History

Wada Sakurako participated in the 2012 "Morning Musume 11th Generation ~Suppin Utahime~" audition, but failed to pass. She later made her first appearance as a member of Hello! Pro Kenshuusei on December 9, 2012 at the "Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2012 ~12gatsu no Nama Tamago Show!~" concert.

On January 2, 2015 she was revealed to be part of a new eight member group, later named Kobushi Factory. The unit consisted entirely of trainees from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei, including Fujii Rio, Hirose Ayaka, Nomura Minami, Ogawa Rena, Hamaura Ayano, Taguchi Natsumi and Inoue Rei.

The disbandment of Kobushi Factory and Wada Sakurako's graduation from Hello! Project and retirement from the entertainment industry were suddenly announced on January 8, 2020 through the official website. The announcement stated that leader Hirose had been in talks about her graduation since early 2019, and after lengthy discussions with the rest of the members they together came to the conclusion of disbanding as everyone decided to follow their own chosen path. The final single was to be released on March 4th, with the final live show taking place on March 30th at Tokyo Dome City Hall.

In her statement Wada explained that Kobushi Factory is important to her and she would not continue without those five members together. Having come this far, she will instead retire from the entertainment industry with no regrets and would like to experience society in a different way.
