Hoji has dark brown curly hair and dark brown eyes. His regular attire consists of a black-and-red collared T-shirt with an orange undershirt, a pair of blue overalls, and tan cowboy boots.
Hoji is a gentle and honest character who remains loyal to Wakiya. He is shown to lack confidence at times, for instance when he asks to forfeit the match against Valt Aoi because he thought that Wakiya was implying that Hoji was a weak blader. He is also a very determined person when it comes to achieving his goals.
Hoji has been known to be a very calm person and will often calm Wakiya down when he gets frustrated.
Given that he is the eldest of his siblings, Hoji is very responsible and gets along very well with younger children.

Wakiya is Hoji's best friend whom he addresses as Bocchan (坊っちゃん) in the Japanese version. Hoji's father works at the company that Wakiya's father owns, which is how the two met. They train together often and have been doing so for a long time, and due to this are very close friends. Wakiya also taught Hoji how to beyblade. In the English dub, Wakiya once told Hoji that he was like a brother to him.
In episode 45, Hoji was able to get Wakiya to calm down after the latter lost to Shu in the Individual Tournament, stating that he knew how hard he worked to win that battle, and that he was not someone who would just give up after a single setback. After these words, Wakiya felt visibly touched, and recovered his spirit - then telling Hoji that it was no use waiting around since they had to keep training and getting stronger.
Hoji is shown to treat Valt's younger siblings well, likely stemming from the fact that he himself has four younger siblings. At one point, he helped the twins rescue a kitten from a tree.
- "Wakiya's starting to lose his temper. Wyvron's the stronger Bey, but if Wakiya starts questioning his own power, how will he win." -during Valt's rematch with Wakiya
- "Sorry, Valt. You've got guts, but Wakiya's in a whole new league."
- "By the way, Wakiya's afraid of heights." telling the group about Wakiya's acrophobia.
- "After everything you've been through, don't just throw it away! I...I know you, we trained a lot together, I know how much effort you put into this. You're not the type of Blader that throws in the towel after one minor setback. You're different. It's tough times like this that help you improve. So what if you lost? You'll keep getting stronger." -giving Wakiya a speech to snap him out of his funk after losing to Shu
