From Sapporo, Hokkaido, she was born with an handicap in her legs caused by congenital neuroblastoma (hereditary cancer). The doctor introduced her a wheelchair sport and she became fascinated by sports including the wheelchair marathon since 2005.
She made good works at numerous events including the National Athlete Meet. Her performance caught the coach of Para Nordic Skiing Japan’s attention. Then she was challenged to participate in the cross-country ski from 2015. She accumulated achievements steadily and won the 4th place in two events: the Biathlon and the Cross-country ski in the “World Cup Sapporo Tournament” in 2017. In 2018, she successfully participated in those 2 events again in the Pyeongchang 2018 Paralympics.
