Late in the year she released the album "FOLK SONGS" with Yuko Nakazawa. The same year she rejoined the music business with CUBIC-CROSS, which consisted of her (vocals), Yoshizawa Naoki (keyboards) & (guitar).

On August 30, she returned to TV in a TBS show called Sunday Japan.
On September 5, she appeared as a model in Tokyo Girls Collection (Yoyogi Stadium). Her agency stated that "She's returning as a talent with a bright and cheerful character, cultivated by her time in Morning Musume, that anybody would love. In the future, she'll be an actor with special and rare talents." The FLASH interview revealed that her husband and her two children have supported her in her comeback decision. She's realized she can't be an idol anymore, and doesn't want to be a mama-dol either, and that she hasn't been in contact with Morning Musume members, but she would like to appear on TV shows with them.
