When she went to Japan, SAKURA formed an R&B and Soul unit that gave SAKURA recording practice by participating in a jam session in New York.

In 1997, she made her debut with the single "All Brand New" on an indies label. But soon agter, she made her major debut under Toshiba EMI with the single "SOUL MATE". Her 2003 single, "LOVE 4 REAL", cracked the OSAKAN TOP 100 radio chart. She also participated in a Def Tech song and went on tour with them. She also participated in the song "Star Navigation", the b-side for the single "Kimi ga Warau Hou e" by Taiji All Stars.
