Hiyama Kiyoteru (氷山キヨテル) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd., and was released in December 2009. His voice is provided by Japanese male singer Kiyoshi Hiyama (比山貴咏史, Hiyama Kiyoshi).


He and Kaai Yuki were released as "student" and "teacher" VOCALOIDs.


His surname "Hiyama" seems to be taken from his provider's name ("Kiyoshi Hiyama"). His Ice Mountain name of "Ice Teru" is a play on words; "Hiyama" (氷山) means "ice mountain".


Kiyoteru is meant to be portrayed as a sensei (teacher), dressed in a formal . Kiyoteru's tie clip is a motif of Yamaha's electric upright bass SLB100 and his glasses are ZS92001A by Zoff.[2]

In his depictions as member of Ice Mountain, he appears with a more rebel and informal appearence.


Kiyoteru is a teacher. He participates in a rock band called Ice Mountain on weekends, with the stage name "Ice Mountain Teru". According to the book Ice Mountain, the default configuration for his software package happens to be Kiyoteru's vocals as a rookie singer. He is also said to be good at mathematics.
