Michiko was the 2nd runner-up at Miss Universe Japan 2011 pageant. She was one of the most favorites in MUJ2011 and quite a few fans said MUJ had wasted her!
However, some says she does not look too “Japanese” because of her brown hair. Since Miss World normally appreciates beauties that represent the ethnic beauty of her country, she really needs to get rid of her brown hair.
This is the very first year that a separate Miss World Japan will be chosen, because for more than 40 years, the International Culture Association (the organizers of the Miss International pageant) was the one who handled the Miss World franchise until they gave it up last year. So, a new franchise holder, Koo International Co.,Ltd. (International Institute of Beauty), will be in-charge for the selection of Miss World Japan 2013 to the international competition in Indonesia this September.
