Nozomi was born and raised in Akita, and began fashion modeling in her teens. She entered the magazine scene in late 2000s after been discovered by a seasoned fashion model, Emi Suzuki, who introduced her on the Pinky fashion magazine in late 2007. This magazine, Pinky, was originally for Emi Suzuki, since it was created for the popular model, but Nozomi became its featured model especially after March 2008 when she landed alone on the cover.
After (essentially) quitting fashion modeling, she has been a gravure model, and occasional actress since 2008 when she played a role in the movie Handsome Suits.

She, as a gravure model, has appeared in many magazines and has been a prominent gravure icon of the Young Jump magazine. She has released 5 solo photo collections and 2 solo DVDs since 2008; “Nozomi” (2008), “Sasaki Nozomi in Tenshi no Koi” (2009), “Non” (2009), “Prism” (2010), “Nozokimi” (2010), “Weekly Young Jump Premium DVD ‘nozomi'” (2008), “Dolly” (2009).
