Kijin Shinokawa was a talented young photographer who appeared only in the Sailor Moon anime. He was very famous, but lacked the knowledge that there was more to a girl than just youth and beauty.

He was targeted by Nephrite, who implanted the Youma Cameran into his camera. Under the Youma's influence he arranged a photoshoot open to every young girl who wanted to be a model, including Naru and Usagi. Everyone whose picture he took using the Youma-possessed camera was trapped inside of it, but Usagi accidentally managed to escape being photographed.

Sailor Moon managed to kick the camera out of his hands with Sailor Moon Kick before the Youma revealed itself and turned Kijin into a photograph. After Sailor Moon defeated the Youma and saved everyone, she taught him that the true meaning of a girl's beauty is the heart to fight for what she believes in. Kijin later resigned from photography to learn how to understand it better.


  • In the Russian dub, Kijin's given name was incorrectly pronounced as "Takahito," an alternative pronunciation of the kanji characters in his name.
