Yokoyama's first attempt to join AKB48 or a sister group was for SKE48's second generation, but her audition was unsuccessful. She later passed the auditions with AKB48, and became a ninth-generation kenkyusei (trainee) member on September 20, 2009. She was the first of her generation to be promoted, which took place at AKB48 Tokyo Matsuri on October 10, 2010, and where she became a member of Team K.
