November 3, 2013 Ryukyu Shimpo
The Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau held the Miss Okinawa Contest 2015 in the theater building at the Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan on November 2. The contest awarded prizes to winners in three separate categories: 25-year-old Ayami Machida won Miss Sky Blue, 24-year-old Riyo Kishaba won Miss Cobalt Blue and 24-year-old Azusa Ahagon won Miss Green Gracious. The three winners will work as goodwill tourism ambassadors for Okinawa from next January. They will strive to convey the charm of Okinawa to people both inside and outside the prefecture.
Machida said, “I would like to be grateful to my parents and friends who supported me.” Kishaba said, “I would like to carry the thoughts of the other seven contestants who advanced to the finals, and do my best.” Ahagon said, “Working with Okinawan people, I would like to promote Okinawan tourism.”
