Takamoto Ayaka is a member of Hinatazaka46's 1st Generation. She is a "JJ" magazine exclusive model (as of February 2019) and a "andGIRL" regular model (as of March 2023). She announced her graduation on March 5th, 2024, and will leave the group after the release of the group's 11th single.


  • Special skills: Fast talking, archery
    • She has a first grade in archery and was in the archery club in high school for 3 years.
    • She also claims to be good at making macarons, though she "fails every other time".
  • She has an older sister.
  • She decided to become an idol after attending SKE48 member Matsui Rena's graduation concert in August 2015.
  • Her pinky always stands up when she drinks or eats.
  • She is called "the Heater Police" by Kageyama Yuka because she doesn't like it when the heater is on.
  • She is clumsy and tends to spill or drop food on herself.
  • She has a dog named Cherry. However, because this is similar to one of Aya’s own nicknames, Ayacherry, she finds it embarrassing to use her dog’s name. She instead refers to her dog by pseudonyms, like Latte, Baby, etc.
  • She has a "model switch" when taking photos, and is able to become very serious and professional about the process.
  • She is close friends with Kawata Hina. On a segment on HINABINGO!, she chose Hina as her ideal little sister and Hina chose her as her ideal big sister.
  • She is close friends with Higashimura Mei. The two of them are called Ame (あゃめぃ) by other members and fans.
  • On an early episode of Hinatazaka de Aimashou, Kasuga mistook Ayaka's name as "Hiromi". This mishap has been referenced many times since, and Ayaka has made a running joke of "Who is Takamoto Hiromi!", "Kasuga-san, can you say my name?", etc.
  • Beginning in October 2021, she was appointed as beauty ambassador for the "anan" magazine "Beauty's Slope Climbing Corps (美容の坂道のぼり隊 Biyou no Sakamichi Nobori-tai)" cosmetics segment.
