Muraoka Toshiko (村岡とし子) was born April 23, 1998. She is a Japanese pop singer signed under Hello! Project. She is currently a member of the group C-ute as well as being a member of the Hello! Project Kids. She joined Hello! Project Kids in 2002 through the audition and was later put into ℃-ute in 2005. As well as being in both C-ute and the Hello! Project Kids, Muraoka is also member of the group FLYING and a member of the group Girls Revolution.
Muraoka Toshiko took place in the Hello! Project Kids audition at the age of 4 and passed with 15 other girls. Her audition song was Sorry by Happy Jikan.
In early 2003, Muraoka joined the group FLYING alongside Muramoto Chie and Ishikawa Rika.
Muraoka continued her work within the Hello! Project Kids, namely performing alongside Morning Musume concerts as a backing dancer.
In late 2004, Muraoka took part in her first Hello! Project shuffle unit, H.P. All Stars, taking part alongside all the members of Hello! Project at the time. The shuffle unit released one single and became inactive by January 2005.
In 2005,Muraoka was assigned as a member of Hello! Project group ℃-ute alongside eight other Hello! Project Kids members. These nine members had been passed over when it came to the forming of Berryz Koubou, which had originally been formed to teach the Hello! Project Kids about being in a group by rotating the line-up amongst the kids. Originally ℃-ute was releasing on an indie label,but in 2007 they made their major debut.
Muraoka Toshiko released four indie singles as a part of ℃-ute in this year as a preparation for the major debut in 2007. ℃-ute also released their first album, "Cutie Queen Vol. 1".
On February 21, ℃-ute released their debut single, "Sakura Chirari". On the first day in the charts it ranked third on the Oricon charts, a feat not even accomplished by Hello! Project's mother group Morning Musume (who had ranked 6th on their debut single). With their debut single, they became the youngest group (with the average age of 13) to rank in the top 10. Muraoka served main vocals for the single.
April, Muraoka and Suzuki Airi opened their own Ustream channel called "SuzuMura".
March 21, it was confirmed that Morning Musume member Suzuki Kanon, Berryz Koubou member Tokunaga Chinami and Muraoka herself were joining the group Girls Revolution.
Muraoka released her first solo album "401 MURAOKA". 401 MURAOKA featured various Hello!Project song covers,and even some UP FRONT PROMOTION covers.
January 18, It was announced that Muraoka was diagnosed with influenza and would not be able to perform at the Hello! Project Winter 2013 concerts, nor attend the Kono Machi events. She was announced that she was healthy on her blog February 8.
