It should be apparent by now that we here at FHM are very fond of the Japanese culture, from their unparalleled discipline in time to the culture they accordingly preserve, to their odd curiosities, to their women, of course.

We can’t even begin to fathom how adorably cute they look in colorful kimono or a schoolgirl uniform. Have them speak and out comes cute, this time in the form of sound.

And then there’s Yuri Okawa – Pinoy Big Brother Season 3 housemate hailing from the land of the rising sun. She relinquishes all conventional claims we have of Japanese girls, and that might actually be a good thing.

She's everything we love about Japanese women, and more. Yuri, for one, is much feistier than your average Japanese cutie. Unconvinced? Check out her FHM debut. She poses her breathtaking female form with such conviction, but manages to look cute and reserved during the interview.

Cute and feisty – she’s given us the best of both worlds. And now we love Japan even more.

You told us earlier that this is your first ever sexy photoshoot. How was it?
Oo, as in! Well, nakakahiya pero gusto ko talaga siya eh. Minsan lang tayo maging bata. Wala na tayo sa age na tweetums pa. Gusto ko naman magkaroon ng mature na image. Level up ng image.

What made you decide to finally go sexy?
Mahiyain talaga ako kahit hindi halata. Never talaga ako sumali sa mga bikini contests. Siguro na-realize ko na mag-try naman ng iba. Kasi pumayat din ako ng sobra. So bakit hindi, di ba?

Are you happy with how the shoot turned out?
Oo kasi parang hindi ako. Hindi ako makapaniwala kasi mula sa set hanggang sa make-up, ang galing.

You came from Japan straight to the PBB house. Looking back, how was your experience as a housemate?
Sa akin, it was hard and exciting. Marami akong natutunan, mga pananaw sa buhay, pakikisama sa iba’t ibang tao. Mahirap gawin yun pero natuto ako.

And when you came out, you became an instant celebrity.
Kapag lumalabas kami may nagpapa-picture na. Nakikilala ka na.

What’s the greatest thing you’ve ever gotten out of that experience?
Maraming advantage, it’s a good feeling. Siyempre tao ka, kapag nakikilala ka ibig sabihin interesting ka. Nakakataba ng puso.
