On May 9, 2000, at around 4:00am, Shiozawa fell down the stairway of his home. At the time, he thought he was okay and could shake it off, but at around 10:00am he suddenly felt worse. He later fell unconscious and was rushed to the hospital. The next day, at 12:54am he died of a cerebral contusion. He was 46. A Buddhist funeral has held at Housen Temple in Nakano, Tokyo.
