Career

He started up his professional career at Tokyo Verdy where he won the Emperor's Cup in 2004 and the Japanese Super Cup in 2005.[2] In the same year they got relegated from the J-League which marked his end in Tokyo. He signed for Omiya Ardija at the start of the 2006 season and quickly became their star player.[3] After the 2006 World Cup he played his first international match.

The clubs success were limited and after the 2008 season, he was offered the chance to go on trial at Norwegian club Stabæk. His trial was a success and in February 2009 was loaned out to the Norwegian champions.[4] He will wear the number 10 shirt, recently worn by Veigar Páll Gunnarsson.[5]

On 8 March, he made his official debut for Stabæk in the 2009 Superfinal where the league champions won 3–1 against cup champions Vålerenga, with Kobayashi playing an important part, getting on the score-sheet with a free kick and showed trickery with the ball.

On 27 January 2010, Kobayashi signed on free transfer to the Greek team Iraklis F.C. for 18 months.[6]

National team

He represented Japan U20 at the FIFA World Youth Championship in 2003, where they reached the quarter-finals before being beaten by eventual champions Brazil. He did not start their first group game, a loss against Colombia, but he started the next two which they won to secure a top spot, including a win against England. He further played in the round of 16 win against South Korea, but had to be replaced early in the quarter finals.[1]. He also represented Japan U20 at the AFC Youth Championship in AFC Youth Championship 2002, where they came second, after losing 1–0 in against South Korea in the final.

He made his first cap for Japan national football team seniors in a friendly match against Trinidad and Tobago on 9 August 2006, coming on as a 56th minute substitute for Koji Yamase[7]
