Why so popular ?
Japanese girls (not only Japanese models) are very popular all over the world. This is due to the development of Japanese mass culture, which extends beyond Japan in the form of anime, doram (the so-called Japanese television series), Japanese music (j-pop and j-rock), and also in the form of photo shoots of Japanese models.
The model in Japan is most often a photo model, rather than a podium model, as in the West. Popular girls-models in Japan are called gravure idol and their photosessions, including rather frank, periodically appear in men’s magazines, in photobooks, on disks and on the Internet. Gravure idol – only one of the incarnations of the cult of “idols” in Japan.
Idol is a young beautiful girl who can be both a singer, actress and model. As the popularity grows, well-known Japanese women can move from one category to another: for example, a model can begin to sing and act in films and dramas, while a popular actress, at the height of her fame, records one or two music albums and starts to withdraw for photobooks and magazines. The most beautiful Japanese idols and models will be discussed in our Top 5 rating.
Top 5 Japanese models (idols)
5. Ayumi Hamasaki
Ayumi Hamasaki was born on October 2, 1978 in the city of Fukuoka. At the age of 14 Ayumi moved to Tokyo to start a career as a photo model, but due to her small height (156 cm) she had to retrain to a singer, which at first she also failed. After the failure of the first rap single, Ayumi again tries to change her profession and tries herself in the film and serials, which again are badly received by the public. The fate of Ayumi Hamasaki changed her acquaintance with producer Max Matsuura, who heard Ayumi singing in karaoke and sent her to study vocal in New York. When Ayumi was studying in America, she and Matsuura often corresponded and the producer, impressed by the style of her letters, advised her to write and perform her own songs. Own songs made Ayumi Hamasaki a star.
