He is the best in NPB in making solid contact with the ball, and hits singles in every direction of the field like a machine. His . 378 batting average in 2008 is the highest as a right-handed batter in history. He has played with a .300 batting average for seven years in a row. With the last WBC's defeat in mind, he will promise to win this time.

He achieved the highest batting average of right-handed hitters in history with . 378 in 2008, and became the second player in history to win a best hitter for average title in both Central and Pacific Leagues in 2008 and in 2011. After turning professional, he kept collecting hits with his extraordinary batting sense, for example, his batting average was above .300 for 7 years in a row, and as of SAMURAI JAPAN, he played 6 games in the second WBC in 2009 and was praised for both his good defensive plays and batting, going 6 for 18 with . 333 batting average, 1 home run and 4 RBIs,and throwing a nice ball from left that turned the tide in the final game against Korea.

He played 6 games in the third WBC in 2013 and peformed well, going 8 for 23 with . 348, 1 home run and 4 RBIs, but regretfully made a mistake as a runner in a semifinal against Puerto Rico. He was constantly selected for Kokubo Japan, but what is always on his mind is to remove the regretful feelings in the previous tournament. He will deliver a win and joy as a main scorer in a lineup and as one of a few players who experienced winning a championship.
