also a fashion icon as an exclusive model for the magazine Nono. Hailing from a humble beginning,
Sakura's passion for music was ignited in her middle school days, where she not only excelled
in the wind orchestra, securing a gold award at the prefectural contest but also discovered the
music of Nogizaka 46, which would later play a pivotal role in her career. Despite describing
herself as shy and reserved during her high school years, Sakura was deeply influenced by
Nogizaka 46's hit Influencer, leading her to pursue a dream that would soon change her life.

have made her a sought-after model, debuting as an exclusive model for Nono Magazine in 2020,
where she has since featured prominently, including achieving her first solo cover
in October 2022. Her talents have stretched to the acting arena as well, with appearances in
TV dramas such as Moshimo, Ikkomen Deku no Koko ga Adora and Ranman, solidifying her versatility
as an artist. Sakura Endo's hobbies and interests paint a picture of a multi-faceted individual with
a love for Japanese sweets, movies like The Cat Returns, and a penchant for reading novels by
authors such as Kanae Minato. Her musical tastes are eclectic, ranging from J-pop sensations like
Little Glee Monster to classic acts including Southern All-Stars, showcasing her wide
appreciation for the arts. In the world of Nogizaka 46, Sakura shines brightly, admired for
her skill with the clarinet, her unique nickname Saku-chan, and her friendly relations with fellow
idols across the Sakimichi groups. As an idol, model, and actress, Sakura Endo's journey is a
