Both Kiji and his twin brother Sada seem to have very cheerful dispositions and are often seen smiling. The two brothers also tend to sing while they work or if they speak they say the same thing.
Kiji has short black hair that hangs around his face with a topknot. He wears a simple outfit with an apron-like suit over it along with a white sash, wrist warmers and simple shinobi sandals.
Paradise Life on a Boat
While on a mission, Kiji , his brother Sada, and Bandō encountered Sakura Haruno, Ino Yamanaka, Chōji Akimichi along with Naruto Uzumaki who were trying to complete their mission to gather herbs from the Nanakusa Island. Because they were on a similar mission, and had already gathered most of the provisions on the island, they offered to allow the shinobi from Konohagakure to pay for some of what they had gathered, but their offer was refused. Claiming that they could gather everything before them, they set out, reaching all the locations before the Konoha shinobi could.
When the teams met up having reached their final stop on the island, Kiji and his team having retrieved the final things on their list are attacked by a giant lizard and are subsequently rescued by Naruto. Grateful to him, Bandō offered some of their harvest from the island to them free of charge, something that shocked Kiji and his brother. As the grateful Konoha shinobi left, they asked him why he would do such a thing to which he told them that he was willing to take a loss now for future pay-offs later.
