Miho Shinoda (信田 美帆, Shinoda Miho, born 18 May 1972 in Tokyo, Japan), is a former elite-level gymnast from Japan, and a former J-pop singer in 1999 and 2000 with the group Taiyo to Ciscomoon, for which she was the lead singer. The group was part of Hello! Project.


Shinoda became known in Japan in the late 1980s as an elite-level gymnast, participating in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul at the age of 16.[1] She began a second career as a singer in 1999, after a televised audition by Hello! Project Taiyo to Ciscomoon, which was later called T&C Bomber. She was also a participant in the short-lived group Akagumi 4 in 2000.[2] She quit Hello! Project after her group was eliminated at the end of 2000, and she returned to the sporting world as a women's artistic gymnastics coach. During the 2004 Summer Olympics, she provided gymnastics commentary for Japanese television.[3]

In 2009, Shinoda rejoined the group Taiyo to Ciscomoon for a series of reunion concerts.
