Karolina Shiino, a 26-year-old native of Ternopil, who recently won the title of Miss Japan 2024, has given up her crown. The Ukrainian has Japanese citizenship and has been living in the country for over 20 years, but many netizens disagreed with the jury's choice, saying that she "does not reflect true Japanese beauty."
