Japanese women are by far some of the most beautiful women in the world. They seem to glow from within.

There is a term they use “Mie-nai Oshareh” which means “unseen beauty.” 

Japanese women feel that beauty is not only on the outside but on the inside as well. That would explain why even though we can see their flawless skin and silky hair, we also notice an inner confidence that shows in their poise and grace while acting and modeling.
