CHILDHOOD:
As a child, she’s never really felt uncomfortable trying different things. In elementary school, she was in all sorts of stage plays, films, and video reenactments. She’s always had the type of personality that wants to do everything, and that has never gone away. [x]

FAMILY:
She got married in 2017 and gave birth to a son on March 8, 2018.

SCHOOL/EDUCATION: 
She’s always loved cooking, which is something she is enjoying about being a housewife – waking up early every morning to make her husband a lunch box. She previously went to a cookery school, but dropped out after joining BiS. Because she only graduated from junior high school, she can’t work in the field as she has no proper qualifications. In 2017, with her new found free time, after getting married, she kick started her studies to become a dietitian. [x]

IDOL HISTORY:
Before joining BiS, she was in a band for about a year and a half. With no fixed members, it began to feel more like she was a solo act, with various people performing alongside her. She wanted to be in a stable band that goes on tours, to all sorts of places, together. [x]

It was only after joining BiS that she researched idol groups on YouTube. She knew straight away that she wouldn’t be like them. [xShe left BiS December 20, 2011, but did return for their final disbanding live on July 8, 2014.

After leaving BiS, she became the vocalist for the band Morphine Tokyo, from 2012 – 2015. The group went on haitus as Yukiko was admitted into a psych ward after feeling suicidal. Upon being discharged, she didn’t leave her home for a month. After Morphine Tokyo officially disbanded, she formed another band called The End alongside the composer of BiS’s song ‘nerve’, miifuu. They were active from 2015 – 2017.

In August 2018, she announced her intentions to form and produce her own idol group, alongside songstress miifuu. Auditions were open until August 12 for girls under the age of 23. The base salary is 40,000 yen and 10 – 30% commission from all goods sold. This group later debuted under the name キミノマワリ。/ Kimi no Mawari. She stood down from the role of producer on May 18, 2019.
