Tohoku Zunko (東北ずん子) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd., and was created in collaboration with SSS Co., Ltd.. She was released in June 2014 for the VOCALOID3 engine. She is also sold as a VOICEROID+. An update to the VOCALOID4 engine was released in October 2016.[1]

Her voice is provided by the Japanese voice actress, singer, and narrator, Satomi Satō (佐藤聡美; Satō Satomi), who is known for her role as Ritsu Tainaka from the Japanese music anime "K-ON!".[2]


Zunko is high school student in her 2nd year. Her special ability is "Zunda Arrow" which transforms any kind of mochi into zunda-mochi.

Her hobbies are archery and making cakes, particularly zunda-mochi. Her dream is to own her own "Zunda Café" in Tokyo as well as a "Zunda Shop" in Akihabara. This was mentioned in a short bio that was included in her strap.


Her family name, "Tohoku", comes from the Tohoku region in which she was made to support after a tsunami struck the area in 2011. Her first name, "Zunko", is derived from "zundo" mochi.


Zunko's clothing is based off of Zunda mochi, a type of mochi (rice cake) with sweetened green soybean paste. It is a local specialty in the Tohoku region.


There are voicebanks of her sisters available for UTAU.[7]
