- WORD
 
"Miyashita plays Jekyll and Hyde"
- Bleep
 
"Somehow elegantly weightless yet utterly bombed out and forceful / The most deviant breakbeat techno of 2015 so far"
- Boomkat
 
"Digital art star, beatsmith / sound artist"
- The Creators Project
 
"Like a dance record cultivated in the dark, nurtured away from conventional genre expectations."
- foxy digitalis
 
"Esoteric excursion / A strange, hypnotic creation that sounds timeless, as if droning on for longer than you’ve been alive."
- Igloo Magazine
 
"It is like an extraordinary Joan Miro's abstract art painting "The Song Of The Vowels"" where symbolic reduction of the flexible and unexamined forms create a thrilling fiction of existentialism. These controversial interpretations that vary among the agility, simplicity, joy, whimsical charm and nightmarish distortions undoubtedly mirror the versatility, intensity and profundity of Yaporigami. His music somehow reflects a current constant stylistic mutation and renewal of Techno scene."
- Secret Thirteen
 
"We quickly realised that his work was some of the most unique music we had heard in some time"
- Stray Landings

"このコメントを書くにあたって…というわけではないが、氏には事前に色々とお話をする機会があった。制作に対するスタンスから美の価値基準に至るまで、決して長いやりとりではなかったが、実のある対話であったと思う。対話の途中で自身の楽曲がいわゆる普通の意味で「音楽的」ではないという発言があり、以前何度か聴かせて頂いた楽曲をイメージすると―決して悪い意味ではなく、確かに…と頷けるものがあったが、今作を全部通して聴いた第一印象は真逆で、”ポップだな”というものであった。何度か聴いていく内に、時間軸に対しての神経の使い方が非常に絶妙で、それによってすんなりと音が入り込んでくるところがポップな印象を与えているのではないか、と自分なりに思い至った。もはや古典的な美術評論といっても差し支えないであろう某論文のタイトルに准えれば、アヴァンギャルドさとキッチュさのバランス感覚が良い(その論文ではキッチュさは忌むべきものとして描かれてはいたが)。さて、くだんの氏とのやりとりでは人によって美の捉え方が異なることの問題にも話が至ったのだが、僕は単純にこの作品を美しいと思うし、恐らくこの作品を手に取る人の大半はそう感じるはずだ。実験的な音の中に、普遍的な美の一端を垣間見ることが出来る良い作品だと思う。"
- Taro Peter Little
 
"私にとってPOPとは様式でも旋律でも和声でもなく、知識/技術/時間/言語の範疇を超えて否が応でも人を魅了し納得させてしまうもののことです。彼のグルーヴ、そしてノイズはPOPです。"
