Title: Prefecture*1 Skin Ranking Personality: Murakami Ryuji
Now, when it comes to where Nagasaki is in the ranking*2, it’s just about in the middle, in 23rd place. By the way, it’s the highest in Kyushu*3. Ah, I’m sorry! Miyasaki was above this, it was 22nd place. Sorry. Um, 22nd place was Miyasaki Prefecture, and 23rd place was Nagasaki Prefecture. And now the results were; Kumamoto Prefecture 28th place; Fukuoka Prefecture 32nd place; Kagoshima Prefecture 33rd place; Saga Prefecture 36th place; And Oita Prefecture 42nd place. For Oita*4, a prefecture with hot springs, 42nd place was a little surprising. For three categories - the horny layer of cells*5 is in place, the skin is moist, and the skin texture is in place - Shimane Prefecture won within the top three places. The beautiful skin deviation value*6 was 71.5, and that was the highest.
