Meet Asia's hottest pair: Japanese twins Aya and Ami

11 November 2013 / 2 years 11 months ago

If you look up Japanese fashion and music duo Amiaya on the Internet, they're usually hailed as 'Asia's hottest pair'.

With their youthful good looks and cutesy appearance, it's easy to see why.

In an interview with The New Paper, when asked what they think of the label, 25-year-old identical twins Ami and Aya simply giggled politely.

"We're happy and honoured to be called that (but we don't think about it). We just want to spread our Tokyo pop brand of music," said Aya through a translator.

Amiaya are in town to perform at a fashion showcase, Marble Wonderland by Asia Kawaii Way, last Saturday, as part of this year's Anime Festival Asia.

According to Ami, "99.9 per cent" of their fans are female.

"They are usually inspired by how we look and come to our shows looking exactly like us," she said.

When it comes to the boys though, Ami readily admits that her sister is more popular with the opposite sex.

"She knows how to act around boys while I am quieter. She will approach them if she likes them and usually, she is 100 per cent successful," she said, laughing.
