Genshin Impact's 2.6 Special Program livestream welcomed the head of the Kamisato clan, Kamisato Ayato, as a playable character for the upcoming 2.6 update. In addition, the livestream introduced talented voice actors bringing charisma and mystique to Ayato across its available languages.

So without ado, let's find out more about Kamisato Ayato's English and Japanese voice actors, including their role in Genshin Impact, previous work, and more.

ISHIDA Akara's name is synonymous with voicing anime's greatest characters and a voice many will have recognised. More specifically, his most prominent voice acting role is that of Gaara of the Desert from the Naruto anime, but he has since built an incredible filmography stretching back to 1987.

He was chosen as the most popular voice actor in the Animage Anime Grand Prix 2004 and won the Best Supporting Character (male) award at the Seiyu Awards 2007. Travelers will now be able to listen to him in Genshin Impact as Ayato's voice.
