Updated on January 18, 2017

Beautiful Japanese actresses with Karina, Chara, Koyuki, Keiko Kitagawa, Yukie Nakama, Masami Nagasawa and more.

Here are some of my favorite Japanese actresses.
You know I just noticed that most of these ladies have ties to Anime, Manga or Japanese monster movies....

Koyuki  - Japanese Actresses

Japanese model and actress, Koyuki was born on December 18th,1976, in Zama, Kanagawa-ken, Japan.

She frequently appears in Japanese print and television marketing campaigns for Panasonic.
Koyuki has appeared in ten movies, but you may remember her from The Last Samurai as Taka, the wife of a Samurai slain by the character Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise).
Recently she appeared in Blood: The Last Vampire based on the Japanese anime of the same name.
The movie is about a 400-year-old half human-half vampire girl named Saya (played by Gianna Jun) who hunts vampires in partnership with humans and seeks to destroy Onigen (played by Koyuki), the most powerful of vampires.

Keiko Kitagawa was born on August 22nd, 1986 in Hyōgo Prefecture and she grew up in Kobe, Japan.
You may have seen this Japanese actress and former model in 2006's The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, as Reiko.
When Keiko was little she wanted to be a doctor, but when she was discovered by a talent scout she wanted to become a model.
This bothered her parents who wanted her to stay with her studies, but they relented on two conditions.
One, she that she put her studies first and graduate from the university she was attending, and two that if she made no progress in modeling, that she give it up within a year.
Well she accomplished one, graduating from Meiji University in Tokyo with a degree in commercial science.
Two was really easy, because with a WEEK of joining a talent agency, she was picked as an actress and a model.
Her acting career began when she landed the role of Rei Hino (Sailor Mars) on the live action television series of the anime and manga, Sailor Moon.
Keiko has gone on to appearing in twelve films, four TV series, write three books and release a CD.

Then came the top-rated Japanese TV series Gokusen (2002), a live-action version of the popular manga of the same name.
Her role as Kumiko Yamaguchi really put her over the top and established her as a star.
Of course her commercials haven't hurt any, with Yukie doing ads for Nissin Chicken Ramen, Japan Railways, Lotte Xylitol, Asahi and Shiseido that appear almost everywhere in Japan.
Yukie is a very prolific performer, having done over thirty TV shows and fifteen movies including Ring 0: Birthday, the prequel to Ring.

    I think Japanese women are really beautiful. I started watching Japanese dramas since I was a kid. Most actresses I know are already in their 30's or 40's now. One of my favorite is Matsushima Nanako. Even in her late 30's, I still think she's stunning.

    Interesting hub, voted up!:)

    Exquisite feminine beauty, is most certainly not limited to one culture and/or "race" of women. In my opinion, all women are perfection of creation/evolution. But, I do have a general preference for Japanese women.
