She is now working as a waitress in a bakery, and is the Fiancé of Takeomi Kuroiwa.
Yoriko has short hazelnut hair in a bob-cut and blunt bangs. She has a very kind and pleasant demeanor, always seen wearing her school uniform and a warm smile.
Her hair is unchanged after the timeskip, though she puts it up using a bandana when at work.
Yoriko is a friendly, sweet and caring girl who is also Touka's classmate and only human friend. Yoriko strives to become a cook. However, as ghouls cannot eat human food, her refined cooking tastes, normally tasty to humans, tastes even more horrible to ghouls than standard food. She cares deeply for Touka and worries over her, but she often enjoys teasing about Kaneki being her so called "boyfriend". In return, Touka holds her in high regards and surprisingly cares deeply for her too; much like Kaneki with Hide.
Doves' Emergence Edit
When Touka got sick, Yoriko delivered food to Touka's residence, and discovers Kaneki at her place, mistaking him for Touka's boyfriend.
Owl Suppression Operation Edit
Yoriko and Touka make plans to visit the zoo during summer break. After the Anteiku Raid, Yoriko goes to the zoo alone to wait for Touka.
Root A (Anime) Edit
In the Root A Anime Yoriko spends most of her time helping Touka prepare for her university entrance exams.
Rose Extermination Edit
As Shirazu and Takeomi go to a bakery (on Saiko's pleading because she was hungry and said there was a delicious bakery nearby), Yoriko is seen holding a tray of baked rolls, calling out Takeomi. She adds quietly to herself; "That figures" when Shirazu asks Takeomi if he knows her he simply calls her by her last name.
Post Rushima Landing OperationEdit
She greets Takeomi when he visits her bakery with Saiko and Koori. When her manager becomes worried at the increasing ghoul attacks, she tries to calm him down. She is then surprised when Takeomi asks to marry her, but accepts soon after.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Yoriko is an ordinary human, living a peaceful life. Her only notable skill is her exceptional cooking.
Yoriko has been close to Touka for a long time and she seems to support Touka in the same way Hide does with Kaneki. Touka also cares deeply for her friend and defended her against some classmates who tried to bully her. Yoriko is not aware that Touka is a ghoul, however, and often brings her food or tries to get Touka to eat with her at lunch.
Since the destruction of Anteiku, they have not seen each other. Yoriko tells this to Takeomi and he is investigating what happened to Touka.
Takeomi was Yoriko's classmate in elementary school for several years, although he often transferred because of his father's duty. Both of them still remember each other. She noted that he never talked much but had a strong presence and was incredibly athletic.. Takeomi eventually asks Yoriko to marry him.
- In Tokyo Ghoul Trump, she is featured as the "Four of Hearts".
