Shingo Yamamoto is the one and only contestant who has entered in every Ninja Warrior competition. Shingo Yamamoto resides in Tokyo, where he works as a Gas Station Area Manager at Hasegawa Service Station. We can see that throughout his entries in Ninja Warrior, he goes through a steady promotion with his work. His job title changes from Gas Station Worker in the 5th competition, to Gas Station Chief in the 6th, to Area Manager in the 13th. However, because of his increasing job responsibilities, Yamamoto started to lose more time to train for Ninja Warrior. He ended up training at very late hours since he would get held up at his job. Yamamoto built his own home prior to the 17th competition, that is designed so that Yamamoto can train for Ninja Warrior around the house (for obstacles such as the spider walk, rope climb, and body prop) Yamamoto wears his gas station uniform in every competition except the first (he wore a track uniform since he was also involved in track and field). Famous for losing his cap at the Rolling Log obstacle in the first stage.

Yamamoto’s goal is Total Victory, as any one else’s might be, and although he has never gained [Total Victory->, he maintains a very optimistic view throughout his challenges. Yamamoto seems to truly enjoy the challenges itself, and although disappointed in some of his scores, was never disgruntled by any of them. Regardless of suffering from a dislocation of his left shoulder and lower back pains, Yamamoto still challenges and continues to leave a steady record of good scores.
