Maisko in one sentence – Itai is a charming Japanese beauty queen with a lovely smile.


I love the fact that I’m representing my country.

Education is first and beauty second.

There is nothing more beautiful than an attractive, smart and well educated young woman.

A woman can make a good decision only if she follows her heart.

Interesting Facts:

  • Since she was raised in the traditional and conservative way she had difficulty walking the catwalk in nothing but bikini and a swimsuit. Fortunately, she had overcome her shyness and shared her beauty with the world.
  • In 2010 she was crowned Miss Universe Japan 2010.
  • She is fluent in Japanese, English, Spanish and Portuguese.
