Yuka Kashino (樫野 有香 Kashino Yuka?), nicknamed Kashiyuka (かしゆか?, stylized as KASHIYUKA[1]), is a Japanese singer and dancer. She is known as one of the members of the electropop group Perfume.[2]

Biography[edit]

Kashino was born and raised in Hiroshima, Japan, where she attended Actor’s School Hiroshima with friends and current Perfume members Ayaka Nishiwaki and Ayano Ōmoto. She and Nishiwaki are the two original members of Perfume.

Kashino and Nishiwaki formed Perfume in 2001 with former member Yūka Kawashima, who left shortly after to focus on her schoolwork. Before Ōmoto joined Perfume after being asked by Nishiwaki, the two had not met.[3]

Kashino is also friends with fellow singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.[citation needed]
