Hiroko's father was a corporate head. Her family owned a vacation home in Karuizawa. She attended Yamanote Women's Academy with Noriko. While nightclubbing, Hiroko and Noriko was picked up by the F4's Sojiro Nishikado. He invited the two of them on a trip to Tsukasa Domyoji's island. There Hiroko stayed in Sojiro's room. The next morning, the F4 played volleyball. She and Noriko declined to play, but cheered on Tsukushi Makino when she joined. On the final day, everyone was left behind on the island when Tsukasa took off in his private jet. They were forced to get back to Tokyo via Kazuya Aoike's boat, which took two days.
She was a pretty girl in her late teens. Hiroko had long, dark hair with bangs pushed to the right side. She usually left her hair down, but put it up once. Unlike Noriko, she wore a lot of make-up though not too much. Her clothing was stylish for the time and was likely expensive and name-brand.
Personality and traits
Hiroko was a happy, carefree person, much like her friend Noriko. She was impressed by the ridiculously wealthy F4, though she came from a rich family herself. Hiroko frequented night clubs with friends and was experienced with sex. She was also nice girl though a bit empty-headed.
