U-Um... I... I want to change myself! P-please take care of my production.
THE iDOLM@STER 2 Game Manual Introduction
I already debuted as an idol, but I have barely done any work, and I don't think that's so good. There's no way I could legitimately write 'idol' as my occupation on any form. That isn't the way I want things to stay though, so starting now I've resolved to give it my all, do-or-die! So, well, I hope we can work together.
THE iDOLM@STER 2 Yukiho's Introduction
U-Um, ah, good morning! Hagiwara Yukiho, 17 years old. I-I really don't have any self-confidence, so I probably bother everyone around me. B-But, to change that part of myself, I'm aiming to be an idol! I think it's kind of absurd for a person like me to want to be an idol. But I'll show you that no matter how hard or painful it becomes, I'll keep going! I-I'm looking forward to working with you!

"Ahhh... Such a useless girl like me, at a huge event like this... I'm so ridiculously out of place, something's bound to go wrong... I-I'll at least try no to mess up too badly, so, uh, wish me luck..."

THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"Oh, ummm... My name is Yukiho Hagiwara, 17 years old. Producer's passionate gaze... I can feel the pressure from this project...!"
A timid and shy girl, Yukiho Hagiwara, 17 years old (16 in 1st Vision), comes from a very strict traditional Japanese household. She is easily frightened, especially by boys and dogs. During most hardships or problems she usually just starts to cry without first looking for a solution, and because of this she is very popular among the boys at her school.
Despite her not really having what it takes to be an idol, she was able to successfully win both auditions at 765 Production because one of her friends submitted a resumé about her without permission. However, she built up enough courage to pass the second portion of the audition herself.
Yukiho's family consists of herself, her father and mother, though there are also many of her father's disciples living at the mansion. Her father is against the idea of his daughter being an idol, sometimes even bad-mouthing the producer out of jealousy.
Yukiho loves to drink and make Japanese tea, and also likes to write and read poems, though she never has the courage to share them with others.
During the development stages of Yukiho's character, she was named "Megumi" (恵), and had a character setting of immediately fainting when stressed, instead of digging a hole. During the field testing of the arcade version of the game, Yukiho was the most popular character chosen to be produced.
Upon completing the True Ending of Yukiho's story, Yukiho will sing her song "First Step" to the producer before he leaves for America.
Other Media Appearances
Her fear of boys and dogs has been highlighted, but with the support of her dog-hating producer, she has overcome it somewhat. Due to her physical inferiority and timid personality, she was worried about not being able to keep up with the others in dancing, but with the support of Takane Shijou's dignified attitude and casual advice, she overcame this and grew to the point of challenging herself on stage.
She is close to Makoto Kikuchi and Takane in the series. She is also shown to be in a close relationship with Makoto, sleeping on the same futon with her at the training camp in episode 5.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- No one, not even Producer knows where her father works or what he does for a living, and Yukiho herself will not share this information. It is stated in-game that her father has many subordinates who work under him, and THE iDOLM@STER 2 shows her father working with a construction company, but Yukiho refuses to elaborate further, even insisting that her family is "completely normal". The game also introduces the DLC item "Hagiwara's Helmet Set", which heavily resembles a construction hard hat.
- Coincidentally, the Yakuza is traditionally very involved with Japan's construction industry.
- When stressed, Yukiho often says she's going to dig a hole and bury herself (穴を掘って埋まってます). This led to many jokes among fans, and she is associated with shovels in fan works. In fact, her "Variety Animal" costume has her dress up as a mole. In Famison 8-bit iDOLM@STER 04, she even hosts an attraction themed around Dig Dug.
- This also inspired Animate Cafe's New Years End 2020 collaboration menu, a matcha-flavored tiramisu with the spoon stylized like a shovel for her special birthday menu, which can be seen here.
- Yukiho sees Takane Shijou as having a very strong will, and idolizes her as a role model, even when they were rivals in THE iDOLM@STER SP.
- Yukiho and Makoto Kikuchi are best friends.
- While Yukiho's design has stayed fairly consistent throughout the games, in THE iDOLM@STER SP her hair was much more orange than usual.
- Yukiho is from the Adachi-ku (足立区) area of Tokyo.
- Yukiho's favorite food is grilled meat.
- Yukiho still believes in Santa.
- For unknown reasons, she is tied to aliens and UFOs, and seems to believe in them. In THE iDOLM@STER (Xbox 360), a UFO can sometimes be seen behind her in commus. She's the cover girl for Volume 3 THE iDOLM@STER Gravure For You!, which features an easter egg in the form of a UFO visible behind the buildings in the Winter Street Corner stage. Perhaps as a nod to this, she also features heavily in the event commus for the alien-themed Pikopiko IIKO! Invader in THE iDOLM@STER Million Live! Theater Days.
- She shares the same birthday and basic trait of fear towards people of opposite sex with Seiji Shingen.
- She also shares the same birthday with Eve Santaclaus.
- Yukiho is also known to be "Yukipo" by her fans for unstated reasons. There's also a meme called "Double Yukipo". The meme is based on Yukiho's Puchidol counterpart Yukipo from the Puchimasu! series.
