Masao Harada later used the surname Fujie because he was adopted by the Fujie family. He graduated from the Faculty of Law at Kyoto Imperial University. At the Berlin Olympics he was beaten by his compatriot Naoto Tajima, from the same university, who set a world record. In the long jump, Harada won the Japanese Championship four times (1935-36, 1938-39), and won the triple jump three times (1933, 1939-40). At the 1934 Far Eastern Games he placed second in both events and at the 1935 International University Games he was third in the long jump. In 1934 he also set a Japanese record in the triple jump. Harada was always identified by his glasses, which he had to wear due to extreme short-sightedness. After graduation he joined the Hitachi Company. He died of respiratory failure at the age of 87.
