Saaya Irie (入江紗綾, Irie Saaya, born November 15, 1993) is a Japanese actress, voice actress, gravure idol and singer. Her stage name is simply her given name, Saaya.

In addition to her modeling work she has recently been appearing in numerous films, radio, and television programs. She has also done voice work, appearing in the anime OVA Kyo no Gononi as Chika Koizumi. She was formerly a member of Japanese musical group Sweet Kiss before it disbanded on May 12, 2006 to be replaced by the group Chase.


As a model[edit]

Irie was born in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan. During her childhood she idolized Yoshika, a fashion model from Kitakyushu, but she gained fame for her professional glamour modeling as a U-15 idol, making her debut at age 11. Her bikini pictures soon received widespread distribution over the Internet.[1] In October 2015, Saaya released her 12th photobook, and appeared in 44 solo gravure idol DVDs through 2017.

Personal life[edit]

After making her debut as a model, she still lived in Fukuoka Prefecture where she attended elementary school and middle school,[2] but moved to Tokyo when she turned 16. In August 2014, she contracted Dengue fever during the 2014 Dengue fever outbreak.[3]
