Biography[]

Uchiyama passed AKB48's 14th generation auditions on 13 May 2012. She debuted on 9 July 2012.[citation needed] In August 2013, she was promoted to the newly formed Team 4. In February 2014, during the AKB48 Group Shuffle, it was announced that Uchiyama would be transferred to Team B. In April 2014, Uchiyama entered Keio University.[1]

In the 2014 general elections, Uchiyama ranked for the first time at 63rd place.[2]

Uchiyama knows the whole Japanese Constitution by heart. In July 2014, she collaborated with Shigeru Minamino (南野 (しげる)), then an associate professor at Kyushu University School of Law, publishing a book titled "Constitutionalism: The Essence Unwritten in the Text" (憲法主義: 条文には書かれていない本質, Kenpō shugi: jōbun ni wa kaka rete inai honshitsu) regarding the Japanese Constitution.[3] They co-wrote the book with the hope that Japanese teenagers would get a basic grounding and become interested in constitutional discourse, since despite the voting age in Japan has been lowered to 18 years old, education on the matter is considered lacking.[4]

On November 1, 2015, she announced her graduation from the group.[5] On February 21, 2016, she finished the activity as the member of AKB48.

As of October 16, 2017, she is signed to Horipro and is billed as a "Constitutional Idol" (憲法アイドル, Kenpō aidoru).[6]

From January to March 2018, she was a participant in Parliament Member GO (議員GO, Giin Go), a political variety show inspired by Pokémon Go, which was broadcast on the Internet television channel AbemaNews.[7]

On March 2018, she graduated from Keio University, and left Horipro.
