The three local representatives at Miss Sake International 2023 will be announced during the grand final of Miss Sake Vietnam which is scheduled to take place on May 28 at the Mikazuki Japanese Da Nang Hotel in Da Nang.

According to the organisers, 22 finalists will compete in Japanese kimono and Vietnamese Ao Dai (traditional long dress) parts.

The final night will also feature talent showcases, as well as presentations by the finalists.

This marks the first time that Miss Sake has been held in the country for all single women between the ages of 18 and 40.

The purpose of the event aims to celebrate the full beauty of Vietnamese women, select an inspiring face to represent the nation at international pageants, and to strengthen ties between the country and Japan.

This year's event aims to mark the 50th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations between both sides, an event which occurred back in 1973. The qualification round was held in April and May, with 22 contestants being chosen to progress to the final round of Miss Sake Vietnam 2023.

Each year saw the Miss Sake competition seek representatives who will be responsible for promoting Japanese history and culture through sake, with the event currently in its 10th year in Japan and other countries.
