The Miss Nippon Contest (ミス日本コンテスト, Misu nippon kontesuto) is Japanese beauty pageant. In the past 56 competitions, the total number of applications is 118,794 people and the Grand Prix is 54 people. It started in 1950 by the Yomiuri Shimbun.[2] and is held every year by the "Miss Nippon Association".


1st (1950) Miss Nippon Fujiko Yamamoto

In 1945, after the end of World War II, Japan entered a difficult era of reconstruction. Relief supplies "LARA supplies" sent from the United States saved Japanese children suffering from malnutrition. An urgent resolution of appreciation was adopted at the plenary session of members of the House of Representatives in 1947 for this act.[2]

In 1950, a female goodwill ambassador was sent to thank the American people.[2]The "Miss Nippon Contest" was held to select goodwill ambassadors. Fujiko Yamamoto, who later became one of Japan's leading movie actresses, won the first Miss Nippon.[3]

After that, there was a time of interruption, and in 1968 it was the Wada Laboratory (formerly Wada Milk), a beauty research group represented by Shizuo Wada, who advocated and practiced the Wada-style figure ring method as slimming health beauty. It was. At that time, Shizuo Wada was also in the limelight as a leader of television calisthenics.[4]

"Miss Nippon" visited countries around the world with the letter of former Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi and helped pave the way for the success of the Expo '70.[5]

Wada Laboratory (Wada Shoji Co., Ltd.), which hosted the first revival tournament in 1968 to the 49th tournament in 2017, was formed on July 1, 2017, with the aim of further developing Miss Nippon. The hosting of the Miss Nippon Contest and the management of Miss Nippon were transferred to the Miss Nippon Association, and the philosophy was inherited.[5][6]

Meanwhile, Yuko Wada of Miss Nippon (later married to Kaoru, the second son of Shizuo) from 1995 to 1979 became the chairman of the Miss Nippon Contest.[5]

In 2019, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Miss Nippon's resurrection, "50 Years of Japanese Beauty, Showa, Heisei, and New Age Beauty" was released.[2]

Ai Wada, who has been the "Miss Nippon Chief Manager" since August 1, 2020, has been appointed as the "Miss Nippon Contest Tournament chairman". Kentaro Wada is appointed as "Miss Nippon Contest Secretariat Representative". A new system by brothers and sisters has started.[7]

Eligibility for application[edit]

Participants are open to the public, and anyone who meets the following conditions can apply (as of 2021).[2]

  1. Having Japanese nationality
  2. Being unmarried

Selection method[edit]

Applicants who pass the document screening participate in any of the regional competitions held in several locations nationwide. Participants selected as "finalists" at the district tournament advance to the finals of the Miss Nippon Contest, and the winners of the Miss Nippon Grand Prix and others are decided in the end.[8]

As with many modern Miss Contests, the criteria for selection are not limited to appearance, but the Japanese national team will be selected based on the world competition to be held at a later date, such as "Miss Universe Japan". Unlike the contest, Miss Nippon's basic policy is to select "the highest level of Japanese beauty that is completed in Japan." In particular, in the internal examination, "education" and "feeling" are emphasized.[8]

  • Shizuo Wada Special Award Miss Nippon (newly established in 2015)[2]
    • Until now, Miss Nippon has been selected by open recruitment, but Shizuo Wada, the founder of Wada Laboratory (1922–2006), worked hard to revive Miss Nippon and laid the foundation for Japan's diet. To those who have already shown remarkable performance and cannot easily enter the contest in a busy position, with the idea of "giving honor and profit to beautiful women" in honor of Shizuo's achievements. This is a celebrity special award to commend a woman with great potential as Miss Nippon from the desire to support women with wonderful qualities of beauty and health, regardless of whether or not they have. Judging is a collegial recommendation system by the contest secretariat with four disciples who supported Miss Nippon together with Shizuo. As of 2021, only three people, Airi Hatakeyama and Marin Minamiya and Kiyou Shimizu, received this recommendation award.[10][11]
  • In the past, Miss Elegant, Miss Venus, Miss Nippon "Photogenic", Miss Nippon "Sky Day", Miss Nippon "International Friendship", Miss Nippon "Miss Swimsuit", Miss Nippon "Nature" (2003–2014) ) And other awards. In addition, there was a time when the contestants of the final tournament were also given the title of Miss Nippon. In fact, until the early 1990s, all the people who participated in the Grand Prix deciding tournament attended the Grand Prix deciding tournament with red and white letters and a sash that says "Miss Nippon" on the border. Currently, no sashes are hung during the judging of the final competition, but after the winners of each award are decided, the sashes on which the award-winning awards are written will be hung by the judges. At the official event of Miss Nippon attendance, we will attend with the award-winning tasuki.[12]
