Takiguchi attended an all-boys high school, and during his senior year, he was scouted to become a model.

His final appearance before his death was in the musical Seishun Aoharu Tetsudō, which ended its run on November 4, 2019.
Takiguchi died from heart failure on November 13, 2019 at the age of 34. Prior to his death, Takiguchi had been preparing to appear in the stage plays Meijiza no Hen: Kirin ni No-ru in December 2019 and Mankai Stage: A3! August 2020 in January 2020. Takiguchi's funeral was held privately with close relatives.
