A school team player for his alma maters Tsukimino Secondary School and Yamato Minami High School, Shimono's ability was recognized when he was one of several young players drafted into Albirex Niigata (S)'s squad during the 2009 S.League, along with Kenji Adachihara, Ryuta Hayashi and Takasuke Goto, while he was playing for the Japan Soccer College in the Hokushin'etsu Football League.

He made his debut for Woodlands Wellington on 21 February 2013 in a 2-2 draw against Warriors F.C.. and scored his first goal for Woodlands Wellington incidentally in the reverse fixture against the Warriors on 25 May 2013.
