The second choice shotstopper made his debut in 2007 for Japan and is good at dealing with high balls and kicks well. He started his professional career at Omiya Ardija when they were in the second division but then spent time training with Parma and did enough for the Italian club to consider signing the player only for Omiya to refuse.

He moved to Nagoya but struggled to displace Seigo Narazaki. He was then signed by Kawasaki Frontale where he has proven to be a solid and consitent 'keeper.
