Takahiro Yamada (山田 貴洋 Yamada Takahiro?) (August 19, 1977) is the bass player and backing singer of the Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation. Yamada met fellow band members Masafumi Gotō and Kensuke Kita while attending a music club of Kanto Gakuin University in 1996, with drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi joining the band shortly after.
While Masafumi acts the main songwriter of the band, Yamada has provided lyrics for certain songs. He retains a degree in literature and his favourite bands are The Beatles, Oasis, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Pet Shop Boys. The band once had the opportunity to meet the Gallagher brothers while opening for a tour Oasis once held in Japan. The brothers turned out to be quite nicer than they expected. Noel Gallagher in particular reportedly told AKG to, “Keep rocking.”
