Kids' Dream arc
Kawakami proved to be very skillful as an elementary school keeper, since thanks to him his team was able to go to the finals. He even goes as far as not allowing any goals against him until he met Tsubasa.
During the finals of the Shizuoka qualifiers Tournament, his team, the Shimizu, plays a defensive 1-4-4-2. They would triple-marked goal getter Tsubasa, and the defensive void was well covered by Kawakami himself, who is Shimizu's own genius keeper, while the rest of them would counter-attack off with tackles, then swam together to collect the high ball to defeat opponent keeper Wakabayashi who was not at his best. Even by putting Nankatsu's top players on a pinch, the latter was able to get the upper hand and Shimizu was defeated 0-3.
