Being a big fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he has made several appearances in the stage performances in Japan as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Other stage performances include the role of Captain Hook in Peter Pan and the Fox and the Conceited Man in Le Petit Prince. His most recent stage role was in the first Japanese production of Tommy, playing the parts of Cousin Kevin and the Pinball Wizard.
