Asami (あさみ), real name being Kimura Asami (木村麻美), is a YouTuber under the moniker Achami (あちゃみ), and a former Japanese pop singer. She is a former member of Hello! Project as a member of Country Musume, in which she was the groups second leader. She was also a member of Hello! Project's futsal team, Gatas Brilhantes H.P..

She graduated from Hello! Project at the Hello! Project 2007 Winter ~Shuuketsu! 10th Anniversary~ concert on January 28, 2007, alongside fellow member Miuna. According to her graduation comments, she was very fond of dogs, so she considered pursuing a career involving animals, and planned on staying in Tokyo. She later, however, returned to Hokkaido and became a YouTuber.

Asami 2007


Before her debut, Asami was working on the Hanabatake farm in southern Hokkaido, a farm owned by Tanaka Yoshitake. He had signed the three girls that would form the group Country Musume. The original three members were staying at the farm she worked at, practicing and preparing for their debut. The group went through a lot of hardships and changes during its first year, and in May 2000, an audition was held to get new members to join the group.

Rinne had been impressed with Asami's skills seeing her in a dog sled race, and she was approached and encourage to try out for this audition. Asami successfully passed that audition as the only new member to join the group. In July, the group's first movie, Country Girl Hokkaido Bokujo Monogatari was released. The theme song for the movie, "Koi ga Suteki na Kisetsu", was also released as Country Musume's fourth single, and was the first single which Asami takes part in.

Over the years, she continued on as part of Country Musume, through all its major changes. She also participated in the shuffle units every year from 2001 through 2004.

As of 2019, she is now a popular video game YouTuber in Japan under the name Achami (あちゃみ). She is also a member of the famous YouTuber Akagami no Tomo's team.
