Tsuji expressed her goals for the contest which will be held in Miami, Florida next January. She said, “As I study dietetics at university, I would like to convey the charms of Japanese food, which is known to be healthy.”

Tsuji moved to Nagasaki prefecture for her studies. She has been a karate practitioner since elementary school, competing in inter-high school championships and national athletic meets. She claimed victory in the Kyushu Karate tournament in 2012. Members of a support organization for Tsuji, Kiyono Tamaki and Hideo Higa, accompanied Tsuji to the Ryukyu Shimpo Office.
