He was 36 years old.

BABYMETAL guitarist Mikio Fujioka has died at the age of 36.

He fell from height while at an astronomical observatory on December 30, and passed away on January 05 surrounded by members of his family.

"The 'Little' Guitar Kami of #BABYMETAL ‘s #Kamiband has passed away in the METAL GALAXIES," wrote the band.

"We hope that he is now with his GUITAR MASTER A.Holdsworth (renowned guitarist Allan Holdsworth) and enjoying an epic guitar session with him."

"We are the one / Together / We're the only one / You are the one  / Forever"

Mikio was a hugely accomplished performer and guitar teacher, who had performed as part of BABYMETAL's Kami Band since 2013.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, bandmates and fans.
