The 21-year-old finally sealed his season-long loan switch from Manchester City yesterday after a two-week red-tape delay.
Meshino said: “He is a great player in Japan – his achievements in Scotland were fantastic. A lot of people in Scotland talk about Nakamura so I want to be a player the supporters love, like Celtic supporters do with Nakamura.
“When I was a child I didn't watch much football but when I decided I was coming to Hearts I watched videos of Nakamura so I could learn a bit about Scottish football.
“I was here for the Ross County game two weeks ago and I can help make a difference. The supporters at Hearts are very hardcore and are passionate. I just want to play."
