Absolutely stunning and such lovely teeth too.

How anyone can look at this picture and then still find something to complain about is beyond me.

Great teeth. yes sadly something that many Japanese women dont care about, NO snaggle shark teeth arnt cute, would you like your car to have a beautiful new paint job but have scratched and damaged bumpers put on afterwards. fresh straight teeth just add the perfect touch to a beautiful woman as in this photo.

Wow! Wow! Wow! All I can say is Wow!

No, actually I can also say this may well be the best photo of the day ever!

And a black belt in karate to boot! OMG..

Noypikan sounds like sour grapes. Anyway, won't be "international" playboy, etc. more like some local tarento or rich bloke. agree Miss Universe and similar are pointless but doesn't detract from the fact that she is good looking.......

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Lovely smile, healthy size and some thighs. Woman is fine. Viva Japon!

3 ( +5 / -2 )

what I hate about miss universe is how it's being so stereotype... Like a South East asian woman, must have Dark Hair and must look "South East Asian" or must look "Japanese" ... so my half blonde japanese friend cannot be Miss Japan because she has blonde hair and green eyes, eventhough she was born and raised in Japan.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Very beautiful!

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Yes, very natural beautiful.....obviously she cares about herself and others. Seems she would be an excellent Miss Universe. I hope she wins and inspires more women in Japan and around the world.

Being "born and raised in Japan" doesn't necessarily mean "automatically" Japanese...

And she's neither making the peace sign nor acting like she's eight years old. A sexy woman, acting like a sexy, grown-up woman.

She's got no chance on domestic TV.

Great teeth.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

Yummy. And bet she has a great personality too....!!

2 ( +7 / -5 )

Miss Universe participants are beautiful... but I can help to see just as a copy or mass product.... like dolls.. they may vary in skin color and hair do but in essence they seem the same.

dude,read my comments carefully, do they look like complains to you? it is a statement not a complain.

Female evolution?? so for you, women depending on men and marrying because of wealth is a Nature of women??

2 ( +5 / -3 )

This contest doesn't mean much to me, but it means the world, or universe, to her. She's done a lot to get there and I hope she wins and she's happy.

Go for it, Keiko Tsuji! Good luck!

2 ( +3 / -1 )

What does a Japanese look ? You are all confusing nationality with racial variants.....

2 ( +5 / -3 )

I like

Simply stunning in a natural way.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Keiko was born Oct 9th 1993 in Okinawa. She is 170cms tall; measurements are 84-64-89 cm. She has a black belt in karate and has ranked 3rd in National competition. She has a husky voice and can knock my teeth out any day.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Absolutely beautiful. Ganbatte!

See, y'all who downrated my comment really are in trouble once my wife finds out you downrated my post celebrating her beauty.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

A touch of class

JTDanMan: See, y'all who downrated my comment really are in trouble once my wife finds out you downrated my post celebrating her beauty.

They're just jealous!

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Looks Japanese to me...or actually any woman of Han blood. Just dazzling.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Lovely lady.

That beige skirt is covering up her massive afro.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

wow

1 ( +2 / -1 )

I approve!

She is OK but no Kurara Chibana, Miss Phillippines, Miss Puerto Rico and Miss India are smoking! http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/universe-2014-gallery-1.2068015

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Beautiful and classy in my mind.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Skin tone is definitely Japanese but her features appear more SE Asian to me. Also agree with Daniel Neagari, all these beauty contestants have a rubber stamp look about them. And also agree she is good looking!

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Fantastic. So hard to find a woman with nice teeth...

0 ( +6 / -6 )

noypik

sour grapes wasn't about her being beautiful but rather that you were maybe jealous that she will end up with some rich playboy or whatever and not you......

0 ( +0 / -0 )

For those saying she looks rather "exoic'. Keiko Tsuji was born and raised in Okinawa - so not quite the Yamato stock that we see on the mainland.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Lovely? Sure, but can she cook?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Why do you guys think so much of the beauty of teeth? its the whole package that makes a beautiful woman, what if you had a big nose or crooked one, or eyes too close together. beauty is all about symmetry, crooked multi-layered teeth are not symmetrical. if you think nice teeth isnt important then youve been in Japan too long.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

What a beautiful smile she has. I bet she's wonderful to talk with too. I bet she's smart too.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Gorgeous face, beautiful hair, no breasts to speak of and knobby knees. She is human after all!

Not sure how the contest works, but ... don't they have Japanese judges judging the Miss Japan contest?

Check google images for "Yukari Kuzuya", Miss Japan 2005, she looks closer to your friend's description than the stereotype you mention.

She`s very... delectable.

@noypikantoku You aren't going to change billions of years of male evolution with your complaining. Just like I can't change billions of years of female evolution...

'Jimizo

Yes, indeed best of luck to her, that is the whole point of Miss Universe anyway... and good for you too ;-)'

I'm not so sure that's the point. I have no interest in beauty contests - they all look pretty similar to me and the empty babble about world peace and children gets on my nerves. That said, I'm sure I wouldn't complain if any one of them sat next to me in my local bar and lit up a cigar. I've heard many Japanese women tell me about a former Japanese winner of this thing and they seemed to enjoy it and seemed quite proud.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Very average TBH. There is nothing about her that really exudes anything particularly Japanese. Surely there were better options out there..

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Looks Japanese to me...or actually any woman of Han blood.

Some people here may have ancestors with Han blood but it's hardly prevalent.

I thought she looks Thai. Fortunately I like them too, and every other race for that matter.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

healthy size and some thighs"

That's why:

Keiko Tsuji was born on October 9, 1993 in Okinawa, Japan. From a young age, she enjoyed swimming and karate. She joined the karate club after entering junior high school in 2004 and went on to represent Okinawa in national competitions. Keiko has also served as the captain of her karate club.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

The competition is a bit pointless and has very little impact other than to serve as a marketing exercise. She is a corker though.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Beautiful lady! Agree with OneHapa - she looks Thai or Vietnamese to me too. I'm sure she has a shot at winning...

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

She's beautiful. For some reasons, she looks Viet to me.

-2 ( +2 / -5 )

What does a Japanese look ? You are all confusing nationality with racial variants..... Best comment.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

too most j guys the most important talent is how well she can cook and raise the kids.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Meh. I've had better.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

She looks like my wife. Only not as beautiful to me.

Beauty pageants are what they are. Not my cup of tea. If you like them, that's fine.

But

I do not support Ms. Universe for the very simple reason that Donald Trump makes money off it.

Mocheake - thank you for that link. Miss Indonesia? Ding dong!

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Kaerimashita

uhm... how come negative feedbacks about BEAUTIFUL people always being seen as sour graping? I am not saying she's ugly, yes indeed she is beautiful, but I am just pointing out the other side of Miss Universe... Look at some of the comments above, you can see the stereotypical side of human beings because of Miss Universe.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

She's 3D and her eyes aren't big enough.

(><)

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

'she is now ready for marketing to International playboys,business tycoons, rich politicians, Alpha male stock brokers, etc.'

So? Best of luck to her. I'm glad to have married someone who earns good money ( not near the level you're talking about...).

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

For anyone saying she's 'exotic', get a grip! She just hasn't died her hair is all. I have a few female friends who keep their hair natural color and EVERYONE assumes they are Chinese. So don't kid yourselves. There are no features that are 'Han' or 'Thai'. It's how they dress or do make up, etc.

In any case, she's quite beautiful.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

I think she has receding gums

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Big shoulders, small hips. Some people mentioned she looks Thai. Reminds me of this one Thai girl in BKK...

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

She doesn't look Japanese.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

she is now ready for marketing to international playboys, business tycoons, rich politicians, alpha male stock brokers etc. Of all the events Human beings have started, Miss Universe and other beauty pageants are the ones that I don't see any point of having.

-7 ( +6 / -12 )

She is pretty. But she isnt at the level of a Miss Universe.

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

she is now ready for marketing to International playboys,business tycoons, rich politicians, Alpha male stock brokers, etc.. of all the events that human beings have made, Miss Universe and other beauty pageants are the ones that I don't see the point of having.
