Yamanobe was a Japanese man with a slightly portly body type. He had a large beard and brown hair. He was seen wearing orange excavation gear and a red safety helmet.
Yamanobe was seen assisting Reijiro and his wife on a expedition to some ice caves deep within the Himalayas. Once there, Yamanobe and the others accidentally awaken a group of demons. As the demons break free of their frozen tombs, a chunk of ice comes flying down and crushes Yamanobe, presumably killing him.
