Hiroshi was born in Hokkaido Japan in 1964. At his age of 6, his family moved to Ibaraki prefecture, the northeastern region of Kanto, and he entered small music school for electronic organ training. But three years after he started the class, he quitted the school because he wanted to play more freely. At the age of 10, the family moved to Tokyo. When he was a junior high school student, he bought his first small, analog, monophonic, synthesizer. He enjoyed to record all types of music and sound effects with his synthesizer and two cassette tape recorders. At the age of 17, he started learning to play the piano with self-study. After he graduated the high school, he went to an engineering college. He joined the jazz society and formed his own piano trio. He also formed an instrumental band with his friends from high school and started composing his own songs.
