I can tell you that the second sentence starts with 'Tohoku', aka the region where Sendai is. The rest is a mystery...

 

Google Translate says the first sentence is "A wonderful person came" and the second sentence seems to be referring to the number of photos related to Tohoku at the exhibit..."Tohoku 3 shots!" ? I guess they mean 3 pics of Yuzu...

 

The caption says "An awesome person came (to the photo exhibition)" then "Touhoku 3 shot" (means Yuzu, Ohtani and Nagakubo Harimoto all  from Touhoku region).

 

ETA: Harimoto who is in the background photo is the 3rd Touhoku sport person.

Btw, can anyone tell me if this photo was really chosen for tge exhibition or if it's a photoshop? What does the golden plaque say?

The gold plate says: Sports Category Award- Gold Medal 

And the caption says: Hanyu, thanking right foot.

its not a photoshop, but tbh I'd prefer them putting up a photo of the moment with a different angle.

someone took a picture with it and it just looks … weird … you know what I'm saying?

This bit of news is interesting ...

 

“Because Takahashi is not part of the national team program at this point, he won’t be eligible for selection to the team for the worlds. But that is just a side note, as the 2010 world champion made clear his goal for this season was to make the final group of six skaters at nationals.”

So antis can’t say Yuzu stole Dai’s spot even if he places in top 3.  ( though they’ll probably say it anyway)

It is a bit crazy to think Daisuke may become eligible for the world if he podiums at the nationals because he doesn't have the minimum TES that ISU set within the eligibility for the world championships. Daisuke hasn't competed a single international competition this year so it's not realistic. If he wins the nationals and wants to go WC, he'd have to go to 4CC to pick up the required TES then. But I really don't think Daisuke is thinking that and I don't think he can beat Shoma to win the national title. His fans desperately want to see their hero wins I know but figure skating has progressed so much in the last 4 - 5 years and Daisuke knows that too. It is hard for even the current skaters to keep up never mind 30something-once-retired-come-back-to-finish-the-unfinished-business. He will have tough time if he has to compete internationally. What Dai didn't have is saying good bye to his fans in front of them to finally complete his competition life. I hope he gets that at the nationals rather than trying to stretch it to the WC that happens to be in Saitama Japan next March...:13877886:

Dai can't go to 4CC either - there's a TES minimum for that too. He would have had to do a GP or Challenger to qualify. Just more proof that he truly isn't interested in skating internationally this season, I think.

 

Not that it's going to stop people from saying stupid stuff about Yuzu stealing his spot on the Worlds team, but I doubt there's any way to keep that from happening. Best to just ignore them, probably.

I find it hard to envision Dai making the final 6 at Japanese Nationals even, for exactly this reason. Japan has depth of talent on the men's side, too. It's maybe not going to be quite the bloodbath the women's side will be, but it won't be easy by any stretch of the imagination, even without Yuzu.

Oh, I think it's Yuzu, Ohtani, and Tomokazu Harimoto, the pingpong playing prodigy!

Sorry I think I'm wrong about Nagakubo san from Touhoku. I couldn't see the photo at the back ground so I assumed the person who took the photo was the 3rd Touhoku person! Thanks for correcting my mistake :)

He could go to a smaller competition to pick up the minimums, though. Like Bavarian Open in February or Coup de Printemps in March if he's not going to 4CC. Looking at ISU website there's something called the "Mentor Torun Cup" in early January he could go to for both. Maybe he doesnt want to bother until he gets actually assigned to World's?
