Keiko Tsuji Crowned Miss Universe Japan 2014

Submitted by • April 1, 2014

Miss Universe Japan was created in 1998 in response to Japan's then-recent lack of finalists at the Miss Universe pageant. It is a branch from the former Miss Japan pageant.

When the Miss Universe Japan pageant was founded in 1998, it was ran by French national director Ines Ligron. Until 2007, the organisation managed to produce one winner, two top 5 runners-up and one top 15 semifinalist at the Miss Universe pageant. Ligron was catapulted to the international spotlight when Riyo Mori won the second Miss Universe crown for Japan in 2007. In 2009, Ligron left the organisation which resulted in a different team now leading the organisation.
Forty-three Japanese women took part in the Miss Universe Japan beauty pageant.
