Asahi debuted in the wrestling ring at the age of 14 for Ice Ribbon at Korakuen Hall, facing former All Japan Women’s Champion Manami Toyota. In 2020, she temporarily stepped away from wrestling to manage her commitments to both the sport and school. She made a comeback the following year.

In 2023, Asahi concluded her contract with Ice Ribbon and joined Actwres girl’Z. Initially planning a three-to-six-month loan, she decided to officially become part of the new promotion. Her final match took place on January 31st.

We here at Ringside News offer our deepest condolences to Asahi’s family and loved ones during this incredibly sad and difficult time.
