He worked for the Japanese National Railways and then became a farmer to raise vegetables and racehorses. Shiro retired from farming in his 50s to start mountain climbing as a hobby. He climbed mountains all over the country, which includes the Hidaka Mountains and Mount Fuji, until he was in his 80s.

Shiro moved into a local nursing home in 2014 where he enjoyed watching live horse racing and talking with the other residents. Shirō Moriyama passed away on 19 March 2022 in Shinhidaka, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan, due to natural causes.
