Moving away from familiar faces and environments throughout her childhood was a difficult challenge. From her hometown Japan to China, then to Canada, saying goodbyes never got any easier. This influenced Nozomi to write about the stages of falling in love, breaking apart, remediating hearts, moving on, and growing up. Nostalgia became the concept of her first EP 'WEST COAST' that was released in 2018.
Nozomi has also been invited to sing the Canadian National Anthem A Cappella Solo for the BC Lions Football Game at the BC Place Stadium. She has also toured in China and performed at various venues around Vancouver, BC.
