Imai played for Fujitsu (later Kawasaki Frontale) from 1977 to 1981.
In November 2005, Imai was appointed by Japan Football Association to coach Chinese Taipei national team and to help the football development in Taiwan. It was his first international assignment. He accepted the challenge and signed a one-year contract with Chinese Taipei Football Association in December. Under his guidance, although the team did not have any amazing performance in international competitions, it was believed[by whom?] that Imai did bring good influence on the team, as well as football activities in Taiwan.
On December 15, 2006, Imai extended his contract with CTFA. In addition to men's national team, he also led Chinese Taipei women's national team in the 2008 Olympic Games qualification in February 2007. In 2008, he returned to Japan and became the manager of Waseda University.
In 2016, Imai became manager of Chinese Taipei again, but was fired in October of that year after complaints of team disunity. By January 2017, he was already mentoring Global Cebu which is set to participate at the Philippines Football League as its head coach.
