Yamato wears the standard Nanba uniform, consisting of a guard hat that is wrapped in a hinomaru hachimaki. A black overcoat with a white dress-shirt that has rectangular, gold collar pins; as well as a red neck-tie and black trousers. His name tag is fitted to his left breast on his uniform. On his left arm is the red building 13 arm band.

He has black hair with gradients of dark-grey as well as dark-grey eyes. His hair is styled in a way where the front is cut shorter and bluntly, with two side-pieces that extend to his chest.

Yamato carries a purple shinai bukuro, which he is usually seen carrying on his right shoulder.

He is a loud and friendly person, often seen laughing heartily. He seems to be the most friendly of the guards, treating the inmates kindly and acting very friendly with them and is shown to not be scared or think ill of them in the slightest. He is pretty carefree, seen usually with a big smile on his face, and is rarely shown angry or sad.

Despite his love of training, he is shown to prefer peaceful methods and is smarter than he seems. He is a hardcore Japanese person and indulges in Japanese culture. Yamato is very skilled in calligraphy having a Masters teaching license in calligraphy. He's a very loud extrovert and tends to do what he wants, at one point riding a horse into Cell 13 and destroying the wall. He has shown to care for the inmates, at one point saving Rock and Uno after Jyugo went on a rampage. He tends to go with the flow of things and can be easily influenced, though he claims to always be serious. Out of all the inmates, he is arguably closest to Rock since the two are both stupidly strong, loud, and outgoing.
