The photo is between 1936-38 and I would say that he is Hasegawa's adjutant when he commanded the China Area Fleet and the 3rd Fleet.

Was he 長谷川清 Hasegawa Kiyoshi?
Looks like 伊藤整一 Ito Seiichi, Commanding Officer of 2nd Fleet.

大友文吉 Otomo Bunkichi didn't reach the LADM position.
山代勝守 Yamashiro Katsumori also didn't reach the LADM position.
