Early LifeEdit

Matsubara Yuriya was born on February 26, 2008 in Tokyo, Japan to a Japanese father, and Belarusian mother.

Prior to joining Hello! Project, she was a member of Toyosu Idol Star Gakuen,[1][2] a Koto-based organization that provides dance and vocal lessons for children. She was enrolled from approximately December 2016 to October 2017.[3]


In late 2017, Matsubara took part in the Hello! Project Shin Member Audition and made it to the finals before it was ultimately decided that no one would pass the audition.[4] Following the audition, Matsubara accepted an invitation to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei.[5]

Matsubara and the other finalists who accepted their invitations were introduced, and performed in the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2017 12gatsu ~Conti→New!~ concert on December 10.[6]


On September 29, Matsubara attended the first round of Nippon TV's comedy competition Onna Geinin No.1 Ketteisen THE W at the Kinkero Theater in Tokyo, under the supervision of Hello Pro Kenshuusei's manager.[7] However, she wasn't selected to continue to the second round.[8][9]

Personal LifeEdit

Her father is Japanese, and her mother is Belarusian. She is being raised bilingually, speaking both Japanese and Russian.[10]

As of April 2018, Matsubara is currently in her fifth year of elementary school.

Matsubara goes by both "Yuriya" and "Yuliya", depending on which language she's speaking.

"Yuliya" (Cyrillic: Юлия) is a feminine name of East Slavic origin meaning "Youthful".
