She first encountered AVs by watching several tapes that belonged to a friend's brother. Unlike most AV actresses, Chichi Azada was not scouted.
Instead, she was introduced to the AV industry through a friend that was working in AVs. Chichi Azada was interested in the industry, and researched
companies until she found B-open, a model agent which she liked. She applied for an interview with the company and was accepted. She started
modeling as Miyabi for the site shirouto-teien.com in June 2005, which resulted in several sets of photographs and two hardcore gonzo videos.
She was then signed by the S1, an AV company that produces light hardcore pornography, premiering for them as Chichi Azada on October 7, 2005
with the video New Face. Chichi Azada remembers that she was so nervous during the filming of her first AV that she could not look the male actor in the face.
