  1. Guess I felt a bit stressed out about this too. Some years ago, her unique voice was much stronger and easily reached the higher notes. Could they have lowered the key, or would that spoil the atmosphere of the piece? However, most of the piece was piano, so that helped a bit. Sorry for noticing this too---probably because I had lived in Japan for a long time so heard her through different points in her career, but never heard her in a live performance. The whole performance, everyone and the audience, were very emotional though.
  2. Agree that learning to switch Japan Amazon to English or having somewhat a grasp of Japanese is definitely dangerous for the wallet! It's very easy to order from them, unfortunately
  3. Must buy airplane tickets immediately At least I have a hotel room already! And it will only take us about 11 hours to get there (UK to Chicago to Toronto), not bad for me who usually is used to taking longer flights!
  4. I usually bring canvas banners. If you roll them up, you can put them between your clothes along the sides of your suitcase and they don't get wrinkled. Just reverse roll them when you get there to straighten them out. Of course if you have glitter on them like mine do, some of your clothes might get gold-glittered too
  5. Count me in on the low alcohol dehydrogenase contingent. I have a very low alcohol tolerance and if I drink more than a few sips of even beer, this causes my asthma to act up and I start wheezing, not to mention turning very red. Wonder if Yuzu's asthma gets worse if he drinks? Also, can't use alcohol on my skin.
  6. It seems like there will be a one-to-one interview with Yuzu by Nakayama Mika (an announcer?) on Mon, June 24, at 8-10:25 Jpn time, or maybe recorded before and will show tomorrow. Hope someone who can understand Japanese better than me will give a full translation of the above. Is this going to be live somewhere? Another middle of the night event for me to watch
  7. Harder than getting tickets to WC. Well, I need to be unrealistically optimistic---at least I can watch it on TV from far away.
  8. I'll be in Japan around that time too, but have never attempted to get tickets to Japan Nationals. Is there a lottery like for the other events in Japan and if so, when is it held? Think with it being in Tokyo, it will be very hard to get tickets this year. I'll asked by son to give it a try, although I'm not optimistic!
  9. I also probably won't book flights until I find out if Yuzu is going, although I've reserved a cancelable hotel. Hope we'll know before September though.
  10. When I was going through the checkout process, it said that you have a certain amount of time to finish the transaction or the tickets will go back to the sale. So I had plenty of time to put in my credit card info, even though I accidentally selected the wrong country from the pull-down menu because I was stressed. I didn't use PayPal directly (i.e., did not have an account), but I think PayPal manages the purchase even if you use a credit card. Think the hurdle is getting into your cart fast enough and pressing the make payment button. Good luck everyone!
  11. Got my tickets, for once I'm lucky! Clicked on the dot of 10 AM using the details button and put in the code. After putting in the code, the ticket selection menu came up immediately and I selected right away and checked out. Thanks for the moral support and instructions on this thread!
  12. They sure are---since the type of fabric really determines how comfortable they are. I've been wearing toe socks for years and they do help to prevent blisters, etc.! They are very popular in Japan, but now that I'm living in Europe, it takes more effort to find them and must try hard to find ones that look like an adult would wear them!
  13. I watched COC live on TV (from Japanese TV that showed much more about the accident) and would not watch it again until I knew he had recovered. Could not bring myself to watch Boston again, since I was there and that was traumatic enough. I can watch Rostelecom okay. And I definitely watch Saitama Origin again and again, but only his performance. Why are there pics of everyone except for Yuzu
  14. Next Friday, another ticket crisis---maybe I should take the day off (good idea)
