Up-and-coming Japanese Beauties

 

 

I have been strongly impressed by British "lads' mags" which feature many pictures of sexy British females (some are American though). I shall pick up a series of fanciable young Japanese women who I would choose for cover girls of British lads' mags. They are generally known as idols or bishoujo (beautiful girls) who frequently appear in Japanese men's magazines or act in TV soaps. Of course there are some others to watch, but these are my choice. Enjoy seeing their profiles and images of them (They may have different attractions from what the likes of Brittney, Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Brook have). If you are from Taiwan, you will see some of the girls showed below in the near future (or you may already know some).

SHAKU YUMIKO

Date of Birth: 12/6/1978
Birthplace: Tokyo Met
Height 5'4"1/2

Shaku is arguably the most fanciable Japanese babe at the moment. It has been claimed that any magazine's sales will rise when she models its cover girl. Besides her perfect figure, she has also been a TV favourite since she became a member of the Wonderful girls in the midnight show, and her eccentric character has attracted several Japanese comedians as well as her fans. I would choose her particularly for a front page girl in British lads' mags among sexy Japanese females.
