  • The first Takarasienne to be in the productions of all 5 troupes.
  • Appeared in 4 overseas performances: New York (1992), London (1994), Hong Kong (1998) and South Korea (2005).
  • Takarazuka Precious: Sakakihara Kazuko's Takarazuka First Night & Event Revue article - Kozuki Wataru Sayonara Show
  • ENAK Sumire Style Stage GRAPH - Sayonara Parade
  • Graduated 6th and is the only to become a "top" in her class.
  • First Takarazuka show she saw was Javanese Dancer.
  • Has two older brothers.
  • Kozuki is not afraid of putting on edgy productions! Her 20th Anniversary concert, "Ache" was an avant garde musical / concert with themes about gender identity, sexuality and self identity. She shared very sensual dance scenes with co-star Ayaki Nao and even briefly locked lips with her. In her 30th Anniversary Play, Kozuki did a mockumentary production styled like 'The Office' which details her attempts at trying to get hitched. It satirized Japanese social norms about marriage advise and she discovered after the entire experience that she loves performing and working more than settling down and marrying.
  • After Takarazuka, in 2012, graduated from the Open University of Japan, with a major in psychology and education.
  • In Nozomi Fuuto's Instagram post she thanked Kozuki for comforting her during her bout of anxiety attacks during her initial rehearsals of "Into the Woods". Nozomi explained that she got a culture shock being in a new environment and her social anxiety kicked in causing her to freeze during practice. Kozuki went over to her to help calm her down and relax. They both met at the Elisabeth 20th Anniversary Gala and formed connection because they both played Lucheni before.
