Who Is Asami Kimura & Why Is She Famous?

It was reported back in 2014 that Japanese pop music group Country Musume will reform under a new name in the winter of 2014-2015 and they would end up with a new lineup of members. That new group would start its activities under the name Country Girls. One of the members of Country Musume was pop music singer Asami Kimura. Asami Kimura is known as having been the second leader of the group Country Musume which was formed back in 1999 by Morning Musume producer TSUNKU. Note: Country Musume would change its name to Country Girls.

How Was Country Musume Formed?

The objective was to recruit country girls from the region of Hokkaido. In her time in the entertainment industry, Kimura was also a member of the futsal team called Gatas Brilhantes H.P. Asami Kimura sang vocals on the Country Musume album Country Musume Daizenshhuu 1. She was under contract with the Zetima record label, the same label that released Morning Musume’s album called 10 My Me in 2010.

Asami Kimura Had Not Been Involved With Entertainment Related Activities Until Recently

Kimura graduated from Country Musume in 2007 following a winter concert. She still lives in Tokyo and she is very fond of dogs. During her graduation ceremony, Kimura said that she might pursue a career that involves working with animals.

As of 2020, it is known that Kimura returned to Hokkaido and started a YouTube channel which is very different from the aspirations that she had before.
