BEAUTY TALKS WITH MIEKO TAKEUCHI
Miss Supranational Japan 2015



Q: Hello Mieko. How have you been doing lately?

Mieko: I’ve been great since the last time I met you! (Laughter)

Q: Let’s roll dice right away because we don’t have much time here. How have you been preparing for the pageant?

Mieko: First of all, I was told that my legs were too thin so I had to work out on that. So I hired a professional trainer to increase my leg muscles. But that’s just the physical goal that I’ve been working really hard to achieve. The ultimate preparation is to be able to endure the mental and emotional stress of competing with more than 80 beautiful women from around the world. That is where my pageant coach and national director comes into the picture. So I have both physical as well as mental preparations being taken care of by experts.

Q: Miss Supranational is relatively unknown here in Japan. Was it hard to get sponsors?

Mieko: Oh, that is actually not true! Last year’s delegate, Waka-chan, did well as our Japanese representative. She is now very popular because she won the monomane contest, while mimicking Hikaru Utada. That gave some boost to the Miss Supranational brand name here in Japan. But basically, after my stint at my previous pageant last year, a lot of people got to know me and have ever since believed in me. When I was given the opportunity to represent Japan at Miss Supranational this year, many people came to offer their assistance, and I am really blessed to have them.

Q: Do you feel any pressure to win the Miss Supranational title?

Mieko: Of course I do feel a little bit of pressure, but I think the pressure will be more intense when I get to Poland.

Q: What is the biggest pressure that you feel about the competition?

Mieko: I am already 27 years old and this is going to be my last international pageant. I don’t want to go to Poland and think of this whole thing as a paid vacation. I really want to win, because a lot of opportunities will be at stake. The Japanese pageant industry is now peaking up, and I feel that being Miss Supranational Japan, I automatically become the face of Miss Supranational in our country. If I don’t do well in the competition, we might miss the chance to get the attention of the public, as well as the business executives who are just waiting for opportunities to sponsor a pageant like this. So the pressure, basically, is to produce the desired result, and that is to win the pageant.

Q: So, why did you choose to compete at Miss Supranational? Why not just quit pageantry, and go on with your career?

Mieko: That’s a good question! My national director explained to me, very thoroughly, the concept of Miss Supranational and I felt that this is the right pageant for me! At this age, finally, I found a pageant that perfectly suits me! (laughter) Last year at Miss Grand International, I had to quit my job because I had to make myself available in the event that I would win the crown. That was a huge risk and sacrifice on my part because in Japan, we really need to work as a social norm. When I did not win, I had to start from scratch, and looked for a job here in Kobe. So now, I have a career working for a reputable clothing company, and I believe that Miss Supranational is a title that does not ask for her reigning queen to quit everything, and fulfill the beauty queen job full time. If I win the title, I can still work here, and at the same time, make myself available to fulfill my duties as the reigning queen.

Q: The Japanese public does not really know that beauty queens can actually have a career and a crown on her head. Is that what you are trying to say?

Mieko: Yes. That is exactly the thing that I want the Japanese public to know. Beauty queens are not what they think we are. We are not unemployed models who have nothing else to do with our lives but to chase a crown. We can have a career and a title. Especially here in Japan, we do not have stories wherein we can use pageants as a way to get out of poverty. That is not how our society works here. We need to have a job, and Miss Supranational is a pageant that supports women to have a career, and a purpose in this world.

Q: If you become the next Miss Supranational, what will you do and why?

Mieko: The biggest advantage that I have is the fact that in Japan right now, the business sector is moving exponentially. The Tokyo Olympics is inspiring a lot of companies to find opportunities to promote their products. The Olympics may be five years from now, but actually, I can say that now is right time to grab the opportunity and make Miss Supranational an established brand name before 2020. If I become Miss Supranational, I am confident that the Japanese media will follow my journey, and in the process, it will gain massive support from Japanese companies globally. I will do everything that I can to give Miss Supranational a whole different level of exposure and media mileage because this pageant is exactly what we need now to give people a better understanding of what beauty queens can do.

Q: Just like what is now happening with Yuri Uchida, the reigning International Queen of Coffee?

Mieko: Exactly! Yuri is my friend, and look at what she has achieved now! The Coffee Queen pageant was basically an unknown pageant before Yuri won, but look at where it has gone now, and where Yuri has been to? She is everywhere, and is proudly wearing her sash and crown. As far as the Colombian coffee industry is concerned, you can easily spot her. Coffee producers and cafe shops want her to promote their products, and right now she is the face of the biggest coffee producer in western Japan. What I am trying to say is, it means a lot for Japanese people to win something before we will actually embrace it. It is just part of our culture and mindset.

Q: What do you think is biggest misconception about beauty queens in Japan?

Mieko: It is true that beauty contestants in Japan are mainly used to promote commercial products and services that are meant to make women look more beautiful, or lose more weight, or things that are mainly superficial. I am not saying that it is a bad thing, but I believe that many pageants in Japan lack social causes. I want to correct the wrong impression that beauty queens are superficial beings who just do as they are told by sponsors. That is what I like the most about Miss Supranational because I have studied the reign of Ms Asha Bhat. She has been doing a great job championing things that are close to her heart, and gets to keep her title and crown without being enslaved by irrational demands of sponsors. This is why Miss Supranational is a great pageant to introduce to our country.

Q: Is there any charity work that you plan to support if ever you win the title?

Mieko: I was told that Miss Supranational does not have a specific advocacy that the queen has to do. If you are the reigning queen, you basically have the choice on what to do with the crown on your head. If I am blessed to get that crown, I will try to reach out to the various JICA offices in countries that I will intend to visit. I have researched on the countries that Ms Asha Bhat has visited and I learned that she was invited several times to crown the Miss Supranational national winners, such as in Myanmar, Thailand, Mauritius and other countries. So it is a matter of personal initiative on my part to contact a Japanese organization that does social and charitable works in those countries that I will hopefully visit, and from there, I can get myself involved in helping them with the time given to me. However, I have to say that I have to strengthen my advocacy, first, here in Japan. Bullying and teenage suicide are at an alarming stage right now, so I want to be a spokesperson for anti-bullying campaigns in Japan.

Q: Finally, your message to your fans…

Mieko: Thank you very much for all the wonderful words that you always post on my Instagram and Facebook account. I am always encouraged by your messages. I am very blessed that there are many people out there who believe in me. Because of you, I promise to do my best in Poland. I will update you about Miss Supranational 2015 and beautiful Poland, so please follow us in our social media account. Don’t forget to support my friends who will also join me in Poland – Miss Israel, my roommie at Miss Grand Miss Macau, as well as Miss Colombia!

Like she said above, this will be her last international pageant. She is already 27 years old.
She joined at MUJ 2014, and was one of the Top 15. Until now, I still can't believe how she lost to that Nagasaki girl!

She is such a hottie! :-* I wouldn't guess she is already 27. I have seen girls who are 20 are look older than her.
And she is much more beautiful than Japanese MW candidate or Miss Universe candidate IMHO
