IDOL HISTORY:
Ever since elementary school, she was on a set track to a private high school. After thinking over what she really wanted to do with her life, she decided to quit, and began auditioning to become an idol. [x]

Her first successful audition got her a job as a model for a certain candy maker. She tried so hard to make it work out, but after so much time passed with no work, she decided to leave. When she attended the BiS formation audition, she was really desperate. All her friends were passing their exams, so she became worried about her future. She was at a loss of what to do, not knowing if she would attend a vocational school or something. Her mother was very suppotive, and encouraged her to keep at it if it’s what she really wants. [x]

She left BiS after disagreeing with Pour Lui on the direction the group was going. After the Paprika video, which features the members kissing and headbanging with stockings over their heads, she began to disapprove of the groups increasingly un-idol like behaviour. The last straw was hearing the plans for the My lxxx music videos, where members would run naked through Japan’s famous suicide forest. She quit before the filming of the video. [x]

POST BiS:
She performed with BiS once more at their final disbanding live July 8 2014.

She went on to form/produce Akishibu Project. She was a part of the group from October 2012 – May 11, 2014.

In 2015, she formed a duo group named BPM15Q with herself (now performing as Ichigo Rinahamu) and Nicamoq. On Nicamoq’s departure in December 2016, the group underwent huge changes. Come January 2017 the group name changed to CY8ER and they currently have 5 members.

Despite CY8ER being Rinahamu’s main focus since 2017, she still went on to form a further 2 groups and acted as producer: DOPING BERRY (2016 – 2017) and Strawberry Syndrome who have been on hiatus since July 2017.

She also does modelling, is a DJ, and has her record label – ICHIGO STYLE.
