It was together with Satsuki that he came up with both Hiro and Hinata's name, because they wanted "sunny" names for both of their children. Like Hiro, he seems to be worried about Satsuki’s clumsiness, especially when she used to trip while she was pregnant with Hinata.

He is mostly mentioned by Satsuki and Hiro throughout the series, but he makes two cameo appearances; one in Chapter 75 (or Season 2, Episode 16) where he is happily seen walking with Satsuki in the Sohma estate, and another one in Chapter 78 (or Season 2, Episode 18), where Hiro recalls that when Satsuki almost fell over, both he and his father were shocked.
