Origin

Yosuke Hanamura was born in Tokyo, Japan and lived in the city for most of his life. His father works in management in the chain of stores throughout Tokyo called Junes. With the opening of the biggest store yet in Inaba, his father was transferred to the country side to oversee the store. Yosuke was roped in to helping out at the store and started at Yasogami High School when he first moved in. He became friends with Chie Satonaka, Yukiko Amagi, and Saki Konishi, referring to the latter as his senpai. Despite not being a part of the store being built, most people in town hate him since Junes took away business from the original shopping district in town. He becomes one of the first people to welcome Yu Nakumari when he moved to town.
