Fujiwara was born in Tokyo. He spent the majority of his childhood in Iwate Prefecture. In high school, he handled vocals in a band he formed with his friend Kotaro Furuichi, future guitarist of rock band The Collectors.

Around 18, he moved back to Tokyo on his own and joined the Bungakuza acting school. He spent the 1980s performing in several theater troupes while working odd jobs. Fujiwara was introduced to his first voice acting agency, Ken Production, in the early 1990s. The first TV anime in which he appeared as a regular was Yokoyama Mitsuteru Sangokushi, but his breakout role was Hiroshi Nohara in Crayon Shin-chan.

In November 2006, he left Ken Production and founded his own agency, AIR AGENCY Co., Ltd, of which he also served as the Representative Director of the company. Aside from talent management, the company went on to release original drama and situation CDs through its child company Air Label, as well as produce live events. in 2010, Fujiwara made his own sound directorial debut in Kakkokawaii Sengen!

Fujiwara was a regular lecturer at the Japan Newart College since 2008.

In August 2016, Air Agency announced that he was going on hiatus in order to undergo medical treatment for a then-unspecified illness. He officially resumed work in June 2017. Fujiwara died of cancer on April 12, 2020.

RIP my fellow cultured ass man and there will be no other cultured ass man than him !!!! Even though I'm half joking and love almost all of his roles, Prison school chairman and Gintama's Hattori are my favourite.
