I recall back the last time i visit tokyo for 3 weeks , one day to a mall when i mee this very tall japanese sales girl who was 6'2 with a few minute chat, she was almost the tallest women i met on the street everyday and i ask out of curiousness was she the tallest in her family she roughly told me she had 5 siblings all 6'0 and over include her both parents, tallest brother 6'6.75", shortest sister 6'0, dad 6'4 and her mom was the tallest women in whole family at 6'2.75" i was completely shocked that is so rare to have heard of a gigantic japanese family. Couldn't imagine if they're born in america or the dutch they would be several inches taller and the tallest brother of her would 7'0 and she will be like 6'5-6'6. Tao Okamoto height was still average tall there which i have met quite numbers of 5'9-5'10 women on the street every few days.

Japanese women are 5ft2 on average. And that means Tao is about 8 inches taller than the average. That means she really felt like a giant in Japan especially among women. Her height is already in the tall range for Western countries' women so what more in Asia where people are generally shorter than Westerners on average.

Rob what is her height equivalent to a Dutch woman? 6ft2?
Editor Rob
At least that range

wow, a tall Japanese girl, I am a man and I am 5 ft 9 7/8 in ( 177.5 cm). I give her at 5 ft 9 3/4 in (177.2 cm). She is shorter than me a little bit

Oh okay now I get it thanks Rob for the explanation. How about a Gadot/Okamoto staredown would she win?
Editor Rob
Still would give edge to Tao, though it may not really look much if you put them right beside each other.
Mimi said on 10/Apr/18
Thanks Rob but I thought you said 5ft9.5 is the lowesr you'd guess Charlize?
Editor Rob
She can look anywhere from 176 to 178, but 9.5 is the lowest I'd put her at...
Mimi said on 8/Apr/18
Rob, Tao Charlize staredown who'd you think will win?
Editor Rob
Possibly tao, but both can look anywhere from 5ft 9.25 to 10 range

Rob, how much taller do you think she will be in these ? Click Here

More than 6ft2 I guess?
Editor Rob: Mimi, I'd expect if Tao wore heels with a 2-inch platform and a fairly high angle, she'd get close to 5 inches total, so might be 6ft 2.5 range.

Her comments are true. I dated a 6'0" Japanese girl. In school they called her Godzilla Girl and she never had a boyfriend until she moved to the U.S. and we met. I am 6'5.5" evening, so her height was not a problem :))

I don't blame her if she might've felt insecure. A 6ft Japanese woman is the equivalent of a 6ft2 woman in US which isn't a desirable height at all.

Gwendoline Christie is nearly a whole foot above average for a woman in the UK. Tao is roughly 8 inches above the Japanese average for a woman. She's the equivalent of a 6' woman in the UK.
Fray said on 28/Dec/15
This is spot on. She is so beautiful!
Sam said on 17/Jun/15
Wow, what a beauty. She is probably the equivalent for a Japanese woman heightwise to what Gwendoline Christie is for a British woman.

Tall woman anywhere in the world and very tall in Japan. I'm 182 and been to Japan many times and never felt especially tall among japanese men but felt very tall among japanese women. The older they are the smaller they get. Cleanest country in the world and everything works. Great people that know what the word "respect" means.

Tao Okamoto's height is 5ft 9.75in (177 cm)

She is right, 177/178 cm is very tall in Japan for a woman.
Ajay said on 7/Aug/13
I am 5'1". She wore 3 inch heels when I met her. She was a clear foot taller so she would be 5'10" in heels. In wolverine she looked taller than hiroyuki sanada by a large margin
