How is that? Why?

Not sure, but it may have something to do with the fact that the miss Japan winner was being sent to Miss international! and that is basically never going to change! given that MIO owns miss Japan. Even though they were crowning a separate winner for MW! I don't think MWO was ok with it.
MWO did not renew the franchise... they decided to award the franchise to a different organization. This years Ms World Japan who competed in the MW 2013 came from a new franchise owner already.
I have to agree that it might have been because the MIO sends the 1st runner-up of Ms Japan to the MW and their winner to MI.... And that is only logical because the MIO owns Ms Japan. Although they crown both Ms World Japan and Ms International Japan as two winners in the local pageant. It is a known fact that the MWO wants a girl who was crowned as the main winner in the local pageant.... in fact, there were even rumors that the MWO demands that the only title awarded in the local pageant is the MW--- this is also the reason why in the Ms India contest, they did not announce ME India and MI India- they only announced MW India
