Tomoko Kanda might just be Japan’s most powerful woman, but what is even more impressive is her age. At 48 years old, Tomoko has a body that would put any 20-year-old to shame. The woman started practicing bodybuilding 25 years ago, while working at a military base, but says that working out is not enough if you want a perfect body. “If you want a toned body, with well-formed muscles, you have to eat right,” said the Japanese.

Tomoko spends between two and three hours a day at the gym, but says it is extremely important for her to maintain her femininity.
