"This may sound abrupt, but between the Western Army and the Eastern Army, which faction do you prefer? Of course, I prefer the Western Army faction, Keiji is so cool! Ah, Keiji is my favorite military commander — Maeda Keiji-sama! ... Eh? Idol? No way, can a period drama come out of it? Really? I'll do it!"
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
Hitomi is an idol from Nagoya with tremendous interest in her country's feudal history. She can cite encyclopedic knowledge of figures like Hattori Hanzou, Miyamoto Musashi and Yagyu Jubei. Hitomi travels around Japan with tour guides that explain what major battles or significant historic events took place in the location. Some of her idol costumes also contain some elements of samurai wear.
Hitomi is a bit eccentric. When she is spotted by the producer at a Period Drama Village, they get the impression she is running around with someone dangerous, but as it turns out, she just talks about Maeda Keiji as if he were someone in the current day. After clearing up this confusion, Hitomi shows off her knowledge and enthusiasm. She wants to be as much like a samurai as possible. Because of her knowledge and idolization towards these figures, Hitomi starts out having the producer bring a sword to her lesson so she can work on her strength. She learns that physical strength is important, and vows to train hard so she can rise through the ranks.
Hitomi commonly raves about Maeda Keiji and why she loves him so much. She aims to be a "female commander", in her own words.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Hitomi shows her knowledge base on the feudal lords of Japan. She often compares her fellow idols to famous historical figures and references various battles. She will occasionally start to imagine that she is one of those figures, and will act as them during entire conversations. Admittedly, she won’t eat fish from the head like a general, as she finds that to be disgusting. Hitomi appears to be a very skilled actress and tour guide. She also is friends with Tamami Wakiyama, Aoi Shuto, Honami Nishikawa and Ayame Hamaguchi. She doesn’t have much interest in Asai Nagamasa.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- Hitomi wants to beat Nagisa Aino, although she does not share the same rivalry towards her like Kai Nishijima does.
- Hitomi is one of the five Cinderella Girls idols from Aichi, alongside Nagisa, Chinami Komuro, Midori Mizuno, and Tokiko Zaizen.
- Hitomi and Tokiko specifically come from Nagoya, which is the capital city of the prefecture.
- On August 23, 2021, the official Starlight Stage Twitter account posted the Tourism Ambassador illustration of the Aichi idols of Cinderella Girls, which erroneously referred to Hitomi as "Hitomi Niwa of Aichi" on one of the tags, sparking protests from fans. Although in itself not a particularly critical error (as Nagoya itself is located in the Aichi Prefecture), this would have implied that Hitomi came from another part of the prefecture. The official account has since posted an apology for the mistake and reposted the illustration with the proper tag "Hitomi Niwa of Nagoya".
- Hitomi is more often depicted with Aoi by fans, as Tamami and Ayame are more often depicted in the Atarayoduki unit (especially by official accounts pertaining to Cinderella Girls).
