Higashimura is a student of Hiroshima Kureminami Technical School and a sprinter of the Hiroshima Kureminami Tech Bicycle Club. He is assumed to be either a second or first-year, as he calls Machimiya "senpai", and he functions as a minor background character who appears on the third day of the 41st Summer Inter High, witnessing and taking part in the challenge race between Machimiya Eikichi and Arakita Yasutomo. He tries to pull ahead for Machimiya, but is attacked as Machimiya has entered his Fighting Dog of Kure mode and only thinks of his grudge against Hakone Academy.
Higashimura has short blue hair parted in the middle, and wears glasses that frequently hide his eyes when reflecting light. When seen, his eyes are brown.
He is rather quiet, but speaks more often than the other minor Hiroshima members. Higashimura seems to believe that whatever Machimiya says or does is correct, no matter how vulgar, and gets nervous when he thinks he's failed Machimiya's expectations, such as forgetting his wallet and becoming unlucky due to small mistakes that he's been warned about.
