Information

After seeing an audition notice for the junior fashion magazine nicola, Aragaki applied and won the Grand Prix award for the audition. After that, she became a Nicomo (Nicola model) and because of her fashion sense and logical personality gained many fans. In 2004 she put her modeling in Nicola on hold to expand her current career into gravure, appearing on variety shows, and acting. In 2005 she officially graduated from the magazine. The same year, she was in the TBS drama Dragon Zakura. This began her entrance into the acting world and she has gone on to appear in other shows since. Even though she has graduated from nicola, she still appears in the magazine occasionally.

2006 marked the release of her first photobook, Chura Chura, which is regional dialect for something that is beautiful.

Trivia

  • Best friend is fellow Nicomo Konan Yuka.
  • Aragaki was very shy as a child. Even now she is shy around strangers, which is uncommon for most celebrities who get their jobs for being outgoing.
  • Her nickname "Gakki" came from fellow actress Enomoto Atsuko.
  • Shares not only a nickname with Niigaki Risa, but they were also born in the same year. However, their nicknames are spelled differently.
  • Has the same agency of super-popular former U-15 idol Ishida Miku. They even lived in the same dormitory while debuting in Tokyo. She attended the same high school as Satsukawa Aimi.
  • Has acrophobia, or fear of heights. During an Up to Boy photoshoot, she had to be in a ferris wheel gondola. Even though her acrophobia was in full swing, she tried her best to suppress it.
  • Currently, Aragaki holds the record for most covers of nicola at 15 covers.
  • Her pet is yellow Leopard Gecko name Chiichan
