Yoshikazu Takahashi (Japanese: 高橋良和) is a resident of Sakuragaoka and can often be seen wandering around on Dobuita Street. Despite that he is dressed in his office suit and carrying his briefcase, he recently lost his job and is currently unemployed due to the company he was working at going bankrupt. But he hasn't felt able to tell his wife and children about it, so everyday he leaves the house as normal as if going to work and walks around Dobuita all day until it's time to come home again.
