Was raised by his mother after his father died when he was nine. When he was a junior high student his mother bought him ISHINOMORI Shotaro’s [m]Manga Nyuumon[/m] and aspired to became a mangaka because of it. In 1976 his mother passed away.

Famed for being one of the most punctual serialised mangaka and never took a single break during his serialization of Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo on Weekly Shonen Jump.

Kochikame also received Guinness World Record for the most collected books for a manga with 200 volumes until overtaken by Golgo 13 in 2021.
He used the pen name YAMADOME Tatsuhiko (山止たつひこ) at the time of his debut until volume 6 of Kochikame, it was a parody of YAMAGAMI Tatsuhiko.
