Yamashita Tomohisa (山下 智久) is a member of the J-pop group NewS from Johnny's Entertainment, Inc. He entered Johnny's Entertainment (JE) and became a member of Johnny’s Juniors when he was 11 years old.
He is affectionately called Yamapi (short for Yamashita and pink) by his friends, which is a nickname given to him by Hideaki Takizawa (Tackey & Tsubasa). His closest friends call him Pi, which was first used by Jin Akanishi (KAT-TUN).
Since joining JE, he has been a member of Jr. groups B.I.G., Four Tops, and most recently NewS. Yamashita began to appear in television dramas soon after he joined JE. In 2000, at age 15, his performance in Ikebukuro West Gate Park earned him an award for "Best Supporting Actor".
