Known as Tensai, Japanese for "Genius", from his youth days, Ono is one of the biggest stars in Asian football, known for his vision, technique and superb passing. Although his primary position is attacking midfielder, he can play anywhere in the midfield, including defensive midfield and either wing.

Ono grew up in the Japanese soccer hotbed[citation needed] of Shizuoka Prefecture and began his professional career with Urawa Red Diamonds of the J. League in 1998. The same year, he became the youngest member of Japan's 1998 FIFA World Cup team at age 18 and made one appearance as a substitute.
He caught the attention of foreign clubs with his performance at the 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship in Nigeria, where he captained the Japanese Under-20 side that reached the final. But later that year, he suffered a severe knee injury in a qualification match for the 2000 Olympics with Japan's Under-23 side, forcing him to miss the rest of the season and olympic qualifying. He did not regain full fitness in time for the Olympics in Sydney and Urawa was relegated to Division 2 in his absence. But rather than move to another J-League club or abroad, Ono stayed with Urawa for the 2000 season and helped the club return to top flight.
After a strong performance at the 2001 Confederations Cup, Ono moved to Feyenoord Rotterdam of the Dutch Eredivisie in 2001. In his first season, he helped Feyenoord win the 2002 UEFA Cup, making him the first Japanese player in history to win a Europacup. However, a string of injuries kept him sidelined for long stretches. After he missed the majority of 2004-2005, his fourth at De Kuip, the club was forced to sell him.
On January 13, 2006, after an unsuccessful attempt to stay in European football, Ono returned to J. League, agreeing a 3-year deal with his old club, Urawa Red Diamonds.
When fit, Ono is an ever-present member of the Japanese national team. After his appearance in the 1998 World Cup, he was a key member of the Japanese squad in the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He has represented Japan at every age level starting with the U-16 team, and was one of three overage selections at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Although injuries limited Ono to just one appearance in the final round of the qualifiers for the 2006 World Cup and he missed the Confederations Cup in 2003 and 2005, he played in his third World Cup finals in Germany.[7]
Since returning to Urawa, he had suffered from repeated injuries and failed to claim a regular place. In the 2008 January transfer window, Ono returned to Europe, signing with Bundesliga's VfL Bochum. On February 3, 2008, Ono made his Bundesliga debut in an away game against Werder Bremen and he had two assists that helped Bochum with their first ever win over Bremen at Weserstadion. Unfortunately Ono suffered different injuries in the following two years in Bochum and could only play 34 matches in which he gave four assists for the club. In the autumn of 2009 he received two yellow-red cards in two successive matches.
In the winter break 2009/2010 Ono asked for the admission to return to Japan for personal reasons. Different Japanese clubs were interested in the midfielder. VfL Bochum allowed him to leave under the condition that they could find a successor.
After the signing of Miloš Marić for his position, Ono could leave Bochum.[9] On January 9, 2010 Ono returned to his native Shizuoka Prefecture by signing for Shimizu S-Pulse.[10] The transfer fee were rumored 300.000 Euro for the midfielder whose contract in Bochum expired in the summer of 2010. In an interview he declared that the main reason for his transfer was his will to reunite with his wife and children that still lived in Japan.
