He has been the challenger in both of the last editions, the 61st and 62nd, being repelled both times by Ida Atsushi (reigning champion since 2016). In 2022, however, he lost his first game to Nakano Hironari and was eliminated.

In 2022, he beat Fujisawa Rina to take a seat in the 78th Honinbo league (preventing Rina from becoming the first woman to do so). For his achievement, he was promoted to 7p.
