Kazami is an agent from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department Public Security Bureau, with the rank of Assistant Inspector. He first appeared in movie 20 as a PSB officer working together with Rei Furuya on the Curaçao incident. He was later made canon by Gosho Aoyama in file 998 of the manga. He works inside the PSB building and has his own office. He is Rei's superior and has at his disposition number of officers (of whom some are recurring). He has a high authority amongst officers and collegues and can act on his own. He investigates main cases involving public security which sometimes is directly linked to the Black Organization. He has a Nissan Skyline R34, similar to Takagi's, but sometimes uses Rei's car (although Rei is the driver). He sometimes go to the bar but more oftenly goes to the restaurant to eat curry which is his favorite dish but it still is sometimes too spicy for him.
His personality is really unique since he is one of the few characters who have inner speeches. He really has a strong reflexion sense but poor deduction skills since he wasn't able to identify who was his videogame partner on his cellphone. He might seems serious and strict at first but it is only in public affairs and while talking to superiors like Hyoe Kuroda who inspires him fear. He is interested in pretty ladies but knows that he is quite old for them and covers his youthness. He stays serious and gives detailed informations while staying harsh on suspects to solve cases quicker, like Curaçao whom he threathens with a gun and Kogoro. He doesn't hesitate to threathen suspects with his gun and to fabricate fake proofs to capture suspects although he will free them once he finds decisive conclusions. Outside of his police life, he remains childish and friendly and grants respect to Rei Furuya to who he follows all of his advices. He hates celery and sometimes, likes to joke.
Yuya is a tall PSB agent always in his green suit and his red tie. He has white skin and poorely shaved hair which are always sassy. He wears oval glasses.
He has the ability to fire a gun but lacks of athletic abilities.
When Rei was looking for Haibara's lost phone strap together with the Detective Boys, Rei called Kazami and asked him to check a window in a train, on which a boy had written his name. Kazami does as he is told and finds out the name for Rei, allowing Rei to conclude the search. Before Kazami can ask what kind of investigation Rei is working on, Rei hangs up the phone.
Non-canon plot overview
Together with Rei, Kazami confronts Curaçao during her break-in and data theft, but she can escape. Later, Kazami shows up at the police hospital and demands the transfer of the amnesiac Curaçao to the Public Security Bureau from Inspector Megure, which Megure reluctantly agrees to due to higher position of the PSB. Afterwards, Kazami is instructed by Rei to bring Curaçao to the top of the ferris wheel of the Tohto Aquarium.
Together with a massive police escort, Kazami brings Curaçao to the aquarium park, instructs to close one entire of the ferris wheel and enters a gondola alone with a handcuffed Curaçao. He tells her that once her memories return, he will torture her until she spills every detail about the NOC list and the Black Organization. But when Curaçao is overcome by her memories and appears to be in pain, Kazami is distracted while calling for help and Curaçao manages to overwhelm him and free herself. An unconscious Kazami is then dragged out and saved from the gondola and the collapsing ferris wheel by Conan. Kazami later regains consciousness and witnesses the transport of Curaçao's corpse from the park.
During the movie credits, Kazami is shown shaking hands with Megure, with Takagi, Sato, and Chiba also being present, presumably making amends with the Metropolitan Police Detectives and thanking them for their help during the attack on the ferris wheel.
Kazami patrolled the Edge of the Ocean Smart City facility on the day before the opening along with several police officers of the PSB. He was then injured in an explosion.
Kazami works as Rei Furuya's subordinate. He follows Rei's orders with little to no questions asked, placing a high amount of trust in his direct superior.
Kazami and Hiromitsu Morofushi knew each other and were comrades.
His last name Kazami (風見) translates as "wind vane". His first name Yuya (裕也) has the meaning "Sum of money".
- His character design is the same used for the foreign spy in Private Eye in the Distant Sea.
