Ayano Ōmoto (大本 彩乃 Ōmoto Ayano?, born 20 September 1988), nicknamed Nocchi (のっち Notchi?, stylized as NOCCHi), is a Japanese singer and dancer. She is known as one of the members of the Japanese electropop group Perfume.
Ōmoto was born and raised in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, and attended Actor’s School Hiroshima with friends and Perfume members Ayaka Nishiwaki and Yuka Kashino. She was placed in the advanced class for singing, as she was always interested in singing. In a letter she wrote to her "Future Me" she recalled her singing teacher telling her if she just wanted to sing and dance because she loved it. Nishiwaki and Kashino were still in the beginner class at this time, meeting Ōmoto secretly.
