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.
