Life

Tomiyama dropped out of Nihon University's art department. With his distinctively tender voice, Tomiyama would portray numerous kinds of roles during his career, ranging from heroic, comedic, young, and old. At 9:07 AM on September 25, 1995, Tomiyama suddenly died of pancreatic cancer in Shinjuku, Tokyo at the age of 56. In 2007, Tomiyama was posthumously awarded the Special Achievement Award of the first Seiyū Awards.

Tomiyama was a Scorpius, had a blood type of A, and enjoyed river fishing.

Successors

After Tomiyama's death, a number of seiyū took over his ongoing roles.

It should be noted that in Harlock Saga, in addition to replacing Tomiyama as Tochiro, Kōichi Yamadera also supplied the voice of Captain Harlock which up to that point was done by Makio Inoue who is still living.
