I took up indoor volleyball at the invitation of a friend when I was in grade 3 of elementary school. After attending Bunkyo Gakuin University Girls Junior & Senior High School and Aoyama Gakuin University, I joined the NEC Red Rockets, contributing significantly to the team winning two consecutive titles in the Volleyball Summer League. In 2015, I switched to beach volleyball, winning several championships both in Japan and overseas. I joined NTT in April 2018.


Goals for this season

This season’s first goal is to qualify for the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships. In addition, since the Asian Beach Volleyball Championship will take place in September, I will aim for making it to the podium there.
