In the Kabuki world, it is usual for the son of an actor to follow the father's footsteps since very early ages, but his parents divorced in 1968 and his mother was given the custody of him. After that event, he never saw his father again, and his mother refused to give him any training on the Kabuki art and he grew believing that it was "something that must not be watched". However he tried several times to meet his biological father. When he was 20, he went to one of his performances and asked if he could see him, stating that he was Ennosuke's son, but when his father's assistants reported to him the situation he refused, stating that he didn't have any son.
