  • She likes cats.
    • While she was a Sakamichi Kenshusei, she tried to stop a fight between her cat and a stray cat. As a result, was severely scratched, with the scars taking nearly a year to heal. "Even so, I still like cats" she wrote in her blog.

  • She got along well with Moriya Akane, and was known to come on really strongly to her.
    • When it was announced that she and Akane would not perform in the same song for the group's third single, and final single prior to Akane's graduation, she began bawling to the point that the manager had to scold her.

    • She said that Momoko "shone more than anybody else" and that she would continue to light up her heart after her graduation.
  • She has made many custom t-shirts for herself and her fellow members.
    • For example, on Sugai Yuuka's birthday, she gifted her a shirt of Tomu the cat riding a horse. Also, upon Moriya Akane's graduation, she gifted her a shirt of Momo the cat with the words "cat allergies" in the back.
