You know that feeling when your local mahjong club struggles to get girls to join but fails miserably, and yet somewhere in Japan four hot girls are seated playing a game, somewhere. These are some of the top Goddesses of Japanese Mahjong.

#10 Jenn Barr

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. A blonde girl with blue eyes, crushing you in mahjong? That can be hot. She adds the american flavor in Japanese mahjong, in the good way.

 

#9 Tezuka Sakiku

Professional of free parlors. She has been a sex symbol in the mahjong world from while back, and she still has her charms. Maybe because we still love gamblers. She is in a Mahjong Idol Group (much like AKB48, except for female pros) called Suzume alongside Ueda Yui, Naruse Akemi and Sakuraba Fumie.

                               

#8 Miyauchi Kozue

Professional at the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. She’s beautiful, talented and a warmhearted pro. Her beauty supports her talent and natural kindness.

 

#7 Oririn Heart

From the Good Players Club. She’s not only a good player, but she is good. Her true job is that of a gravure idol, but she tries her best to improve at mahjong and she can be seen regularly playing in mahjong broadcasts alongside Babi Hirokazu and Kajimoto Takunori (lucky bastards!).

 

#6 Oosaki Hatsune

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong Association (NPM). She is known by some to be air-headed or vulgar, even tomboyish, but there is more to this player. She made her way from working into cabarets in Japan to actually winning a title as a professional player and even today continues to tell off her foes, while getting more admiration by her fans.

 

#5 Ishii Aya

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong Association. Recently she was featured at Saikyousen ’11 as representative for female professionals (after winning that right in the preliminaries). Her slender, small, cute and shy image may give you the wrong impression at the table, where she will kick your butt if she has to. And most of us most likely wouldn’t mind.

   

#4 Shirakawa Yukina

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. Lately featured in Janryuumon broadcasts with Takunori Kajimoto. She’s not afraid to show her body, and her mahjong.

 

#3 Izumi Yukiko

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. Her nickname is “ice doll.” This cold cutie has even made DVDs for our entertainment, and not only mahjong DVDs.

#2 Nikaidou Rumi

From the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. The oldest sister of the mahjong professional “Nikaidou” sisters. Her rank at the league may not be as high as her younger sister’s, but her looks and beauty surely aren’t behind!

 

#1 Nikaidou Aki

Also from the Japanese Professional Mahjong League. She will probably stay at number one for a while. She is arguably the female player with the most notable results, at least at her league, and her popularity knows of no bounds. If someone knows about mahjong, even if barely, it’s highly likely they’ll know of her. A manga based about her called “Aki” is also published regularly.


I wouldn’t mind seeing any of them (I have only personally met #6 and #5) but remember, most of them like people who are skilled at mahjong. So don’t forget to practice! You never know.
