The three formed Asian Kung-Fu Generation in 1996, with drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi joining the band shortly after.
While primarily limited to background vocals, Kensuke has had the opportunity to sing lead on the song, "Uso to Wonderland," the B-side to the band's very first number-one single, "World Apart" and also on the song "Seaside Sleeping," which is part of the Easter Single album.
