Tokyo native Nanami Nagura was crowned the new world air guitar champion Saturday at a tourney in Finland, the Air Guitar Japan Association said.

Nagura, 19, who used to belong to an all-girl air guitar idol group, is the first Japanese to win the title since Yosuke Ochi, one half of the comic storytelling pair Dainoji, claimed back-to-back victories in 2006 and 2007.

The 2014 Air Guitar World Championships were held in Oulu, western Finland.
