She was originally from Tokyo, but moved to Fukuoka in middle school. She left her close-knit, ‘family’ like classmates to a new school in Fukuoka where she knew no one. At first, she was popular with everyone, being the new girl from the big city, but she eventually found her withdrawing. Around this time, she was in the basketball team and there was a boy she liked, who asked her out and they took some purikura together. Also on the basketball team, was a girl who was the star player who became jealous of Atsuko. She would tell people to pretend she doesn’t exist, and Atsuko found herself being bullied by students of all ages. Because she has no friends, she would always be alone and spent most of the free time at school hiding in the toilets. [x]

High school was much better for her. She went to a school similar to Horikoshi in Tokyo, a special school for those in the entertainment industry, where she made a good friend. She always wanted to be famous, she thought she’d go to a school for famous people. While at this high school, she worked as a model for 3 years in a free magazine given out in the Kyushu region only. Being at the school gave her a lot of opportunities – she went to multiple auditions, which she failed, but also appeared on TV. [x]

After graduating, she went to an arts school, but she found herself being the worst at everything, so had modeling and acting lessons. [x]

Her first job was during the summer holidays of her first year of high school, where she worked at beef bowl store. She also worked at Unazuki Onsen resort in Toyama. After a month of working there, she saw an advert for jobs going at Haneda Airport and decided she needed to return to Tokyo. Her parents were on vacation at this time, so she left them a note saying that she was leaving. [x]

Her first idol experience was in the group Fleur* where she only stayed in the group for around 1 year, as she wasn’t satisfied performing to so few people. [x]

She applied for BiSH when they first formed, but was unsuccessful. She didn’t hear back from WACK, so she double checked online and saw that they were holding another audition so soon. She applied once more, this time taking sending in different type of pictures. Instead of taking idol-like photos, she got her friend to take a picture of her one night in Shinjuku, with her wearing her glasses. [x]

On December 22, 2018 it was announced, by Watanabe during a live performance, that Atsuko will be the next BiSH member to have her own solo debut. The MV for the solo song ア・ラ・モード / a la mode on June 30, 2019 [x] The single, which includes a Hashiyasume solo version of 社会のルール and a making of for the MV. This will be officially released July 4, 2019.
