Akihito was born in the Fukuoka prefecture in southern Japan. When he was young he appreciated horror movies, creatures, and the fantastic. He constructed unique creations from the images he saw. Growing up, Akihito’s parents strictly emphasized schooling and lessons over play and toys. This pushed Akihito toward more imaginative outlets and he created Gundams, cars, and creatures using materials he had at hand such as bamboo, clay, paper, and tape.
As his skills matured he began to be interested in special makeup effects. In 1997, 1998, and 2000, Akihito won first place in TV’s Champions’ Special Effects Make-up King competition. 1998 was a busy year for Akihito, at that time he won the Avante Garde make-up competition at the IMATS (International Make-up Trade Show) held in the United States. He produced an original special make-up effects fashion show in Tokyo. Also he was the main designer for the “Ultraman Cosmos”, a show similar to "Power Rangers”.
