"Yahhoo! Producer!! Yes yes, energy and health are number one! What's it, my beautiful skin's secret? Mmm, then again I exercise a lot, as well as sitz bath! It's just those!"
Yoko is a woman who enjoys exercise, training, and everything healthy. She is very passionate about her health and beauty, and she can usually be found with Itsuki Manabe, who also likes exercising. Both share the same birthday and are commonly depicted together, from the initial unit Light Green Surf (along with Natsuki and Marina) to their trademark unit Heat Up Cheers (along with Tomoka Wakabayashi).
The tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits depict Yoko as a healthy and happy young woman. She is friends and exercise partners with Itsuki, and the duo even competed in a marathon together. She tries to keep the Producer comfortable even if the situation is difficult for him. When Hotaru accidentally dropped a flower pot on her, Yoko caught it before it could hit the ground. She handed the plant back to Hotaru, and it was noticeably healthier than it originally had been. She also enjoys surfing and believes that onsen have a nice beautifying effect. At one time, she escorted the sleepyhead Kozue to the Producer's sofa, only to find out that he was already sleeping there. Yoko prevented Kozue from insisting on sleeping on him and fixed his blanket's position. In a pajama party with Miyo, Hina, and Nanami, Yoko started a discussion about beauty management with the two fellow 20 year-old idols and was surprised to find the youngest idol already fall asleep soon. Yoko gave an advice for Tamami to become a grown-up, which made the high schooler go out with the Producer. During an off-time activity with Heat Up Cheers, she gave an advice about her beauty skin secret while carrying a body cream, which invited Mizuki Kawashima's attention. Prior to an event, Yoko offered fellow Fukuoka idol Chizuru Matsuo chocolate, as well as Hasumi and Kaoru, which made the youngest idol suggest that the same chocolate party be held every time Chizuru is about to perform. Yoko's love for moving her body extends to her Battle Talk practices, where she has been seen practicing her lines while on an exercise bike. During a New Year's prayer in a temple, Yoko noted how Noa was seemingly praying as well, only for her to reveal that she was, in fact, not praying at all, causing both Yoko and Shinobu to decide to pray once again (in the case of Shinobu, this is because she "prayed the same as Noa's prayer"). During another off-time break on the office, Yoko was attempting to solve a Rubik's cube and offered Shiki to finish it for her. The puzzle was later borrowed by Kozue (who, surprisingly, was able to finish it only by remembrance) and Itsuki, who, attempting to finish it herself, was also cheered on by Tomoka. Yoko praised the unit for this cooperation. Yoko has used the same obon ghost costume for two different events; one featuring Heat Up Cheers and another in a Halloween event along with Miyabi and Shino.

|Yoko: Hello, everyone! Today, I'm the one who's going to answer some DereMails.|
|Question: What do you do when you're half body bathing?|
|Yoko: Massaging myself, spacing out, singing and also thinking of things, I guess. #DereMail|
|Yoko: I could say that I've been thinking about fashion more. Like having a fashion show in my mind.|
|Question: What's your favorite season?|
|Yoko: All of them! And that includes winter! But since it is the season where it's easy to dry out, one has to take good care of herself more. #DereMail|
|Yoko: But, thanks to that, there are new ways that are being thought up and a lot of new products to encounter.|
|Yoko: Feels like a season with more discoveries. Yes... that includes spending...|
|Question: You seem like someone who can't hold their own against alcohol|
|Yoko: I-I'm not that weak~. It just so happens that I have no recollection of the things before from time to time... But I can hold myself against alcohol... probably... #DereMail|
|Yoko: It's just when I drink something strong, I get wasted... But that's the same with everyone, right?|
|Yoko: I might have strayed a little for that last one, but I really appreciate you all for asking!|
|Yoko: I'll be back again to answer some more, so just keep on sending those additional mails! And that's your promise with Yoko-san! See you then~!|
