- She is the first Morning Musume member to come from the 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 of Morning Musume to dye her 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.
- 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, taking them home for personal use.
- She has said that she really doesn't like spending money and that she is a bargain hunter. For example, when she needs to buy groceries, she makes sure to visit multiple stores first, remember the prices, and go back to the one with the lowest price. She admits to being a total cheapskate.
- Iikubo Haruna has said that it is her cheap nature is getting worse annually. She adds 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.
- When she craves certain foods, she does go out to get them but she still makes sure to buy the cheapest of its type. She worries that the expensive ones will not suit her taste.
- Her mom is the one who handles her finances and she herself doesn't know how much she has saved.
- 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.
- When asked about her hobby, she says that it's going to different supermarkets.
- She recounts a story of going to a shaved ice store with Maria. As a senpai, she thought that she should treat her kouhai so she ordered a big one that costs 800 yen. However, she realized that she only had a 10,000 yen bill and got a bit confused as to what to do. Before regaining her senses, however, Maria jumped in and handed the cashier a 1,000 yen bill. Ayumin had no choice then but to apologize to and thank her kouhai. She says that she made sure to pay Maria later.
- Recently, she lost her title of being the shortest MM member to Sakura. She's a bit sad that now she really can't use her catchphrase of "I'm small but I can dance!" anymore.
