2014-04-11: My First Book Signing

Yesterday I took part in the book signing launch event
for “Hitotsu hitotsu. Sukoshizutsu.”

Thank you to everyone who came!

I’m delighted all sorts of people are reading it.
Also thank you to the Kinokuniya Bookstore event staff!

Before the book signing, I had a photoshoot
and an interview…

Lunch was a veggie sandwich filled with lots of veggies.

Stars on Ice starts today at Yoyogi so let’s go.
I look forward to seeing everyone there!

2013-04-09: Opera

I’m at the Phantom of the Opera show in Sapporo right now.
The actress who plays Christine, Kasamatsu Haru-san, and
the actor who plays Monsieur Andre, Kitazawa Yusuke-san,
who also happens to be the chairman of the opera company
came to see Superstars on Ice yesterday.

These are the flowers I received from their opera company!

Thank you so much!!

Do you know which part of which skater’s choreography this is?

I love it when us skaters imitate each other.

(We’re all out-of-sync though. Lol.)

2014-04-05: Sendai

I went to Sendai on 4/1!

It’s been a while since I visited my alma mater, Tohoko Fukushi University.

On location with the hilarious comedy duo and announcer Sugo!

This view from the university brings back memories.

Then I went to Tohoko Rakuten’s (T/N: a pro baseball team) season opener at home.
The first kobo stadium Miyagi!

I met pitcher Saito, a senpai from Fukushi U!

And finally dinner!!!

Food is very important.

The last time I was back was for NHK Trophy
but I’m happy I had the chance to return to Sendai
despite a packed schedule!
