Early LifeEdit

Kobayashi Honoka was born on August 16, 2000 in Tokyo, Japan.


On December 3, during the BEYOOOOONDS Ouen Kikaku FC Event 2018 ~Fuyu no Jin ZIN~ at Yamano Hall, Kobayashi was revealed alongside Hirai Miyo and Satoyoshi Utano as the three winners of the Hello! Project "ONLY YOU" Audition.[1] They would form a third group as part of the combined group BEYOOOOONDS with CHICA#TETSU and Ame no Mori Kawa Umi.[2]

Personal LifeEdit

When Kobayashi joined BEYOOOOONDS, she was a third year student[3] in the Piano Course at Tokyo College of Music High School.[4]

In 2016, Kobayashi placed second in the High School Division of the 8th Gyula Kiss International Piano Competition.[4][5]

Kobayashi graduated from high school on March 9, 2019.[6]

Kobayashi says she is closest with Satoyoshi Utano in Hello! Project.[7]

Here is a list of nicknames that was used to refer to Kobayashi Honoka:

  • Honoka-chan (ほのかちゃん): Used by BEYOOOOONDS members.[8][9]
  • Hono-chan (ほのちゃん): Used by Hello! Project members.[10]
  • Honorin (ほのりん): Used by fans.
  • Kobayashi-chan (小林ちゃん): Used by Hello! Project members.[11]
  • Yashikoba (やしこば): A nickname given to her by Suzuki Keita when she joined BEYOOOOONDS.[12]





TV ProgramsEdit



  • She has been playing piano since she was five years old.[14] She likes to practice on her days off from work and has transcribed her favorite songs such as Kobushi Factory's "Naseba Naru" by ear.[7]
  • She played in the brass band in middle school and was also a 2-dan in kendo club.[7]
  • She decided she wanted to join Hello! Project when she was sick with the flu one day and watched various idol videos because her body felt too sluggish to do anything. She came across a video of Michishige Sayumi's graduation concert medley and was impressed by the Morning Musume members' quick response and teamwork to Michishige hurting her leg in the middle of performing and being unable to move from the main stage, such as Fukumura Mizuki running all the way from center stage to sing next to Michishige. That video made Kobayashi want to learn more about Morning Musume and grow to love them.[15]
