1998Edit

On May 3, she, along with Yasuda Kei and Ichii Sayaka, were chosen to be a part of the second generation of singers to be recruited into Morning Musume.

On November 18, she debuted with Morning Musume's first sub-group, Tanpopo.

She made her movie debut in the film Morning Cop, alongside the other Morning Musume members and Hello! Project soloist Heike Michiyo.

2000Edit

On October 20, she created and formed Morning Musume's sub-group Minimoni. She had an idea for a sub-group whose members were 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in) in height or shorter. Yaguchi, and Morning Musume's songwriter and producer Tsunku, selected two of Morning Musume's newest members, Kago Ai and Tsuji Nozomi, for the new sub-group and the trio began performing in concerts as Minimoni. American-born Mika Todd, of Coconuts Musume, was later added into the group to give the group "an international flavor" and Tsunku made them official.

Their debut single, Minimoni Jankenpyon! / Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu Daisukki!, was a #1 hit.

Yaguchi also had a supporting role in another film called Pinch Runner alongside the other Morning Musume members.

2002Edit

On February 7, she released her first photobook titled Yaguchi.

She starred in another film called Nama Tamago alongside Iida Kaori, Tsuji Nozomi, & Goto Maki. The film was released in VHS format on March 15 and later in DVD format on May 15.

2003Edit

Yaguchi became Morning Musume's sub-leader in May, after the graduation of Yasuda Kei.

On March 29, she graduated from Minimoni, having Mika Todd replace her as the leader. The group lasted another year until Mika Todd's graduation from the group and Hello! Project altogether.

In July, she debuted with ZYX as leader. In ZYX, Yaguchi acted as a mentor to the Hello! Project Kids, showing them the ropes of being a performing member of Hello! Project. ZYX was the first unit that Hello! Project Kids officially joined.

She also made a guest appearance in one episode of the drama Kochira Hon Ikegami Sho.

She released two more photo books, one titled Love Hello! Mari Yaguchi, part of an idol DVD she had. The other being Pocket Morning Musume, Volume 2, which also featured Abe Natsumi, Goto Maki, and Iida Kaori.

On October 10, she released her first essay book entitled Oira - MARI YAGUCHI FIRST ESSAY.

2005Edit

On January 30, after the graduation of Iida Kaori, Yaguchi became leader and Yoshizawa Hitomi then became her support as sub-leader.

On April 14, it was reported by tabloid magazine FRIDAY that Yaguchi was in a relationship with actor Oguri Shun. She said she had "betrayed [her] position as an idol" and that she "want[ed] to move on with [her] career as an adult." As such, Yaguchi resigned from Morning Musume without a graduation ceremony.

Her first post-Morning Musume recording, Nigiyaka na Fuyu, done as a collaboration with Berryz Koubou, appears as the coupling track on Berryz Koubou's November 2005 single Gag 100kaibun Aishite Kudasai.

2006Edit

In April, it was reported that Yaguchi and Oguri broke up.

In 2006, she continued to appear on television and at live events on behalf of Hello! Project. She also co-hosted two weekly TV shows of her own (Yaguchi Hitori and Kanrui! Jikuu Times), starred in two dramas, and frequently guest starred on other variety shows.

2007Edit

At the start of 2007, she started to perform during Hello! Project concerts again.

In Summer, Yaguchi was cast to host a new Gyao TV show, Midtown TV, thus appearing in a third TV show on air. Midtown TV aired on weekdays and Yaguchi hosted it on Thursdays. Also, Mari and seven H!P Eggs appeared live and with an audience on Ciao TV, a Kids Station show, on September 2, from 19:00 to 19:30, on what appeared to be yet another new TV show for her, which made four Yaguchi Mari TV shows being aired simultaneously.

Yaguchi appeared in a Japanese drama series called Sento no Musume!? (銭湯の娘!?, daughter of public bathhouse). She was one of the main stars in a Japanese day time drama series called Gyarusa (ギャルサ, Gal Circle), along with her show Yaguchi Hitori, and being an MC at Hello! Project concerts. From May 25, and up to June 6, Yaguchi performed in Damn Yankees, a popular 1955 Broadway musical at the Tokyo Aoyama Theater.

Yaguchi Mari participated in the Minna no Fitness event on April 27. Minna no Fitness is a free internet workout.

When asked about the comebacks of former Hello! Project members Goto Maki and Kago Ai, she replied that she hasn’t been in contact with them and doesn’t know any of the details.

2009Edit

She graduated, with the rest of the Elder Club, at a graduation concert held at Yokohama Arena on February 1.

Yaguchi Mari's first solo single debuted live on the TV show Quiz Hexagon, which also brought about popular groups Pabo and Shuchishin. The CD single was a collaboration with AIR BAND and included a randomly chosen photo card of either Mari or AIR BAND. It was an emotional performance for Mari who had not performed on live television in over four years.

In April, it was announced that Yaguchi would be writing a “blog-like” column in Famitsu, one of the most respected video game magazines in Japan and the world. She would be talking about how girls are also passionate gamers. The column also featured photos of Yaguchi. The column was originally released on May 1. The column was titled “I’m a Gamer.“

In November, Yaguchi Mari was rendered into a CG (computer graphic) character for a Yakuza-themed video game titled Ryuu ga Gotoku: Densetsu wo Tsugumono. [1]

In December, the cover for Yaguchi Mari to Straw Hat’s single, titled Kaze o Sagashite, was released. "Yaguchi Mari to Straw Hat" was the name of the Hexagon family unit for the song which featured Yaguchi as the main singer. The song was used for the opening of the anime One Piece. [2]

2010Edit

In February, Yaguchi announced on her blog that she was opening a restaurant called Shabushabu Onyasai Roppongi. The restaurant opened on March 19. She mentioned on her blog that she was fussing about the interior design, sampling food from the new menu, suggesting new menu ideas, working on staff uniforms and even working on a new uniform for her, so it seems that the restaurant was suited to Yaguchi’s personality. [3]

On Yaguchi's Blog, it was announced that she and Maeda Yuuka would appear in a film titled Hoshisuna no Shima no Chiisana Tenshi ~Mermaid Smile~.

In March, It was revealed that Yaguchi Mari, Satoda Mai and Michishige Sayumi were to be regulars on the midnight TBS show Aimai na!. The air date was set for April 19th.

2011Edit

On January 2, some media outlets reported that Yaguchi Mari would be getting married to her boyfriend, actor Nakamura Masaya. According to a related source, Yaguchi already said that she would be getting married, and now she needed to report her marriage and decide the day to register the marriage.

On January 28, It was announced that Mari was part of the OG member group Dream Morning Musume and that they would be releasing the groups first album, called Dorimusu ①, on April 20th.

On May 21, it was announced that she had registered her marriage to Nakamura Masaya for May 22, 2012. Originally, the couple planned to marry in March but, due to the earthquake, their plans were postponed.

2012Edit

On May 22nd, Yaguchi Mari and Nakamura Masaya held a wedding ceremony at St. Grace Cathedral in Aoyama. She has changed her name to Nakamura Mari, but continued to use "Yaguchi Mari" as her stage name.

2013Edit

On March 2nd and 3rd, Yaguchi participated in Forest For Rest ~SATOYAMA e Ikou~ SATOYAMA movement in YOKOHAMA along with other Hello! Project and UP-FRONT PROMOTION members.

From April 4 to April 9, Yaguchi performed in the stage play Ikinukukiseki ~Juunenme no Negai.

In mid-May, multiple news agencies and magazines reported that Yaguchi had an affair and was cheating on her husband. It was also reported that she and her husband got into an argument on whether or not to have a child, and the two were now living apart. Nakamura Masaya's agency confirmed that the two were fighting, but that they were not getting a divorce. According to reports, Masaya caught Yaguchi sleeping with another man, Kenzo Umeda, back in February. Umeda immediately deleted his blog and Twitter account and Yaguchi apologized to the public. Yaguchi was thereafter seen without her wedding ring.

On May 21, she was seen at the Morning Musume Concert Tour 2013 Haru Michishige☆Eleven SOUL ~Tanaka Reina Sotsugyou Kinen Special~, watching Tanaka Reina's graduation.

On May 30, it was announced that Yaguchi and Nakamura Masaya had submitted their divorce papers, and Yaguchi claimed that there was domestic violence in their relationship.

According to new reports, Nakamura came home one day, and saw what looked like a bedroom that was just used for sex. Nakamura found Umeda hiding in the bedroom closet naked. Umeda was told to kneel down and bow while Nakamura took a photo of him for evidence. Nakamura said that "Our bed sheets were always changed to new ones whenever I came back home from other locations." Yaguchi has since left three TV shows that she was a regular on.

Tanaka Reina replaced her on her regular USTREAM for the time being.

On July 8, TouSpo reported that she was currently living with Kenzo Umeda and that she was planning to make a comeback later that year and make a public apology.

In Josei Jishin's August issue, Yaguchi's acquaintance said she would make her comeback once the issue died down. She apparently stated that she would return within the next 5 years (by 2019). It was rumored that she had 100 million yen in savings.

According to a friend of Kenzo, Yaguchi and Kenzo were talking about getting married.

On October 1, she was transferred to UP-FRONT CREATE.

On October 13, she blogged that she was going on an indefinite hiatus. She hoped to return to show business one day.

2014 Edit

On October 23rd, Yaguchi appeared on "Miyaneya", an afternoon tabloid television show.

In November Yaguchi started blogging for the first time since her hiatus announcement.

TriviaEdit

  • She has a younger sister, former AKIHABARA Backstage pass member Yaguchi Miki.
  • Yaguchi was the first Morning Musume member to "resign" due to a scandal. She received no graduation concert or final performances because of this, but she made it clear that she would return as a solo artist in 2006.
  • She was famous for her "Sexy Beam!" line from "Koi no Dance Site" and she was asked jokingly in the Morning Musume single Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari, "When will your real sexy beam come out?" The "Sexy beam!" line has made its way around fans and fellow musicians alike.
  • She is good friends with Yasuda Kei.
  • After being out of Morning Musume for a time, she often came out and discussed how Tsuji Nozomi terrorized her in Minimoni and Morning Musume and also said whenever she sees her cry, even to this day, she was not affected by it and thinks she is faking.
  • She is known for her exuberant and irreverent personality.
  • She was also famous for being the smallest member of Morning Musume at only 145 cm (4 ft. 9 in.) and 39 kg (86 lbs.).

  • When she resigned from Morning Musume, she was the last person to leave that joined before the year 2000 (Iida Kaori had left about 2 months before).
  • As of January 2015, she had the eighth longest tenure of any Morning Musume member. Iida Kaori held the longest record even after Yaguchi graduated and in the succeeding years Michishige Sayumi, Niigaki Risa, Tanaka Reina, Takahashi Ai, Kamei Eri, and Yoshizawa Hitomi surpassed her as well.
  • Her new focus on television prompted Yaguchi, during an interview with actor Hugh Jackman, to jokingly describe herself as a "variety idol." Although she later regretted the joke — because she tried to distance herself from her idol image — the nickname has stuck among her fans.
  • She was the last one to leave Morning Musume from her generation.
  • She was the sixth former Morning Musume member to get married, the first being Ishiguro Aya, second being Ichii Sayaka, third being Iida Kaori, fourth being Tsuji Nozomi, and fifth being Fujimoto Miki.

  • When on a trip to Russia, she got into a taxi and the driver drove off without the staff. The staff had to chase down the taxi to get her back.
  • When on a trip to Russia, she made Matryoshka dolls representing each Morning Musume member.
  • She was the second former Morning Musume member to be divorced. The first former Morning Musume member to divorce was Ichii Sayaka, who was from the same generation as her.
  • She was apparently planning on getting married again, this time to Kenzo.
