    Help me to understand. Is she a ''runway model'' these days? Is her height (or lack thereof) pose a problem for her modeling career? I'm guessing she's about 5' 4'' or 5' 5'' tall. I always thought your classic runway models were much much taller. I remember seeing a picture of Itano Tomomi modeling designer handbags years ago in Japan and they posed her standing between two European models who appeared to be over 6 feet taller. And I remember laughing at the caption which, more or less, read------''this is why Japanese women do not become runway fashion models''.

    In Europe and other Western countries, yes, the height requirement is high (especially for runway models), but they're typically much taller than an average Japanese person. I found a recent list of the top 12 models in Japan from Marie Claire and it seems the models are anywhere between 5'5 and 5'10. https://www.marieclaire.com.au/japanese-models

    Thank you for that list. I realize I'm very very biased but Kojiharu seems thousands of times more attractive than any and every woman on that list. I guess I don't have much of future in picking Japanese runway fashion models.

    I think Nyannyan is gorgeous, but probably not the typical aesthetic for runway models. I could see her in advertisements, though. I thought her work for Peach John was perfect.

    Not really "runway model" as such. But "model" for her brand herlipto, yes

    I assume that even without being a runway model she is doing very well for herself and is probably enjoying the ambassador thing more than typical modelling gigs.

    I am STILL completely convinced that Yuko's plan is to wear Kojiharu down and they'll wind up getting married. It's just taking longer than I thought.
