Being Hyuga's best friend, Wakashimazu and him have played soccer together since childhood. However, a car accident made him unable to play until Meiwa's match against Furano. He used to be a karate fighter before becoming a goalkeeper. Known as the “Karate Keeper ”, Ken uses his karate skills and speed to his advantage as a goalkeeper. A cool guy, Ken is faithful to his best friends, Hyuga and Sawada. He is a bit conceited at first, though. Ken is calm and can read one team’s tactics very quickly.
Wakashimazu followed Hyuga to the Toho Academy, becoming a regular the second year. Wakashimazu's father wanted him to focus more on karate and creat his own dojo, as he never managed to win the soccer national tournament. Therefore, Wakashimazu was determined to win the national tournament to keep on playing soccer. He also became Toho's captain during Hyuga's absence and for the time he was put on the bench. Wakashimazu managed to keep on playing soccer thanks to a shared victory with Nankatsu. After the tournament, he was chosen as the regular goal keeper of the All Japan Jr. Youth team. As Wakabayashi joined the team, he trained fiercely, thinking to be in competition with him. But, injured against Hamburg, his injury awakened and even worsened during the match against France, thus he wasn't able to play the final match.
Winning the tournament 3 times in a row with Toho and Hyuga, after the test matches against Holland, Wakashimazu, like most of the other Japanese, wanted to focus on the Japanese Youth team. However, after a quarrel with coach Mikami about the regular goal keeper position, he changed his mind, left the team and joined the J-league, in the Yokohama Flugels team. Progressing individually in the J-league, he still showed worries over All Japan Youth, and even wanted to play during a pinch, before seeing Wakabayashi on the field. Helping Hyuga with his mother's hospital expenses thanks to the money he earned in the J-league, he was convinced to go back to the team.
In Golden-23, he became a forward and performed very well. He scored a goal in the friendly match against Nigeria and performed numerous post play.
