Hozumi Kohinata (小日向 穂積, Kohinata Hozumi) is one of the main heroes of the Prince of Stride visual novel game and one of the main characters of the Prince of Stride: Alternative anime series. He is a second year student at Honan Academy and is one of the stride club's runners. He is voiced by Kensho Ono (Japanese) and Clifford Chapin (English).
Hozumi has a rather short, thin figure with a noticeably girly look about him, thus causing him to have to cross-dress as girl for Diane's company. He has short light blonde hair with the bangs parted with one piece in the middle and the rest on the either side of his head and light blue eyes.
He wears a white jersey (with a thick blue and thin red line running across the shoulders until the elbows and Honan Academy's emblem on the left) and a thin yellow scarf around his neck. He wears it with short black leggings that have stars printed on the side, puffy yellow shorts, and white-cyan running shoes. He also wears a cyan coloured fanny pack with a black cat key-chain. His bangs are also pinned above his head with clips.
His school uniform consists of the black school gakuen which contains both jacket and pants, that has a slightly unbuttoned white dress shirt underneath, a light blue sweater and shoes.
Hozumi appears androgynous and cute on the outside, but actually loves telling bad jokes. He is courageous and never stops smiling even if he's injured. He is also the caring older brother of three younger siblings. Hozumi has stated that he wants to work in the theatre after finishing school as he collects animal plushies. His technique is such that he relies more on acrobatic parkour skills rather than running speed to overtake others, thus being touted as "The Trickster of Hōnan".
Hozumi has above average running speed, great parkour skills, and average stamina.

— To himself
- Likes: Grape-flavoured rice jelly, iced green tea, stage acting (he even got Ayumu in on it because he never managed to start a drama club as a side-club), making pretend coffee and watching TV.
- Dislikes: Second-hand smoking from smokers that walk around the streets.
- In episode 8, Kohinata got many Kung Fu actors and fictional Street Fighter characters mixed up, including Lee and Ken from Street Fighter, Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan.
