Saori Yamamoto was born and raised in Tokyo. Although not well known outside of Japan, she's one of the most famous Japanese idols in Japan. She's best known for her prodigious breasts although their reported size is greatly disputed, particularly for a woman her size.
Saori began modeling at the age of 16. After a few months her career took off. She released her first DVD a year later called Pure Smile.
Saori has appeared in many stage productions and television shows in Japan. Her first non-solo DVD appearances were in the high action movie Bra Shooter. Modeling and acting are not her only talents. She is currently on a Japanese national soccer team called Team Spazio.
Like many J-idols, Saori Yamamoto was also featured in a video game/DVD called Gal of the Sparrow 2, which she announced at 2005's Tokyo Game Show. This DVD features other popular J-idols such as Chikako Sakuragi, Rio Natsume, Yuka Watanabe, Akari, Kaede Shimizu, Hitomi Okada and Hatsune Matsushima. This DVD/video game is only for sale in Japan.
