Like the other cast members, he attends Barjona Marine High School.

Yamato is a tall, young man with wild, spiked blond hair. He generally wears a red T-shirt underneath a white button-down shirt, and a pair of jeans. He also wears a set of bobby-pins in his hair in the shape of an "X". His hair was originally drawn shaggier and was a darker shade of blond.
Personality and Interests
A former tennis player who came to Barjona, Yamato is optimistic and has good common sense, even though he is not very smart. He tends to act as a noritsukkomi character, as he goes along with crazy schemes but will point out their absurdities later on. He has a wild imagination, which tends to annoy his more serious peers.
He's also fond of cute girls, especially if they are blondes with big breasts.
Main article: Homare Aizu
Yamato and Homare tend to be at odds and constantly annoy each other. Yamato finds it fun to tease Homare, due to the fact that he'll become aggravated easily. Homare is also often cynical towards Yamato's ideas and will find amusement if Yamato ends up in an embarrassing situation of some sort.
Homare usually refers to Yamato as "Mountain fox".
Main article: Iriyoshi Toyama
According to one comic (possibly parallel), Yamato and Toyama met each other through their love of 'Mitokomon 26 and became fast friends.
Yamato and Keiko were childhood friends, though she eventually rejected him when he expressed interest in becoming her boyfriend. This rejection was what caused Yamato to initially refuse to attend high school.
Main article: Noto Kanazawa
The best-known meeting between these two came in the third Noto-sama game: When Noto was in the need of a new servant to help him bully and get revenge on the Barjona cast, he found Yamato and offered him pornographic magazines as a bribe for his service. The two became inseparable and teamed up for the next three games, proceeding to have many misadventures together in their quest to strip people.
Noto is often exasperated by Yamato's ideas, although his own ideas are even more outlandish and ambitious. Whenever one of them begins to talk seriously to the other, they begin to wonder if they are "planning to confess," which the other one will vehemently deny. In one of the alternate endings to Noto-sama 5, Yamato chooses to go off on an adventure with Noto and they appear more affectionate then normal. The route ends with Noto implying that Yomato slept with him.
In a parallel telling of their first meeting, Yamato decided to ally with Noto and Youko Kotohira as a trio of "heroes" for Kitayume.

Hetalia: Axis Powers
Yamato first appears in the sequel to Christmas Rampage 2007, in a crossover with Noto-sama. He finds out that Noto is lonely on Christmas and attempts to give him his scarf, though Noto rejects his gift. Noto then comes up with the idea for the two of them to get revenge on Christmas and the two set off for their own "rampage". They first take their revenge on Hetalia's Seychelles, by stripping her of her towel (after she had finished bathing), then proceed to get revenge on their peers and humiliate Santa Claus by tying him up and dressing him in lingerie. The two later find a "fortress" and invade it, intending to strip all of the people inside. But they wind up intruding upon a naked party going on between the nations of Hetalia and wind up stripped themselves. Yamato winds up discussing football with America in the end. In another early strip from around this time, Yamato encounters Chibitalia, who asks him to help find his older incarnation.
Yamato's next cameo in Hetalia is in the April Fools' 2008 event, when he and Noto appear in one of Spain's false news reports: In the report, it states that Yamato, Noto, and Prussia were arrested for indecent exposure on the World Academy W campus when they flashed a girl. Yamato later makes appearances in a series of sketches included in the Special Edition Booklet of Hetalia: Axis Powers Volume 2. In December 2008, Himaruya posted a scrapped page of a crossover comic featuring Yamato, Noto, and Toyama interacting with Sealand. A miniature crossover occurs between Hetalia and Barjona in the 2009 Christmas strips, when Yamato is shown with the other Barjona students, distressed over the fact that he didn't get to "perv out" with any girl. He then starts to hug and grind against a Christmas tree, pretending that it's a cute girl. However, he winds up caught by Homare, who finds Yamato's humiliation amusing.
In Noto-sama 3, after Hinaji Kasukabe gets a girlfriend, Noto is working alone and encounters Yamato, offering him porn magazines in exchange for becoming his new servant. Yamato accepts, and the rest of the game alternates between Yamato and Noto sitting down and talking, and Yamato facing off against Homare in trivia about bunnies, and eventually stripping him like Noto's victims.
In Noto-sama 4, Noto and Yamato chase Tsuko around the city in order to bully him. Most routes end up with Tsuko tied up in the basement, and he is either told scary stories or Yomato and Noto put him in compromising positions to take photographs. In one ending, should Noto and Yamato fail to capture Tsuko, Noto strips Yamato and handcuffs him to a wall, later to be visited by large naked men.
In Noto-sama 5, tired to Toyama's interference, Noto and Yamato head to New York City to torment students at World Academy W. Upon arriving, Yamato restrains Spain while Noto strips him and takes photographs. Afterwards, Yamato expresses a desire to see a girl naked for once, and he and Noto go spy on Hungary while she is changing. Prussia shows up and demands that they relinquish his peeping spot, and the two parties face off in a trivia game. Should Yamato and Noto win, they strip Prussia just as Hungary is on her way out. In an alternate path, Yomato and Noto choose to spend the day alone and appear to wake up in bed together.
In Noto-sama 6, Yamato and Noto are joined by the Player to return to World Academy W to bully more students. The main storyline cuts off after the group attempts to get into the school building. In an alternate path, Yamato returns to Japan alone after Noto goes off to become America's protege.
- His surname directly references Nara Prefecture, while his given name references the Yamato province that was its predecessor.
