In high school, Sawayaka, Suzuki Keita, and six other students formed a comedian group for a school festival. Afterwards, all the other students gradually left the group with only him and Suzuki remaining.
At some point in his career, he was given the stage name Sawayaka Goro by his friend and mentor Hachimitsu Jiro of the comedian duo Tokyo Dynamite, who was also briefly married to Melon Kinenbi's Saito Hitomi from 2010 to 2011.
In 2010, Sawayaka became a main MC for the SATV information program PINK!SS, starting from the third episode.

He sang and released the song "Usagi tocome (feat. Goro)" with Miyamoto as minor vocals; another version was later released with Miyamoto as lead vocals and Sawayaka as minor vocals. Both versions were included in the mini album Kopinks! Melodies ~star chart~ released on March 20, 2013. Since April 2016, Sawayaka voices the character Gorori on the show's successor Kopinks COSMOS, alongside Onoda Saori and Abe Yumeri who voice the characters Saori and Yumeri.
On January 22, 2014, Sawayaka released his first digital single under his own name, "koi☆otoko", under the Arena Records label.
