Ogimi played on teams which were part of Japan's 12-year change from a regional women's football team to a world-class one.
She was a member of the team that won the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. This win caused a burst of national pride in Japan, which was hungry for good news in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Ōgimi played on the team which won a silver medal in the 2012 Summer Olympics at London. Her play was highlighted when she scored a crucial goal in the first game of the Olympic tournament and in semi-final game. She also scored a goal against the US team in the championship game.
