Miss Costume or Miss Friendship Award (at the most) - Universe is too far !

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

Agreed. Light years away with those knees.

She looks a bit scary in this photo, but she is in fact a real beauty.

She's on the runway and ready to fly. Beautiful.

We all see very different things, don't we? I'll go with beautiful here.

Best of luck to you, Miss Japan!

(I think she's lovely.)

Great looking woman, although I agree the legs aren't perfect. I think the outfit is quite nice -- very colourful and a great contrast with the black and red.

Great dress and prettier than usual entry for Japan, but what's with the Ultraman hair and makeup?

She's actually an ex-student of mine- lovely girl. I've read people complaining about her arms and now her knees. She was in the soft tennis club during junior and high school, training about 4 hours a day (and all day on weekends!). That kind of training will shape your body in certain ways. She's spent years trying to take off that tennis player's form but I guess it'll never be enough for the haters. Luv ya Ayako- I know how hard you've worked to get where you are.

**She's beautiful and you never know unless you talk with her for a while. It's not just the appearance but she must be really funny and smart I believe.

Nice but makeup a little too over the top, tone it down so you can see whats underneath!

Saw her on TV the other day and agree with Serrano above - she is beautiful....Good luck !

I am not exactly sure what is wrong with her legs or knees. They have shape and look as if she may have actually played sport. She looks quite nice, as you would expect from a Miss Universe contestant.

The event is to be held at Planet Hollywood, not Bally's (thus the PH logos in the background).

I am sure she is beautiful in some way or the other. She will be competing against Bodine Koehler. Look her up in the Net if you have time. Best of luck.

she will be lucky to get into top 10

nice to see a Japanese girl that goes to the gym instead of just not eatting...... i think her legs look great you can tell she works out.

Beautiful.

I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I prefer women with fit, not skinny, legs, but the face is #1 for my eyes. Her face is lovely. I am not a fan of the pulled back hair, but she doesn't look bad. I think there are other, much prettier styles that could be worn to greater effect.

Still, she is absolutely gorgeous.

I think her Ultraman makeup and hair are gorgeous ! Shuwatch !!!!

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

There's no way she can win against gaijin girls. Especially latin girls. They're goddesses!

Stunning! And that dress is beautiful too.

Finally watched the 2012 pageant last night and Ayako Hara, Miss Japan, was absolutely gorgeous! Freeze framed her walking in a swimsuit - fantastic legs and face - WOW! 4 seconds of time wasn't enough. Miss Puerto Rico DID pull my eyes too. ;)

Of course, there are many extremely beautiful women in the competition, Miss Japan was in MY Top 10.
