She left Country Musume after the death of fellow member Yanagihara Hiromi, saying the pain of the loss was "too great". Later it was speculated that the real reason she left was because 'adult' pictures of her had surfaced. A month after her departure she began to release adult photobooks under the name Morita Hiromi (森田ひろみ). Until 2008, she also went by the name Hayashi Karin (林華鈴).
In 2013, she made her comeback as a singer by releasing a mini-album, Distance, under her real name Kobayashi Azusa.
