Miss International Contestants Experience Beauty and Culture of Japan

Seventy seven young women are currently in Japan to compete for the 2018 Miss International title. During the past week, they have enjoyed a number of activities such as visiting temples and shrines, trying Japanese delicacies and learning more about age old Japanese traditions, such as tea ceremonies. The biggest highlight for every girl competing is getting a true glimpse into what life is really like in Japan. Miss International has, once again, planned an extensive schedule filled with activities that will take the girls to different places in the country. Here are some of the highlights so far:
