  • Description

    At the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium Sept. 30, forty-three beautiful girls showed off their charm and poise - contestants for the "Miss Tokyo" title. They were elected from 39 districts of greater Tokyo.

    Winner of the contest will be the hostess of Tokyo city for one year, and will represent the city at civic and other functions. An eighteen-member panel of judges composed of artists, writers, critics and doctors was assigned the task of choosing the winner in this contest sponsored by the Tokyo press and Nippon Educational Television.

    The accent was not only on beauty; health, intelligence and poise were important considerations too.

    And now the winner...Miss Masako Aikawa, the 19-year-old girl from the town district of Tokyo. Miss Aikawa was given a TV set, dresses and watches.

    Runners-up: 18-year-old Miss Eciko Nakamoto, who was adjudged second, and 24-year-old Miss Reiko Shimuzu, third.
