent ability at this, but it is in shots around the box in open play where he could really improve his game.
Moved to Tokyo Verdy in 2013 where I doubt he is going to get many games.
