Satoda Mai (里田まい), legal name Tanaka Mai (田中まい), is a Japanese pop singer. For a long time she was the only member of the group Country Musume, now known as Country Girls, whom she is the supervisor of. Satoda was also a member of the Hello! Project futsal team Gatas Brilhantes H.P. and its associated music group Ongaku Gatas, and she was captain of the Hokkaido-based futsal team, Sapporo Cerbies.
