Club career[edit]

At 17 years and 208 days, he was club's youngest-ever league debutante, a record previously held by Kota Mizunuma (17 years and 247 days).[2] Two months later, on 5 September 2009, Ono scored his first goal in a 3–1 victory against V-Varen Nagasaki in the Emperor's Cup. In January 2011, he signed a new long term contract with Marinos.[3]

On 20 July 2015, Ono signed a contract with Sint-Truiden.[4]
