- She has been playing piano since she was five years old. 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.
- She played in the brass band in middle school and was also a 2-dan in kendo club.
- 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.
- She has the same last name as original Country Musume member Kobayashi Azusa, and PINK CRES. member Kobayashi Hikaru.
- Her favorite composers are Brahms and Mozart.
