Personal

  • As noted in the April 2008 issue of Nikkei Entertainment!, it's often said that she has an "old-fashioned" face.
  • Is able to make an origami crane out of a piece of paper only 1cm x 1cm in size, a skill she is very proud of.
  • Is very bad at sports, as well as most physical activities in general
  • Is left-handed.
  • Has very bad vision. She wears contacts while working, but can usually be spotted wearing black-rimmed glasses during her off-time.
  • Is a big Yomiuri Giants fan, thanks in part to her father's influence.
  • In addition to her personal admiration of fellow singer/actress Kou Shibasaki, she is also a noted fan of both TVXQ and Masaharu Fukuyama.
