Quote :
Ikimono Gakari formed in February 1999 as an indie band based in Kanagawa, Japan. Founded by Mizuno Yoshiki and Yamashita Hotaka, the two began doing street performances and decided on their name of "Ikimono Gakari". In December of the same year Yoshioka Kiyoe joined as the group's main vocalist. However, nearly one year later the three disbanded in order for Yoshiki and Hotaka to focus on their university entrance exams. Their reformation occured in March 2002 after the two had gone through their university classes.

Four years after their formation, their first album was released on an indies label. They were signed to Epic Japan Records and released their first mainstream single SAKURA in March 2006. The title song was used in NTT East Japan commercials and heard on various televised programs.

Members:
* Yoshioka Kiyoe (吉岡聖恵) - Vocals
* Mizuno Yoshiki (水野良樹) - Guitar & Vocals (leader)
* Yamashita Hotaka (山下穂尊) - Guitar & Harmonica
