  • She was one of the four Tokyo girls who decided to join Takarazuka immediately after seeing the company's first performance there in 1918.
  • Although the examination period for that year had already closed, pleas and some string-pulling from her father granted her a personal audition. She was accepted and immediately joined the rest of the girls for the return trip to Takarazuka, where her small stature and young age left many of her new classmates on the train assuming that she was another seito's younger sister.
  • Her first lead role followed six months later.
  • In 1928, she became an instructor in nihon buyo (traditional Japanese dance).
  • She became a member of the company's board of directors in 1948.
  • She was still an active member of the company when she passed away at the age of 74 on May 30, 1980.
  • A type of yellow rose was created and named in her honor in 1960.
  • Her young sisters are Kumono Kayoko and Ikebe Tsuruko.
  • Is reported to be the first Takarazuka star to wear hane (feather) on stage.
