  • Often described as a "big sister"-type and a person who is usually quiet.[14]
  • According to herself, she is not very talkative, quite shy and scared of her first impression to other people. However, challenging solo activities made her realize that she liked talking and made it easier for her to communicate with people.[14]
  • According to herself, she "felt like she was burning out" when she left E-girls as she had realized many of the dreams she had since she was a child but lost sight of her goal for a moment after becoming alone.[14]
  • A piece of advice from a senior that stayed with her is "It is your life, so you should create it by yourself without any regrets." from EXILE HIRO.[14]
  • To the question "Have you ever lost your way or felt like your heart is about to break?" in an interview in 2020, she answered "I am always lost and I always feel like my heart is about to break. In fact, I have broken down before." Explaining further, she revealed: "There have been times when I have broken down and thought I might not be able to do it anymore. I thought about going back to my hometown many times. But each time, the people around me helped me. They have held me together. The first time was when Dream was disbanding. I was at my wits end, wondering what to do, as I had no more work starting tomorrow when a chance encounter with HIRO, who had previously performed at the same concert, led me to move to LDH. After that, when the members graduated and everyone was thinking it was impossible, EXILE ATSUSHI gave me a song as a gift with the words, "Because people can go three times as far as they thought they were at their limit." Whenever I feel down, someone is always there to see me and pull me up."[14]
  • Her hobbies are watching movies at the cinema and playing video games.[5]
