Josuke Higashikata (東方 仗助, Higashikata Jōsuke?) (助, "suke", may also be read as "Jo") is the main protagonist of Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable.

Josuke is a high school freshman residing in the town of Morioh. Part IV begins as Jotaro Kujo searches for him on behalf of Joseph Joestar, his aging, absent father.


Excuse me... What did you say about my hair?!

—Josuke Higashikata

Josuke is a tall, handsome young man of average build. He wears a small stud in each ear. The feature most important to him is his well-maintained pompadour, styled after that of an unknown man who saved his life as a child.[3] His pompadour has a tendency to become spiky with his mood, such as when he is irritated or angry.

Josuke wears a dark, modified Japanese school uniform. His jacket conforms to his body, extending to the middle of his thigh, and he wears wide-legged pants. He keeps his jacket unbuttoned and pinned aside, revealing a light undershirt with a short zipper on each side of his chest.

Josuke wears a number of metallic/golden emblems. On the left of his collar he wears a modified anchor, and on his right a row of two small hearts. Pinning his open jacket to his chest on his right is a peace sign (☮), and on the left is a heart (occasionally enclosing a palm, like on Jotaro's hat). He wears a gold band at both wrists, above his sleeves (under more elaborate pieces in several illustrations).

Valuing footwear, Josuke wears a pair of Mr. Junko original socks and ¥25,000 black Bally shoes.[4]

Josuke's most common color scheme consists of a dark blue uniform (like the one Jotaro wears in Part III) and a green undershirt.
