Tomozo is the only bald family member, and has a slightly darker tan compared to the other female members, almost matching to his son's own.
He frequently wears a grey-blue long-sleeve shirt and dark green pants with black shoes. In the summer, his long-sleeve shirt is switched with a short-sleeved version.
Tomozo has a rather approachable demeanor, and contributes often to family discussions, sometimes drawing upon his own past experiences as a child. He is also prone to causing embarrassment for the family in moments where he makes awkward statements or actions, sometimes to further embarrassment from non-family members or strangers.
He is quite sensitive to some of the things that others may say; there are notable times when he sinks into a quick depression or state of shock after hearing something absurd that Maruko mentions to him, earning awkward stares from other present characters.
