Born on November 27, 1998 in Hyogo. Former center of Team M until her graduation in June 2012. Rejoined the group in October 2013 through a special audition. Was offered a position on Team M on February 2014 but declined, and remained as a kenkyuusei until her promotion to Team N in February 2015.


  • The Ace: Of Team M until she graduated.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Jo
  • The Bus Came Back: Graduated from NMB in June 2012 to center on her studies, but after seeing her old teammates on TV, she decided to rejoin. She was promoted back, this time to Team N, on February 2015.
  • Catchphrase: "Peanuts", a Running Gag in "Geinin!"
  • Demoted to Extra: She was a staple of NMB's senbatsu during her Team M times, but since her comeback she only has been featured in B-sides. This is in part due to her status as a kenkyuusei until February 2015 to her own decision, as she didn't want to be favoured before other members who have been in the group longer than her. She made it back to senbatsu in "Dorian Shounen".

  • Trickster Mentor: She can be silly at times, but she truly cares for NMB.
