Instead of celebrating her crown, Ariana Miyamoto is already finding the need to defend it.
Japan's newest Miss Universe contestant broke barriers when she was recent chosen to represent her country. But because the 20-year-old is the daughter of a Japanese woman and a black man from America, some are questioning whether she really is Japanese enough to hold the title.
According to Japanese websites, comments on Twitter ranged from, "Is it okay to select a hafu to represent Japan?" to "Because this is Miss Universe Japan, don't you think hafu are a no-no." Hafu is a Japanese term used to refer to someone who is biracial.
In an interview with press, Miyamoto insisted that while she doesn't "look Japanese" on the outside, on the inside, there are many Japanese things about her.
In addition to being born and raised Nagasaki, the young adult also is a Japanese citizen who can speak the language fluently.
While some critics have been vocal about their hopes of having another contestant take her spot, others have shown their support for the newly crowned beauty queen.

This ALL NEW episode of BFP Paranormal Radio focuses on 2 famous Japanese cryptids; The Kappa and the Hibagon.
The Kappa is a creature from Japanese mythology said by some to inhabit areas of Japan. Individuals have reported seeing this strange water dwelling being that is known for pulling pranks, and sometimes killing animals and human beings. This humanoid cryptid's existence goes back centuries, and continue on today. Is the Kappa a living creature or a myth?
The Hibagon, or Japanese sasquatch, is a cryptid shrouded in mystery. Often sighted on or near Mount Hiba, the Hibagon inhabits forest regions similar to the North American Bigfoot or Himilayan Yeti. The Hibagon is described as a "black creature with white hands and large white feet, standing about five feet tall." Want To know more information? Tune in!
One thing that distinguishes a traditional Japanese Reiki practitioner from an American Reiki practitioner is knowledge, understanding and daily usage of the only ritual taught by Usui Sensei ... the Hatsu Rei Ho.
Today's offering is but one way to perform this vital ritual ... enjoy the experience!
At The Halau, all of our Reiki practitioners learn this ritual and incorporate it as part of their daily Reiki practice ... because Reiki is not something you pick up and put down like an object. It is a Shamanic way of BEing ... and daily practice of the Hatsu Rei Ho is the difference between a practitioner that isn't really sure about what energies s/he is wielding, and a practitioner that wields Energy with Certainty.
