Who is Saori Yoshikawa?

Saori Yoshikawa and Mami Yamasaki are Japanese celebrities that have achieved notoriety for their work in the Japanese entertainment industry but they do not work in the same sub-set of the entertainment business entirely. We will first focus on the career of Saori Yoshikawa.

Can you name some of your favorite race queens? Chances are that the first name that comes to your mind is Korean racing Queen Hwang Mi Hee. Or you may be thinking of the stunning Japanese race queen and actress Miho Yoshioka. Well, you probably have not heard of Saori Yoshikawa. If you live in the United States you most probably have not heard her name as the Japanese supermodels are really not known by the average person in the United States. Not to be confused with Saori Yamamoto, this beautiful Japanese celebrity is a native of Aichi Prefecture and started her career as a race queen in 2007. She was born on May 6, 1987 and she stands at 165 centimeters tall. Her body measurements are as follows:

Saori Yoshikawa and her photo book releases

It can be easy to confuse two Japanese supermodels that have the same name. In order for them to get more public exposure, the common practice of many Japanese supermodels and race queens is to release photo books. Saori has released one photo book so far titled Synchro. In addition to this, she has released 4 digital photo books including two with the same name. They are called “Colors.” The other two are “Meet the Girl” and of course, Synchro once again. I don’t know why they came up with the same title for two different photo book releases. Saori has also released 6 DVDs, the latest one being “Resolution” in 2010.

Saori Yoshikawa is also a gravure idol in addition to a race queen

Like many of her fellow supermodels and race queens, Saori has done photo shoots in school uniforms, lingerie, and even bikinis. She has got a sort of really great cuteness that will attract fans from all over the world. Saori Yoshikawa also likes to ride scooters in order to stay fit. Whatever she is doing, she is doing something right because this lady is really beautiful. On an interesting side note, Yoshikawa shares the same birth year with former Morning Musume member Makoto Ogawa. But Makoto is cuter than Saori.


Who is Mami Yamasaki?

We now go from discussing about a race queen and fashion model to another celebrity that is more well-known and that one is Mami Yamasaki. Mami Yamasaki is a Japanese fashion model and actress that is best known for her wide variety of work in the entertainment industry including roles in TV, film, and stage. These include the horror drama series called Hitokowa and the stage adaptation of the manga series called Umimachi Diary. This means that this manga series was adapted into a stage play or stage production. While she was in her high school years, Mami represented her birth city of Osaka, Japan in a national rhythmic gymnastics competition. It was in 2004 that Mami started to get herself known when she won the Miss Magazine Special Reader Award as part of the yearly Miss Magazine Gravure Contest.
