Twenty-three-year-old Yurika Nakamoto from Onaha, Nishihara in Okinawa, was selected to represent Japan in the international beauty pageant called Miss Supranational, which will be held in Poland in December.

Nakamoto visited Mayor Akira Uema at the Nishihara town office, commenting,

“I would like to work on my English skill and culture for the upcoming international competition.”


Nakamoto was born in 1995, and she started playing volleyball when she was in Nishihara Higashi Elementary School.

She also played during her time in Koza High School as an expert attacker, and the team ranked amongst the best at the Okinawa Prefectural Tournament, and even competed in national competitions.

Nakamoto continued playing volleyball at Nagasaki International University, where she also got a teacher’s license in health and physical education.


Nakamoto learned about the calls for Miss Supranational Japan candidates on TV and decided to take the chance.

The Miss Supranational Japan competition was held at the TOKYO FM Hall on May 6, where her long limbs, shapely figure, honest character and Q&A session answers were highly received.

The photographer at the stage also commented, “She possesses undiscovered potential.” She also received the Top Model Award.


Nakamoto is 174 centimeters tall, and her young brother, Kenyu Nakamoto, in the all-Japan national junior volleyball team.

She currently works as a model and coaching volleyball at her hometown high school.

Nakamoto comments, “I would like to become an international model and athletic coach,” as she promises a great performance on the international stage.
