Isono (イソノ, Isono) is a man who took part in the eating contest organised in the Land of This.
Isono appears as one of the Chōji's opponents during the eating contest in the Land of This. Isono manages to pass the first two rounds of the contest. Later, he goes to the final round, in a duel with Chōji and Tamao. The duel consisted in eating barbecue. Seeing the speed of his rivals, Isono used his special technique, Lethal Juggler, allowing him to cook food with one hand and eat the food with the other. As Chōji had to be the second in the contest, Shikamaru avoided his victory, making Isono the winner and a house was given to him as a prize.
After having won the eating contest, Isono was showed to be a kind man by complimenting his opponents. Later in a private rematch, he showed a childish competitive side against Tamao and Chōji, even going as far as to physically butting heads with Tamao.
Isono is a thinly built elderly man with grey hair on the sides of his head, while the top of his head was bald. He usually wear a loose brown kimono with a dark grey rim over a green undershirt.
Isono is ambidextrous, which he uses to his advantage in eating competitions, cooking his food with one hand and eating with the other.
