Hitomi Yoshizawa – Hello Project!!


Hitomi Yoshizawa (吉澤 ひとみ) is a former leader of J-pop group Morning Musume. She is also the current leader of the Hello! Project futsal team Gatas Brilhantes H.P. and the idol group derived from its lineup, Ongaku Gatas

Yoshizawa became a member of the Hello! Project group Morning Musume in 2000, as a member of the fourth generation along with Rika Ishikawa, Nozomi Tsuji, and Ai Kago, making her debut in the group’s tenth single “Happy Summer Wedding”. She was also featured in the group’s theatrical release of Pinch Runner.


In the past, she has often been perceived as the tomboyish member of the group, due to her voice, manners, and hobbies. Furthering this perception of her masculine side, Yoshizawa’s first lead came in 2001 with the release of the single Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~, in which she played a dashing playboy character. She has since managed to mostly overcome this, as many view her as having matured out of her formerly tomboyish character once having assumed leadership of Morning Musume in 2005.

Yoshizawa became the Captain of the Hello! Project futsal team, Gatas Brilhantes H.P. when it was formed in September of 2003. The 5’4½” (164 cm)[1] midfielder has since managed to lead the team to victory on many occasions. Yoshizawa also convinced fellow teammate Nozomi Tsuji to remain as the team’s goalkeeper, despite her graduation from Morning Musume in 2004.


In April 2005, after the sudden and unexpected departure of Morning Musume’s then-leader Mari Yaguchi, Yoshizawa, the current sub-leader, became the group’s new leader. After Rika Ishikawa’s graduation in May of 2005, Yoshizawa became the last remaining member of her generation.

On January 11, 2007, Yoshizawa’s younger brother Kōta Yoshizawa (aged 16) was killed in a traffic accident.


On May 6, 2007, Yoshizawa graduated from Morning Musume after the band’s last performance in the ~Sexy 8 Beat~ Spring Tour, which took place in Saitama Super Arena in Hitomi’s hometown. According to several news sources, producer Tsunku, and Yoshizawa herself, she will enter a solo career of her own.

Currently Yoshizawa is focusing her time on Gatas Brilhantes H.P., along with being leader of a group formed with fellow members of the futsal team called Ongaku Gatas.

This girl right here, is the one who responsible for my addiction to Morning Musume and Hello! Project. A tomboy, good in sport, funny, cute but strong also. Maybe, not a very popular figure in Hello! project and Morning Musume. But still someone I adore, kinda like a big sister. I hope you have a nice future Yossi!!^

    Really??? Not jealousy huh??:D. Hehe, nice pictures right?^_^

  3. Don’t forget that even if it wasn’t the majority of fans, the members during her leading time loved it. “She’s very reliable” – Ogawa (crying), “We never talked until recently (leader). She sends letters every so often asking “How are you” and helped me out when I felt depressed.” – Niigaki. “The most memorable event of MM this year (2007) was Yossy’s graduation.” – Takahashi

    Yossys signature ability is to lead. I’m so glad she’s leading again, and not only that, getting up front and center of all of Ongaku glory! It’s like when she was asked what she would love to do for one day in MM, is be like Koharu. And I think she’s getting what she asked for, for a long time! But now she just needs a damn solo single!

    U have a mistake though, when u said Ongaku Gatas is a futsal team. -)
