What is the appeal of horse racing, music, and chocolate that multifaceted model Sakura Yokose is addicted to?



A circle of friends connected by gootouchi! The “FIST BUMP” corner of the radio program “GRAND MARQUEE” features people who live and enjoy Tokyo in a relay format.

On November 1, illustrator Man Doope Suzuki introduces model Sakura Yokose. We asked her about how she became a model, how she got into her hobby of horse racing, and her favorite chocolate.

A favorite artist’s live show inspired me to become a model.

Celeina (MC): First of all, let me introduce your profile. Koymyo was born in 1995 and hails from Osaka. With her fashionable, neutral face, style, and unpretentious personality, she has been selected as a model in various genres and has appeared in many music videos and TV commercials. She enjoys karaoke, yoga, visiting coffee shops, horse racing, manga, anime, chocolate, and horoscopes, and is a certified personal colorist, skeletal structure diagnosis advisor, chocolate expert, and aromatherapy expert.

Takano (MC): By the way, do you have a bass guitar certification? I don’t know if there is one (haha).

Yokose: I don’t have a a bass guitar certification.

Celeina: First of all, I would like to ask you how you became a model.

Yokose: I really liked bands, and I started modeling at a beauty salon after a hairdresser approached me on the way home from a concert of an artist I liked at the time. From there, I started working as a fashion model, moved from Osaka to Tokyo, and am currently working as a freelancer.

Celeina:Have you been doing freelance work for a long time?

Yokose: Yes, that’s right.

Celeina:We are also doing this work in a similar way to freelancing, so we are colleagues.

Takano: I would like to ask you about your freelance activities, but I like the fact that you became a model because of music.
