She was enrolled in Avex Artist Academy's dance program in Tokyo and was also a junior fashion model for a magazine.

An audition for new members to join either of the two groups was planned to begin in late April,[7] but the date on which further audition details would be announced and applications would start being accepted was changed to May 11.[8] On May 11, the Hello! Project "ONLY YOU" Audition" began.[9]
