Miss Japan Pageant
The Miss Japan pageant had existed from 1952 to 1997. During that period, the pageant managed to produce three top 5 finalists and a winner, Akiko Kojima, who claimed the first crown for Japan in 1959. After a semi-finalist placement in 1975, Japan managed to place only one more time prior to 1997, in 1988, where Mizuho Sakaguchi took 4th place.

Miss Universe Japan Pageant
Since its founding in 1998, the Miss Universe Japan pageant has been run by acclaimed French national director, Ines Ligron. It has achieved the impressive result of having one semifinalist, two runner-ups, and one winner at the Miss Universe pageant within the short span of 10 years. Ines Ligron was catapulted to the international spotlight when Riyo Mori won Japan's second Miss Universe crown in Mexico City, on May 28, 2007.

Miss Universe Japan 2003
Miyako Miyazaki is a fashion model who won the Miss Universe Japan title in 2003, and placed 5th at the Miss Universe 2003 pageant held in Panama City, Panama. She is considered by most to be, physically, the best Miss Universe Japan so far. Her catwalk is still unrivaled at Miss Universe Japan. She was involved in the training of Kurara Chibana and Riyo Mori before their participations at the Miss Universe pageant.

Riyo Mori, a ballet dancer from Shizuoka won the Miss Universe Japan pageant and later went on to claim the Miss Universe title in Mexico City, Mexico. She is Japan's first Miss Universe in 48 years. During the crowning of Mori with the official Mikimoto crown, it slipped and nearly fell to the floor. Mori was able to hold on to the crown, which is made of diamonds and pearls and is valued at over US$250,000.
After the refusal of the 1st runner up Rei Hamada to take over the vacant national title, 2nd runner up Akiko Chubachi held the title of Miss Universe Japan 2007 and completed the remaining reign.
The two delegates who also advanced to the top 5 were Maiko Kitagawa and Reiko Iida, while the rest of the participating candidates were Ako Koizumi, Anna Sado, Kiko Matsuyama, Meri Wakui, Yuko Ishizaka and Yu Kizaki.
