"Wh-what?! Wh-why I would like to become an idol?! That's something impossible! I-it's not like I want to... become cuter... or something like that. I mean, I'm being serious! Completely serious!"
A junior in high school, Nao is a secret anime otaku who became an idol to become comfortable with being feminine. Described as a tsundere, Nao struggles with expressing herself, getting easily flustered and defensive. Though she wishes to express more girly qualities, she frequently denies the possibility that she could ever be considered cute and believed becoming an idol was impossible. Through the support of her friends and fellow idols, she decided to keep pushing herself forward in her idol career and towards her goals.
Knowing them since middle school, Nao is best friends with Rin, and Karen. Much to her chagrin, she ends up being playfully teased by the two constantly. Though teased, the three share a close bond, and she constantly worries about Karen's well being due to her frail body and past with illness.
In the Starlight Stage Orgel no Kobako event communication, Nao reveals that her more boyish wardrobe is in part due to her family members buying her boyish clothes instead of cute ones, that is why she is not very confident in wearing cuter clothes. 
Nao is an idol within the Cool category. Her basic card is Normal. She received three sets of Rare cards and five sets of S Rare cards with the titles "Shy Maiden", "Attraction & Gothic", "Banquet Maid", "CD Debut", "Magical Yule", "Innocent Bride", "To Promise", and "Summer Sky Surprise". She has two SSRs exclusive to Starlight Stage, titled "Over the Rainbow" and "Dress Up Night".
Nao Kamiya appears as a rival in the STAR OF FESTA mode for Honey Sound, Groovy Tune, and Funky Note. She is a B rank rival who can give her Name Card to the player while in the STANDARD or HARD difficulty. Obtaining her Name Card adds 30 points to the player's score after their performance.
