Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She is half Samoan.
  • She wanted to sing "Hatsukoi Cider" by Buono!.
  • She auditioned for Hello Pro Kenshuusei after seeing an advertisement for it in the newspaper.
  • For her, the best thing about joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei was being able to dance and sing.
  • She thought it was embarrassing to not be able to catch on during lessons.
  • She thought she wouldn't lose to any other member in moving her chin really fast. 
  • She wanted to be an idol that's good at talking.
  • She considered her most feminine aspect sneezing.
  • She would have liked to go to California, because she thinks California is a cool name, and also do bobsledding for the Winter Olympics.
  • She said she drinks a lot of Coca-Cola.
  • She would have liked to own a Greek tortoise or European tortoise as a pet.
  • She wanted to be the best at MC and talking, which she would be the funniest and most ridiculous person to make everyone in the audience laugh.
  • In the March 2014 issue of Gekkan Entame, she was ranked second at "forgetting items the most" in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.[3]
  • Her rival in Hello Pro Kenshuusei was Fujii Rio, she said that Fujii was good at dancing compared to her. They were also generation-mates and she thought that Fujii was a good person to aim to be like.
  • She was bad at finding the rhythm. When she first joined she couldn't hear it at all, but she was still bad at hearing a 16-beat later on that she wondered if she would be able to soon.
  • Her dream was to become great at singing and dancing, even though she thought she was the worst Hello Pro Kenshuusei, she would build up her abilities. She would have liked to be an idol, but if she couldn't she would have also liked to be an actress or the funniest talent on TV.
  • In late 2013, Tsunku commented on Mikame: "When you overdo the dance movements I can see you falling out of step, so I want you to work on getting smaller, more stable movements down so as not to do that."
  • As of 2018, her favorite Hello! Project members are Sato Masaki, Oda Sakura, Makino Maria, Yokoyama Reina, Wada Ayaka, Kamikokuryo Moe, Inoue Rei, Kishimoto Yumeno and Doi Rena. She also likes Juice=Juice as a whole.[4]
