  • Native name: 山下智久
  • Given name: Aoki Tomohisa
  • Also Known as: YamaP, YamaPi, Pi-chan, Tomo, やました ともひさ,

Yamashita Tomohisa, also widely known as Yamapi, is a Japanese idol, actor, and singer. He is active as a solo artist and a former member of the Japanese boyband NEWS.

He joined the Japanese talent agency, Johnny & Associates, in 1996 at the age of 11 and made his official CD debut with NEWS in 2004. He debuted as a solo artist in 2006 with the hit single "Daite Senorita". Yamashita graduated from Meiji University's faculty of commerce in the fall of 2008 with a degree in marketing.

He released his first solo album entitled Supergood, Superbad on January 26, 2011. Like all of his previous releases, the album debuted at top of the Oricon weekly charts.

As of August 2020, Yamashita has been suspended by Johnny & Associates from acting/singing for an undefined amount of time due to proven allegations of drinking with underage girls in a group setting with Kamenashi Kazuya on July 30th, 2020. Both he and Kamenashi claim to have not known their ages. On October 31, 2020, he left Johnny & Associates to pursue a career overseas.

On March 21, 2021, he was appointed as ambassador of 'BVLGARI', and in May of the same year, he was selected as the Japanese ambassador of 'Dior Beauty'.

On November 25, 2021, he released his first photo book "Circle".
