Early Life[]

Goto Sayaka was born on August 31, 2003 in Oita, Japan.


On April 2, Goto debuted as an 8th generation member of the Oita-based local idol group SPATIO. She graduated from the group on November 3.[1]

Over the summer, Goto participated in the Hello! Project Shin Member Audition for a chance to join Hello! Project in commemoration of its 20th anniversary and made it to the finals alongside seven others before it was ultimately decided that no one would pass the audition.[2][3]

Following the audition, Goto accepted an invitation to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei and she was introduced alongside six other finalists at the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2017 12gatsu ~Conti→New!~ show on December 10.[4]


On February 9, it was announced that Goto had requested to end her training, therefore leaving Hello Pro Kenshuusei and Hello! Project before she ever performed a full show on stage.[5]
