    Yuzuru Merch?

    So, I'll be in Tokyo/Kyoto in late March, and I wanted to know if there were any places that stock anything Yuzu? I've heard of the gum and the various magazines, but if there's anything more (or if you know of specific places that are sure to have the magazines), definitely let me know! ありがとございます! 
  2. I only started skating a year ago. A few months ago, I felt like giving up. I felt as though I wasn't making enough progress fast enough. So many people at my rink who had started skating after me were doing so much better. I couldn't hold my spins. I felt like my jumps were wobbly. Then, I decided to watch a documentary following Yuzu before Pyeongchang. I was so inspired. He works so hard to achieve his goals, and here I was, going twice a week and thinking that I'd have such rapid improvement. I started exercising more (admittedly, I gave up on that after a while. But I'm planning on finding a time every week to go to the gym), I bumped up my rink time from 1.5 hours twice a week to 3 hours + whenever I wanted to go, which ended up being almost every day. I saw so much improvement. Even in just one week, I was able to get my mohawk-entry salchow down, and though the technique isn't completely right, I landed my toe loop! My one-foot spin got better, and I even talked to my coach about entering a competition in March. I started watching my diet, too, and working on more off-ice exercises. It was all because of Yuzu. I'm so proud to be a fan of such a hard-working, amazing man. Get well soon bby!
