Under her previous ring name Kairi Hojo, she made her professional wrestling debut in January 2012 for the World Wonder Ring Stardom promotion, where, over the next five years, she became a one-time World of Stardom Champion, three-time Goddess of Stardom Champion and a four-time Artist of Stardom Champion, while also winning the 2015 5★Star GP and 2016 Goddesses of Stardom Tag League.

Housako left Stardom in June 2017, after signing a three-year deal with WWE. She won the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament and, just under a year later, the NXT Women’s Championship. In 2016, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter called Sane and her fellow Japanese workers Io Shirai and Mayu Iwatani “three of the best wrestlers in the world”. In 2020, she returned to Japan to join her husband, and has since then been working as a WWE ambassador and trainer in her native country.
