An optimistic, lively and clumsy 14-year-old middle school student who loves sweets. Her mother ignored her for many years for having no talent (comparing to her younger sister, Natsume, who plays the piano very well). Due to her incredible palate, that allows her to immediately tell what ingredients are used in different sweets and who made the ingredients, she is spotted by Henri Lucas during a Sweets Festival. On his suggestion, she transfers to St. Marie Academy in order to train to become a pâtissiere like her grandmother. Ichigo is also known for her huge appetite for cakes; she claims there is a second stomach specifically for sweets, and has won several cake-eating contests in the past. As the story progresses, Ichigo improves her talent as a pâtissiere and gains new friends and rivals along the way. Ichigo wins the hearts of almost everyone with her hard work and love for pastries. Her dream is to create sweets that makes people smile.
At the end of the last episode of the first season of the anime, Ichigo and Kashino promise to tell each other about their feelings when they're accomplished patissiers. During the second season, she is 16 years old and in a new Group A, consisting of herself, Lemon, Rumi, and Johnny McBeal. She is also a part of the Henri-sensei's project, Marie's Garden, which includes Kashino, Lemon, and Johnny. In the very last episode of Yumeiro Patissiere SP Professional, Kashino tells her that he always wants to be able to make sweets with her, and accidentally kisses her. It is hinted that she and Kashino will be starting a new shop in London.
