I want to introduce these actresses and models who are half Japanese and Filipino. I am really glad that Hafu models and actresses who aren’t mixed with white parents have been getting positive media exposure in Japan.
Sadly, many of them talk about their experience being bullied in school, but I think they have done so well for themselves. This is the proof that Japan is changing.
Media has such a huge influence, so I hope more people like them (minority HAFU) will be active in Japanese entertainment industry.
She is an international fashion model. In 2015, she was named the best body in Japan for the Kanto region. A small face and having long legs are important elements of Japanese beauty. Saya Kagawa is just that. Her face is so small and people say that she has this perfect “10 ttoushin” style. (１０頭身）–> Literally it means that her height is equivalent to the height of her own 10 faces.
She is half Japanese and Filipino. Her height is 170 cm!
