SCHOOL/EDUCATION:
She admitted in her first solo BiS interview that she is a bit of a stalker. In high school, there was a guy she liked and they were in the same class until the 3rd year. With him in a different class, she would check out their schedule to figure out what day of the week he’d pass by her class. The guy was in the football club and she would always watch from the schoolyard to try and see him. She knew all their time tables and knew when he’d finish practise. [x]

She graduated from Waseda University with a degree in Japanese Literature. From this, she is qualified to teach junior and high school children Japanese. [x]

IDOL HISTORY:
She always dreamt of being an idol from a young age, as she was a big fan of Morning Musume.

Before she officially debuted in BiS, she already wanted to quit. She saw the music video for My Ixxx and the bonus to the first live show was for member’s to sign the fans pants. Recording for her parts had already started, so she recieved a call from Watanabe, saying that the group will be going back to more orthodox ways from now on, so she doesn’t need to worry. She didn’t realise at the time that this was a lie. [xShe eventually left BiS on May 26, 2013, after frequent arguments over the direction the group was taking.

She took part in Miss iD 2014, where she ranked 4th and wont Amaterasu Special Award. Through this, she was able to begin her career as a solo idol and signed with major label Universal Music. In 2015, she switched labels to EMI.

Alongside her solo work, she formed an idol unit, Yufu♬Mari, alongside Dorothy Little Happy member Takahashi Mari. The group was active from May 31, 2014 – August 31, 2014.
