Along with fellow AV actresses Yui Saito and Midori Hayama, Nao Saejima formed part of the pop group RaCCo-gumi, which in 1988 released the single Lemon Kiss. She retired in 1990, but resumed her AV career again for a short time in 2002 after an absence of 12 years. During this time she worked as a nude model while traveling between the United States and Japan.
In later years Nao Saejima also worked as a writer, a punk group vocalist, and a yoga instructor. After her retirement from public appearances in 2002 it was reported that she was working as an artist. In a sign of Nao Saejima’s international popularity, the Taiwanese rock band Goodbye! Nao Saejima! was named in tribute to her.
