Raimu Kaminashi

Raimu is half-Japanese on her mother’s side, half-Nigerian on her father’s side and identifies as a mixed-race Japanese. She was raised in Gifu Prefecture and has participated in national competitions as a track athlete. Raimu wants to use the platform to show the second-generation children of African descent that they can achieve anything they want to. In one of her interviews, she had mentioned, “I hope we can live in a social environment where black hafu children, who currently aren’t represented in many areas in Japan, aren’t typecast and can take pride in their identities from being able to be active in various fields besides sports like arts, fashion and politics; I dream of a Japan where they can freely pursue their dreams.” She hopes to push up against unspoken cultural biases and norms at every opportunity and aspires to become a role model to second-generation children with African roots.

Yuki Sonoda

Yuki also has a dual heritage as her mother is from Philippines while her father hails from Kagoshima. The stunning beauty has the confidence and aura to command a room and that will be her advantage at the national pageant. She was placed as the first runner-up at Miss Supranational Japan 2016 and later and represented Japan at Miss Asia Pacific International 2017 where she was placed in the Top 10. She wants to use the platform to raise awareness about women’s health and drawing inspiration from her personal experience, she wants to use the power of her being able to speak in three languages as a medium to reach out the masses. She really believes in the power of action as she is seen quoting Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” She is one of the mega favorites for the title.
