yukihiro was born on November 24, 1968 in Ichikawa, near Tokyo. His father is a company worker, and his mother is a kimono-wearing instructor. He has a younger sister.
yukihiro has stated that he had as ordinary a childhood as any other kid, never questioning his destined path of going to school, graduating to a university, and ultimately becoming a white-collar salaryman. But he loved music, both Japanese and American, from heavy metal to pop. He was also a good short-track athlete in junior high school. However, he was kicked out from his athletics club for his sabotaging of the daily training.
When he entered high school, he started to play the drums and immediately decided to be a professional rock musician. Once he made the decision, he told his parents that he was leaving school because it was of no use to him. His parents forbade this, thus he continued his education while devoting himself mostly to rock music.
During his university days (he left The Chiba University of Commerce), he joined Zi : Kill, one of the rising visual kei rock groups of the time.
