Ryoko Yonekura, 34, shows off her award for Party Girl of the Year 2009. The former ballet dancer and TV actress turned up in a sparkly number and took the time to dispense some party advice of her own just in time for the festive season. "Don't be shy. Just let yourself go and have a good time," she suggested.

I always had wondered why the Japanese women are so confused with their role in contemporary Japanese society. Having above "role models" and facing the traditional expectations of Japanese men (and their own mothers) explains a lot about their diremption.

Just like in kindergarten, everybody gets a prize so nobody cries. Better for the self esteem that way.

Having the above role models is quality.

Wait...they give out prizes for partying now? Where were the judges for this when I was in university??

I'm guessing the term 'Party Girl' doesn't have the same meaning as it did when I was in university and they never got awards for it. Usually only STDs.
