Even though YAMATO debuted in February, he spent the rest of the year in Mexico. While in Mexico he teamed with KAI, and the experience did wonders for them as they not only improved their skills but also became very charismatic. On July 26th YAMATO won the IWRG Rey Del Ring, beating 29 different wrestlers to come out the victor. Both are set to return in early 2008.
Yamato and KAI returned in early 2008 and immediately began showing the skills they had learned in Mexico. In the Jr. Tag League, Yamato teamed with his friend KAI and even though they came in last they did pick up a big win over over Katsuhiko Nakajima and Ryuji Hijikata. After missing some time due to an injury, he returned in July and formed F4 with Kojima and KAI. At the November Sumo Hall event F4 would take on New Japan, but the New Japan wrestlers would come out victorious.
Wrestling in F4 throughout the year, Yamato didn't have the success in 2009 as he might have hoped as he generally stayed in the mid-card battling the Voodoo Murderers.
In the Jr. Heavyweight Tag League he teamed with KAI, but the team came in last place even though they defeated the eventual winners Minoru and Toshizo. He did even worse in the Jr. Heavyweight League, coming in last place with only a win over Petey Williams. In his biggest match of the year, at Sumo Hall in August he teamed with Kojima and KAI to defeat NOAH's team of Kenta Kobashi, Tsuyoshi Kikuchi, and Akihiko Ito. He did not participate in the Real World Tag League and otherwise had a pretty quiet year.
