Yoko Fujimoto joined Sado no Kuni Ondekoza in 1976 and went on to become one of the founding members of Kodo in 1981. After three years as a performer, she stepped down from the stage to edit the monthly Japanese language newsletter and act as an instructor to the apprentices. In 1989 she began to sing again and has been Kodo's principal vocalist ever since. Apart from Kodo concerts, she performs in the female song-and-dance trio Hanayui, holds concerts and drum-and-song workshops with her husband Yoshikazu Fujimoto, and is a member of the Triangle Project with Japanese-American musicians PJ Hirabayashi and Nobuko Miyamoto. She also conducts Voice Circle workshops, one of her self-proclaimed “life works.” In 2008, her first solo album "morisa komorisa" was released.
