She is 2016-17 season National Novice champion.

Her coaching staff is Koji Okajima (jump), Noriko Sato (skating),
Nana Takeda (choreo), and Risa Mochizuki (spin),
same team with 2018 World silver medalist Wakaba Higuchi.

She trains in Tokyo.

She had hip injury in early 2017-18 season and edge issue on Lutz.
It's likely reason of why national novice champ didn't compete JGP her first junior season.

She fixed edge issue.


I think you can find her winning FS(Black Swan) in Feb 5 2019 on YouTube

DeepL translation:

Thank you so much for all your support!!!

When I was on the podium, it was like a dream, I could finally feel it☺︎ I feel this bronze medal was a big step for me, a confidence boost!

Of course, I wanted to make a quad, and I was so close to the 2nd place... I feel frustrated, but I think the biggest thing was that I could enjoy my first Grand Prix Series from start to finish!

I will try to make the best of it in the next NHK Cup 💪💪.
