In 2001, Miyoshi entered the Morning Musume LOVE Audition 21 to become a 5th generation member of Morning Musume, but did not pass. The following year she participated in the ASAYAN audition Nikkan Ultra Idol Duo Audition, but didn't pass.


Miyoshi was the only winner of the Hello! Project Shin Unit Audition in 2003. She was reportedly supposed to debut as a solo artist, but she instead debuted in 2004 as a member of the group v-u-den with Ishikawa Rika and Okada Yui. She was also made a member of the Hello! Project kickbase team, Metro Rabbits H.P..


In 2006, Miyoshi was cast in the movie Sukeban Deka: Codename = Asamiya Saki also starring Matsuura Aya and fellow v-u-den members Ishikawa Rika and Okada Yui.


In 2008, v-u-den disbanded. After v-u-den's disbandment, Miyoshi remained within Hello! Project as a member of Elder Club.

From August 8 to 10, she appeared in the sequel to the Melon Kinenbi play Kaba, titled Kaba 2.[1]

From November 27 to 30, she appeared in the stage play Nekome Club.[2]


In 2009, Miyoshi graduated from Hello! Project along with the rest of the Elder Club.[3] She stayed as an UP-FRONT AGENCY talent afterwards.

From March 14 to 22, she appeared in the third stage play in the Kaba series, Kaba 3, alongside Melon Kinenbi and Okai Asuna.[4]

From April 23 to May 2, she appeared in the stage play Mikoto Mannequin alongside Shibata Ayumi, Noto Arisa, and Yasuda Kei.[5]

From November 4 to 8, she appeared in the stage play Rintoshite! alongside Korenaga Miki, Sainen Mia, Kitahara Sayaka, and Sano Kaori.[7]

In December, Miyoshi and former v-u-den member Okada Yui briefly reunited to perform two live shows: MIYO-YUI no Kyounen mo Futaribocchi Casual Dinner Show on December 20, and MIYO-YUI no Kyounen mo Futaribocchi Special Live on December 23. Many v-u-den songs were featured, as well as some cover songs.


In 2011, she was cast in the stageplay Reborn ~Inochi no Audition~ along with Morning Musume, and other members of UP-FRONT.

From February 8 to 27, she appeared in the stage play Shakuji Polka ~Heisei-hen~ at the Sanpo Douraku Winter Festival 2011.[8]


Following UP-FRONT AGENCY being split into two companies (the other half being UP-FRONT PROMOTION which was mostly comprised of active Hello! Project members) in October 2012, Miyoshi was transferred to the company's Sapporo Branch.


On April 9, Miyoshi updated her blog informing fans that she registered her marriage on April 8 to an IT company employee from Sapporo, and that she plans to continue her work.[9]


On August 10, 2016, Miyoshi announced on her blog that she was pregnant with her first child, due after the new year.[10] On January 19, 2017, she gave birth to a daughter named Anela (あねら).[11]
