History

Yoshizawa was selected from the third round of Morning Musume auditions on ASAYAN to join Morning Musume as a fourth generation member in 2000, along with Ishikawa Rika, Kago Ai, and Tsuji Nozomi. She made her debut on the single "Happy Summer Wedding," and first appeared on the fourth studio album, 4th Ikimasshoi!.

In July 2000, she replaced Ichii Sayaka in Petitmoni and went on to release three singles and one album with the group. Later, when the line-up was reshuffled with Ogawa Makoto and Ayaka replacing Goto Maki and Yasuda Kei, Yoshizawa became the new leader. However, unlike the other newly shuffled Tanpopo and Minimoni, the new line-up of Petitmoni never released a single. They had one original song, "WOW WOW WOW," but it was only released on the Pucchi Best 4 album and performed during concerts.

She was given the main vocals on Morning Musume's 13th single, "Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~," which established her boyish character and gave a huge boost to her popularity.

Yoshizawa was placed in Morning Musume Sakura Gumi in January 2003 and released two singles as a part of the group before it went inactive.

She was an original member of the futsal team Gatas Brilhantes H.P. when it was formed in September 2003, and is currently the captain.

With Iida Kaori's graduation in January 2005, Yoshizawa became the subleader to leader Yaguchi Mari. However, when Yaguchi abruptly resigned from the group in April, Yoshizawa was bumped up to the leader position, backed up by Fujimoto Miki as subleader.

In April 2006, she was named an official supporter of the Japanese women's soccer league, Nadeshiko League.

On the heels of her graduation, it was announced that she would be taking over some of Tsuji Nozomi's shows for the play "Itsu no Hi ka Kimi Kaeru", following Tsuji's surprise announcement regarding her pregnancy and upcoming wedding.

On September 12, 2007, she released a single along with Gatas Brilhantes H.P. members, Narihajimeta Koi no Bell as a group called Ongaku Gatas.

Trivia

* Yaguchi Mari came up with "Yossy," Abe Natsumi came up with "Yocchan," and Satoda Mai and Ayaka call her "Yoshiko." Fujimoto Miki is the only one to call her "Kabutomushi" (rhinoceros beatle), a nickname earned due to a silly game both played with each other during the Ribbon no Kishi stage musical.
* Graduated from Risshisha High School with a correspondence course.
* Her Morning Musume mentor was Yaguchi Mari.
* Is related to marathon runner Takahashi Naoko.
* Though well-known as the "tomboy" of the group, the other members have repeatedly pointed out that Yoshizawa is actually much more girlish and delicate than her public image.
* Although Tsunku initially pegged her as an "intelligent beauty" type during the fourth generation auditions, Yoshizawa's character was cemented after playing the boyishly handsome center role in "Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~."
* She was almost named "Sayaka," but when she was born, she had such big eyes that her father named her "Hitomi" ("eyes").
* Extremely skilled in sports, especially volleyball, even receiving a recommendation in middle school.
* Very close friends with Satoda Mai and Ayaka, as well as with Ishikawa Rika, Goto Maki, Fujimoto Miki, Ogawa Makoto, Kago Ai and Mitsui Aika.
* Her favorite part of her face are her multiple beauty spots.
* Her father was initially extremely opposed to her joining Morning Musume, so much so that he called a family meeting about it after she was selected to join the group. However, by the time her debut single, Happy Summer Wedding, came out, he was reportedly humming it around the house.
* She was in Morning Musume for 7 years and 1 month, putting her second only to Iida Kaori for having the longest tenure of any Morning Musume member.
* She said in a 2004 interview that the animal she is most like is a tiger.
* She thinks the sexiest part of her body is her upper lip.
* She once listed her hands and her voice as charm points.
* In early 2005, she stated she'd lost 5 kg (approximately 11 lbs) playing futsal.
* On the 22 October 2007 episode of Ongaku Gatas no Guts10☆Gatas, Yoshizawa said that the correct romanization of her nickname is Yossy and that Yossi and Yossie are incorrect.
* Takahashi Ai has stated that Yoshizawa's graduation was "a very important moment for Morning Musume."
* Yoshizawa has had the most solo lines in one single out of all the Morning Musume members. She had 31 solo lines in Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~.
