After entering an audition arranged by her family, she made her debut in 2013 with a TV commercial and soon attracted strong attention by her appearance in TV dramas.

While still in high school, she also achieved a role in a movie and released a photo album. After graduation, she came to Tokyo to further pursue her career in entertainment, experiencing various roles as singer, narrator and weather presenter while building her career in acting, which made her capable of obtaining leading roles in TV dramas and movies.


<Comment from Kaho Mizutani>

I am Kaho Mizutani and I play Rin Natsume.

Rin is cheerful and reliable, like an elder sister to SKIP members.

I hope I can bring the affinity to the audience and let them feel that the Ultraman world is close to us.

For myself, I always love the shows I used to watch as a kid and have grown up under their influence. I will do my best so that Ultraman Arc can be a show like that to everyone.

Looking forward to the day when everyone sees it!
