An event to crown the 2016 Miss Okinawa was held hosted by the Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau (OCVB) on November 8 at Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan.

Anna Okuhama, 23-year-old vocational school student from Ginowan, won Miss Sky Blue, Kumiko Morita, 22-year-old travel company employee was awarded Miss Cobalt Blue and Yuka Shinzato, 27-year-old advertising agency employee, became Miss Clean Green Gracious.

The three beauty queens will take part in events to promote Okinawan tourism from January next year.
Okuhama said with a smile, “I felt a heavy responsibility to carry out my mission when I was crowned with the tiara.”

“I would like to promote the charming aspects of Okinawa to tourists using the experience and knowledge that I have acquired through working at a travel company,” Morita said.

Shinzato said, “I am looking forward to serving in my role as Miss Okinawa and hope to attract many tourists here.”
