Maya T - Super Street Model - My Oh Maya

Hottest thing from Japan since illegal anime and wasabi!

May 20, 2014
Photographer: Randy Ly

It wouldn't be our Japan issue without a Japanese model, so we tracked down one of the sexiest around—Maya T! She's not your average JDM girl, though. Born and raised in Chiba (30-minute train ride from Tokyo), she moved to Canada five years ago where she improved her English and also kick-started her modeling career. Now she's stayin' busy serving at a Japanese restaurant while also modeling on the side. Welcome her as our newest Super Street girl!

So what's this I hear about you not eating Japanese food?a
I don't eat ramen, tempura, sashimi or anything Japanese. My favorite food is steak!

You are so not Japanese... sounds like you might be a gym freak.

I'm at the gym every day. I do a lot of weights and I love supersets. I've been working out for two and a half years and I even went to the gym at 6 a.m. before this shoot!

What's the most you can lift?

I can deadlift two 45-lb plates on each side.

Uhm... Isn't that 215 lb?! You're a beast! Do you also drink shakes?

Always making protein shakes. I use almond milk, protein powder and peanut butter. I also like protein bars.

So in the small chance you have a cheat day, what would you eat?

Cheesecake and pasta. I love Cheesecake Factory!

Any interesting hobbies... besides the gym?

I like traveling. Hawaii is my favorite place to visit. I love the beach resorts and weather. I also like taking pictures, shopping and eating out.

Only if it's steak right?

Yes!

Do you have a bad habit you're trying to get rid of?

I squint my eyes. My eye sight is really bad so I squint a lot. It also wrinkles my forehead.

What other jobs have you had?

I've interned as a concierge at a hotel in Canada. Before in Japan, I worked at the NRT airport for six years as a customer service information clerk.

What's your favorite thing about Canada?

Clean air! Tokyo is not clean. Canada is so clear. I also like to watch Hockey games. I like to go to the stadium and I kind of get it. Hehe.

What drink would you order at the bar?

White wine or like a sweet wine. Sangria, too!

How much do you know about cars?

Uhh... I know my dream car is what's its name... Benz! Not Benz... Porsche? Anyways it's a white car with the inside red and black.

Sounds like you have no idea what you're talking about...

I've never driven before! Maybe go-karting once? Haha. I would like to learn how to drive one day!

Anyone want to teach her? Anyways... What are your turn ons and offs?

Guys have to be muscular. Haha! Muscles and a good smile. Can't just have nice neck and arms. No chicken legs! Turn off... I hate smelly feet! [Real men have smelly feet!—MJ]

You're an interesting person, Maya. So what do you want to do in five years?

I want to be a personal trainer and work in the fitness industry. I'd also like to keep modeling and traveling.

Tell us three fun facts about you.

I did bungee jumping but don't want to do it again. I don't really cook—eat out all the time. And when many people hear me talk in English, they think I have an Australian accent. Haha!

Where would you want to live the rest of your life?

Somewhere warm and close to the beach. Maybe LA. I like palm trees and big cities.

We can be neighbors! Lastly, what's your favorite song?

Red Hot Chili Peppers! Every time I listen to "Dani California"... (smiles)

Sounds like you need to move to SoCal soon!
