Whilst this year’s Miss Nippon contest in Tokyo featured the usual soporific question and answer session that allows each contestant to profess their love of children and hopes for world peace, it did break with tradition somewhat by asking the finalists to “use your fan to express your feelings right now” during the kimono section. A challenging request it has to be said, and one that resulted in apparent expressions of confusion,
and other things altogether.
Even the bashful covering of a belch.
Yet the organisers did conform to tradition in regards to the obligatory bikini round, although not eating for at least a week prior to performing appears to have been a prerequisite.
