  • Member of the eleventh group of Bambies (1974-75).
  • Received her stage name from a teacher she respected. She said, "I'd like to be stern and forbidding like a Turugidake's peak", and so became Tsurugi Miyuki.
  • Her most important show, Me and My Girl, was so popular that it actually ran for a year! (Twice in the Daigekijou, twice in Tokyo.)
  • Entered Takarazuka because she wanted to be a professional dancer; she knew almost nothing about Takarazuka itself when she took the exam. However, she graduated the 13th in her class.
  • Continues to act prolifically on stage (work includes "Calamity Jane", "Saiyuuki", "The Spider's Web", "Merchant of Venice", "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", "The Goodbye Girl", "King Lear", "Snoopy!", "Hamlet", "Showtune", "Funny Girl" and "Hello, Dolly!") with occasional TV and movie work.
  • Released three CD singles: 「ラストダンスは私に」 and 「流星の丘」 in 1992, 「今、あなたへの歌/アメリカンドリームをこの手に」 in 1997.
  • Wrote the memoir 「メリーゴーランドのように」 in 1992.
