Kiyomiya began training at the Pro Wrestling NOAH Dojo in March 2015[1] and made his debut on December 9, losing to Hitoshi Kumano at Winter Navigation.[3] Kiyomiya faced Kumano again the next day, losing once again.[4] Kiyomiya would go winless throughout the rest of 2015, losing to Taiji Ishimori,[5] Quiet Storm,[6] Genba Hirayanagi[7] and Yoshinari Ogawa.[8][9] He teamed with Yoshihiro Takayama at Destiny 2015 in a losing effort against Ogawa and Kumano.[10]

Kiyomiya would remain winless until March 17, when he teamed with Mitsuhiro Kitamiya and Hitoshi Kumano to defeat Kyu Mogami, Ayato Yoshida and GO Asakawa at a TAKA and Taichi Produce show for his first professional win. On that same show, Kiyomiya participated in a battle royal, which was eventually won by Takashi Iizuka.[11] On March 27 at We Are Suzuki-Gun 2, Kiyomiya teamed with Hitoshi Kumano to defeat NJPW's Teruaki Kanemitsu and Hirai Kawato.[12] On May 19, Kiyomiya debuted for NJPW at Lion's Gate Project 2, defeating Kawato once again, this time in a singles match.[13] The first big win of Kiyomiya's career would come at We Are Suzuki-Gun 3 on June 18, where he outlasted Taiji Ishimori, Quiet Storm, Akitoshi Saito, Muhammad Yone, Andy Dalton, Eclipse, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Hitoshi Kumano, Ryo Kawamura, Shiro Tomoyose and Yoshinari Ogawa to win Minoru Suzuki's 48th Birthday Anniversary Royal Rumble Match, awarding him the right to a match against Suzuki.[14] The two wrestled to a no-contest on July 16.[15] Kiyomiya debuted for the Kaientai Dojo promotion on July 23, teaming with GO Asakawa in a loss to Taishi Takizawa and Kotaro Yoshino.[16] Kiyomiya teamed with the ace of Pro Wrestling NOAH, Naomichi Marufuji on August 24, defeating Minoru Suzuki and Takashi Sugiura.[17] Kiyomiya wrestled again for NJPW on September 1 at Lion's Gate Project 3, representing NOAH alongside Masa Kitamiya, Katsuhiko Nakajima, Maybach Taniguchi, and Go Shiozaki in a ten-man tag team match where they were defeated by NJPW's Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Satoshi Kojima, Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi and Katsuyori Shibata.[18] Kiyomiya again competed for K-DOJO on October 1, teaming with GO Asakawa and Dinosaur Takuma in a loss to Saburo Inematsu, Daigoro Kashiwa and Kotaro Nasu.[19] Kiyomiya was defeated in a rematch against Minoru Suzuki on October 23.[20] Kiyomiya entered the 2016 Global League Tournament, finishing last in his block with zero wins and zero points.[21]

On January 9, 2017, Coming of Age Day in Japan, Kiyomiya unsuccessfully faced Takashi Sugiura in a singles match, however, afterwards, Sugiura, impressed with Kiyomiya, offered him a handshake and the chance to form an alliance. Kiyomiya accepted, stating that he is ready to take the next step in his career, aligning himself with Sugiura and turning heel in the process.[22] The following day, Kiyomiya debuted a new all black ring attire along with a more vicious ring style and ruthless attitude in a loss to Hi69.[23] Kiyomiya, now a fully fledged heel teamed with Sugiura on February 24 to defeat GHC Tag Team Champions Kenoh and Masa Kitamiya after Kenoh turned on Kitamiya to align himself with Sugiura and Kiyomiya.[24] Kiyomiya teamed up with Takuya Nomura in the 2017 Global Tag League spanning from April 22 to May 4. Kiyomiya and Nomura finished with four points defeating Robbie E and Bram by forfeit as well as getting a pin on Cody Hall and Randy Reign on the final day of the league to prevent Hall and Reign from entering a three-way tie for first place.[25] On May 4, the day of the final, Kiyomiya was pinned by Nomura and refused a handshake following the match.[26] On June 5 it was announced by Noah that Kiyomiya would be going to Canada on a learning excursion where he will train under Scott D'Amore. His final match in Noah before exiting for his excursion was set for the Great Voyage In Fukushima show on June 25 where he would face Kenoh.[27] which he lost.
