|“||I’ve said “I’m good at dancing” when I entered Morning Musume, but since joining Morning Musume I’ve only danced with Morning Musume; there are much more amazing dancers in the world, therefore I don’t want to stop the thought that “the dancing in Morning Musume is amazing”. I understand that of course dancing is not everything; I want to cherish Morning Musume as a group itself, but I want to stretch out further and further my strength in dancing.||”|

- She is the first Morning Musume member to come from Miyagi prefecture.
- Tsunku called her performance skills high quality.
- During her introduction at her first concert she said, since her specialty is dancing, she wants to have a solo performance as soon as possible.
- Considers her charm point to be her brown eyes.
- When asked what aspect of her makeup she is most particular about, she said she has to apply lotion before putting on any makeup to protect her skin.
- She wears contact lenses.
- She is known to be a big Suzuki Airi fan and has declared her love and full support for her at a 10th gen debut event in Nagoya.
- She is the first and currently only member out of the 10th generation to have dyed hair.
- When asked what she would do if she were trapped on an island, she said she would ride a whale to safety.
- She believes she can't lose with the sharpness of her dancing, and never forgetting to put in effort.
- She considers Fukumura Mizuki her rival.
- She would like to remake Morning Coffee if Tsunku would ask her to write a song.
- She wants to spend less time perfecting her dances, and simply enjoy being in Morning Musume.
- She has stated that she will only eat tangerines as a midnight snack and nothing else.
- Her favorite English word is "difficult."
- She said that English isn't one of her favorite subjects because she has a hard time remembering English words.
- She could have been in Kera magazine when she was 11 years old. Her cousin, Ishida Mio, who was a model for the magazine, gave her the opportunity to participate, but her mother disagreed.
- She, along with Ikuta Erina, are the only members in Morning Musume to be born in the same year as the group was formed in 1997.
- If she wasn't an idol, she would like to have been a hairdresser.
- Sanma-san has named Ishida as his oshimen.
- Tsunku commented on her: "She's already 17 years old. Since she's short she's often grouped with the younger ones, but she's already in the grown up team. Surely from the end of this year, until the beginning of the next year, Ishida will grow as an adult even more. Ah, and she should set her goal even higher when it comes to dancing!"
- Fans have found that she has a habit of taking promotional costumes home for personal use.
- She has said that she really doesn't like spending money and that she is a bargain hunter despite shopping being a hobby of hers. She admits to being a total cheapskate, even when craving certain foods, and that her mother manages her savings. Iikubo Haruna has said that her cheap nature is getting worse annually and that it's becoming increasingly difficult to invite her out because she always wants to go to cheaper places.
- She is not saving her money for anything (not a house, a car, or anything really). She just likes saving.
- She says that she has three close friends from her hometown who always watch their concerts. However, since moving to Tokyo four years ago, she has not made a single new friend outside of H!P. In addition, she only has around 60 contacts on her phone. She surmises that not having many friends to spend money with is one of the reasons she has become a cheapskate.
- In late 2015, she apparently lost her title as the shortest Morning Musume member to Oda Sakura when they appeared on Tokyo Girls' Update TV. She stated she was a bit sad that she can't use her catchphrase "I'm small, but I can dance!" anymore.
- Despite this, her height is still recorded as 150cm, which is 2cm shorter than Oda.
- She has a Japanese cooking app that allows you to share your own recipes.
- Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku member Yasumoto Ayaka is a fan of Morning Musume, and her favourite member is Ishida. She has mentioned Ishida on several television programs and in her blog, and also collects her goods.
- Her mother was surprised Ayumi became physically active in school because in her early childhood she had a weak body.
- She was hospitalized 3 times with a 40°C fever in the past.
- Despite having no electricity following the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake, she kept on practicing dance with just the light of candles.
- Linlin and Junjun both said that Ishida was their favorite member in Morning Musume.
- TRIANGLE was Ishida's first lead role in a musical production.
- If she could be reborn as someone else, she would be Nakazawa Yuko because she wants to experience being the first leader of Morning Musume while they were at the top. Nakazawa often comes to concerts and Ishida was surprised by the gap in her image. Ishida because had heard that she was scary, but was surprised when Nakazawa told them "I'm glad that everyone right now is working hard" in a kind voice.
- Ishida is really proud of being the only Morning Musume member from the Tohoku region. She can confidently say it is one of her charm points due to the strong support she has from Tohoku fans.
- If she did not become an idol, she believes she would still be doing something that involves dance because she started learning when she was little and always has fun when showing off her dancing.
