Sasaki Kumi is a member of Hinatazaka46's 1st Generation and the captain of the group. She is a "Ray" magazine exclusive model (from April 2019).


  • Special skill: Playing trumpet
  • Favorite food: HARIBO Gummies
    • Her catchphrase is "Kumi that loves Gummy" (グミが好きな久美 Gumi ga suki-na Kumi)
  • She originally applied to become a Keyakizaka46 member because she was a fan of Nogizaka46.
    • She considered auditioning for the first Keyakizaka46 audition, but ultimately thought it was impossible for her to pass. She regretted not auditioning soon after. Later, she learned about the Hiragana Keyakizaka46 audition while watching Keyakitte, Kakenai? and signed up.
    • She kept her application a secret from her parents, who were against pursuing jobs in the entertainment industry. When she progressed to the third round and began streaming on SHOWROOM as part of the audition process, she told her parents. Her mother was furious, but her father encouraged her. Now both of her parents support her activities.
  • She is Hinatazaka46's eldest member.
  • She was announced as the Captain of Hiragana Keyakizaka46 on SHOWROOM on June 3rd, 2018.
  • She is close friends with Kato Shiho. Their duo is called "KikuToshi", as "Kiku-chan" is occasionally used as a nickname for Kumi.
  • She shares a family name with Sasaki Mirei. On many Hinatazaka46 programs where they both appear, they are referred to by first name only ("Kumi" and "Mirei") while other members are referred to by their family names.
  • She can play trumpet. She performed Whiteberry's "Summer Festival" on trumpet on Keyakitte, Kakenai?.
    • She did brass band club activities all the way through high school.
  • She did classical ballet until junior high school.
  • She has an older brother.
  • She worked part-time as a receptionist for a cram school before becoming an idol.
  • She is a fan of the baseball team Yomiuri Giants.
  • She is a big fan of One Piece. She titles most of her blog posts after One Piece characters, and says she wants to be a captain just like Luffy.
  • She graduated from university in March 2018.
  • She and Tomita Suzuka did the whistling that occurs at the beginning and end of Honto no Jikan.
