In 1991, when she was 7 years old, her family returned to Japan and she attended elementary school. She began to learn how to play violin at this time. Even though her father opposed to it at first, Miyamoto said that a friend inspired her. In 1994, she moved back to Germany during junior high. In 1996, at the age of 14, she topped the Germany Düsseldorf Student Recording Competition. In 1999, she returned to Japan and entered Tokyo College of Music for high school.
