The Miss World Japan organization hosted the coronation ceremony for the 2021 edition of the pageant on 12th October 2021 where stunning delegates from all over the country competed for the national title and the opportunity to represent Japan at Miss World 2021. At the end of the event, Tamaki Hoshi was crowned as the new queen as she succeeded Miss World Japan 2020 Maria Kaneya for the title.

The 20-year-old media content writer, Tamaki bested 30 finalists for the title. Hoshi is a third-year student at Waseda University's Faculty of Social Sciences. She lived in the US for 15 years before deciding to return to Japan to pursue higher education. Hoshi had also participated in Miss World Japan 2020 where she was placed among the runner-ups.



After winning the title, she took to her social media to share, "I am honored to represent Japan. I feel responsible as a representative of young Japanese people. I have one month left until the World Championships in Puerto Rico. I want to do my best by taking advantage of my English and Japanese pride."

The organization had crowned Maria Kaneya as the official representative for the upcoming pageant of Miss World in September last year but, unfortunately, Maria Kaneya will not participate at the 70th Miss World competition this December. Hence, the newly crowned Tamaki Hoshi will represent Japan at the Miss World 2021 pageant, as Japan is yet to pioneer a win at Miss World.



Miss World 2021 will be the 70th edition of the Miss World pageant to be held on 16th December 2021 at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica will crown her successor at the end of the event.

Congratulations queen!
