Yamashita Tomohisa entered Johnny's Entertainment at age 11 in September of 1996. From there he became a very popular Junior, eventually coming to be the leader of the Juniors. He was a member of the group B.I.G. as well as Four Tops, the former hosts of the The Shounen Club television program. He was pulled from Four Tops into NEWS when the group was formed.

In NEWS, Yamashita is often in the front and center as he is the most popular member. Despite this attention he maintains a silly personality which occasionally prompts his band mates to question whether he is actually human or not. He is good friends with Akanishi Jin of KAT-TUN and Jin's family as well as Nishikido Ryo, Shirota Yuu of D-Boys, and Ikuta Toma formerly of Four Tops.

In 2005 he appeared in the drama Nobuta wo Produce with KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya. The two released a single as the duet Shuuji to Akira acting as their characters from the drama.

During NEWS's hiatus he released a solo single for the drama Kurosagi which sold remarkably well for a solo release. He is also currently enrolled in Meiji University pursuing a degree in Business. He also recently became a regular columnist of Seventeen Magazine.

In summer of 2006 he was put into the promotional group Kitty GYM where he and the Thai duo Golf & Mike were the principal members.

On the 7th of June 2007 there were news about that Kurosagi will be made into a movie and that Yamashita Tomohisa will star again as Kurosaki. Other former cast members will be Horikita Maki and Ichikawa Yui. The movie will premiere the Spring of 2008.
