Hayato started his career as a professional dancer in Japan. In 2007, he went with a contemporary dance company from his home country on tour to Germany, Spain and Hungary. He met a Japanese dancer who was working in Germany. Inspired by his story, four years later (the end of 2011), Hayato decided to take a similar step. He has been based in Germany and worked in Europe since then. Now he is on a (32 cities’) European tour with Cavalluna “Land Of A Thousand Dreams” until the end of June 2024. His role in the production is a dancer as well as a soloist (Handbalancing on a horse).
