Born in 1971 in Ibaraki Prefecture. While attending an American university, ISHIZUKA became enthralled with mountain climbing when his roommate invited him on a trek. After returning to Japan and working for a time as a salaryman, he taught himself to draw and set his sights on becoming a manga artist. His 2001 work This First Step was nominated for the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award in the general division. ISHIZUKA made his debut with the same work in 2002, when it was published in a special issue of Big ComicOriginal.
