Risako entered the Terrace House back in May 2019 as the youngest of all three female contestants. But that wasn’t going to isolate her from the group. In fact, all of the housemates noted how “mature” she seemed upon arrival.

One of the reasons that Risako entered the Terrace House was to find a partner who wouldn’t find her “overbearing.” She also added: “My partners often turn out to be different once I get to know them” and that she’d like to “meet someone special.”
