Inaba Atsuko (稲葉貴子) is a Japanese pop singer formerly within Hello! Project. She was also a member of UP-FRONT PROMOTION and was one of the founding members of Hello! Project. She was also known for being an MC at concerts.


Inaba Atsuko began her career as a Japanese idol with female group Osaka Performance Doll from 1993 to 1996 and did 6 singles and 2 albums with them. She released only one single in 1996. It was released when Inaba was in the group and was available only at their events.

Later on, she received training in Atlanta, Georgia. When she went back to Japan, she then joined the new Hello! Project group Taiyou to Ciscomoon in 1999 and stayed till its end in late 2000. From December 2000 to May 2001, UP-FRONT AGENCY held an audition for a new group titled "Inaba Atsuko Shin Unit Audition" (稲葉貴子新ユニットオーディション), open to women in between the ages of 17 to 20, however no winners were selected.

After that she stayed in Hello! Project as a dancer at concerts and chorist, performing choruses for many H!P releases but didn’t have any of her own. She also taught choreography to Morning Musume. Without a being a soloist or in a group, she still appeared in the temporary Hello! Project shuffle units: Aoiro 7, 7AIR, H.P. All Stars and Puripuri Pink.


From October 3-11, Inaba appeared in the stage play "Heisei Revolution ~Back to the Byakkotai~" alongside Yoshizawa Hitomi, Satoda Mai, Shibata Ayumi, Korenaga Miki, and Fukuda Kanon.[1]


On October 30, It was announced that Inaba Atsuko’s contract with UFP, the parent company to Hello! Project, had ended.[1](According to the official announcement, she wanted to see the world from another angle) She was the last remaining member of Taiyou to Ciscomoon to graduate from UP-FRONT PROMOTION.


On October 30, Inaba Atsuko’s contract with Up-Front Agency expired.

"Since her debut in April 1999 in “Taiyo & Ciscomoon (later T&C Bomber)”, she has been busy working as a talent with our company, taking part in Hello Project activities, concerts, stage plays, and more, but now, after she consulted with management about her future direction, it has been decided to discontinue her contract for now."

[From Inaba Atsuko to the fans]

Thank you so much for all of your support.

I now have some information to give you all.

I’ve been active in show business for 16 years now, and I’ve now decided I want to change my viewpoint and see the world from a different angle.

So making use of all the experiences I’ve built up in the past, from November I’ll be moving on with the support of the company.

I want to work hard to make this new start, learn a lot, experience new things, and grow further.

So I hope you’ll all watch over me kindly from now on.

I know we’ll meet again, and I look forward to that time.

Inaba Atsuko
