Characteristics of play

It has the characteristic of having a fast attack by sticking to the base in the front team, and it is characterized by counterplay of both hands that aggressively shakes off even if the opponent takes the initiative. On the other hand, it is not a counter that matches the ball of the opponent like Kenta Matsudaira of the same play style, but a counter that swings itself off, which is very aggressive. There are also creative plays such as a cut block where the opponent's drive rotation is overwhelmed and the wrist makes an intense rotation immediately after bounce. Niwa is often described as "genius" in the media because the reflexes that can respond to fastballs are required to perform such counterplay. On the other hand, it is often disadvantageous to have a struggle away from the platform due to its small build.

There are few emotions during the game, and there are few guts poses even if you win, but you can show the guts poses on the big stage such as the Olympics and world championships, when you win a close game or a superior player against China etc. is there.
