2013[edit | edit source]

In Summer 2013, Yokogawa auditioned in the Morning Musume 12ki Member "Mirai Shoujo" Audition. "I wanted to join Morning Musume because my mother had always liked the group..." Yokogawa said in an interview. "...my sister had started singing their songs around the house, so I started liking them a lot." Yokogawa made it to the final round alongside 6 other finalists, but no one was chosen for the group due to Morning Musume's situation at that time. After failing the audition, Yokogawa was asked by UP-FRONT to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei.

That same day, a self-introduction video was uploaded on Hello Pro Kenshuusei YouTube channel, revealing her as a new member of the trainee program. On December 7, Yokogawa was officially introduced as a Hello Pro Kenshuusei at the December recital alongside the other finalists: Yamaki Risa, Niinuma Kisora, Oura Hirona, Dambara Ruru, Haga Akane and Funaki Musubu. All seven girls did a dance performance of "Watashi ga Iu Mae ni Dakishimenakya ne".
