I love mustard and pickles but only unsweetened. I really hate sweetened pickles, while I love French cornichons (gherkins), Italian capers, garlic, Derby eggs, and the likes, just vegetables, vinegar, salt and herbs. And Dijon mustard.

Though during a visit in Norwich (England) a few years ago, I had at the market a slow-cooked brisket sandwich with, of course, Norwich (not too) sweet mustard, and I still have sweet memories of this sandwich. But it was not exactly a burger, the "bun" was more traditional and the meat too (one of those delicacies English cuisine "haters" don't even know). More like pan-bagnat.

You'd probably enjoy Montreal smoked meat sandwiches. It's usually just smoked meat and sharp mustard on rye, with a sour pickle spear. one of my favorite lunches. 

 

So where do you reckon Yuzu sits on mustard? My guess is  he likes honey mustard, but only in small amounts.

Did he ever speak of mustard? But you spoke of honey?

:POOH:

I refer to this kind of thing:

And no, Yuzu has never mentioned mustard, nor even wasabi, that I know of. I am simply making conversation at this point.

I didn't realize that was his dad's school. he must have been so nervous!

Not that they mentioned his father directly in this program though. His father has never appeared in any TV program.

 

It is true that his family is close-mouthed and seems to be trying to keep a low profile. Yuzu also seems to be carefully avoiding mentioning his family more than necessary in these days. But it's not that people in Sendai have no idea where he lives. His neighbors wouldn't tell even if they know.  Even when he visits a shop or a hotel in/around Sendai and leaves proof such as an autograph, they wouldn't share it until later. It's Sendai rule.

I found the energy chart, 12% sugar, it must just be awful... to my palate at least. Be it honey or anything else.

I read his sister had to leave her part-time job at Ice Rink Sendai because she was bothered by people.

But I don't think a visit to the rink, to see where he learned skating, where he was when the earthquake hit Sendai... should be wrong. A rink is a public place. The same with passing in front of his former junior high school, wandering in the park he used to walk in... It could become a problem, should crowds do the same, but as long as it is just the occasional fanyu...

And like @rockstaryuzu I am really glad his neighbours, and the shops and restaurants he visits, respect his privacy. So that he can still feel at home in his town.

It's a very good rule and I admire them for it. It really shows how much his hometown cares for him. 


So true, it’s amazing how pretty much everyone in Sendai puts in effort for him and his family to keep their privacy. It would be a living nightmare for him if people started stalking him 😭 

He is Sendai’s treasure after all!

IIRC they published a guide of his favourite places, so visiting them is actually encouraged by the city :dancingpooh:

It actually doesn't taste that sweet, especially when served on grilled smoked sausage. The honey just takes the edge off the sharpness of the mustard and makes for a warm taste instead of a hot one.

Oh yes. He did, in 2014. Students there wrote messages of support for Yuzu before Sochi, and Yuzu paid a surprise visit to say thanks.

 

 

I never paid attention because I didn't know this was his dad's school, but the man in the black suit who leads Yuzu into the gym actually looks rather like Mr. Hanyu. :D From the pictures and footage of him that exist, his height, build, and profile are similar. The camera carefully tries to avoid a clear view of this man's face, too. Maybe proud dad wanted to be the one to go 'ta-daaaa!' :D

I could be wrong about this (and I suppose if I could read Japanese, there would be more clarity) but I thought this was a visit to a school that had been badly damaged during the earthquake and, in addition to the messages for Sochi they sent him, the re-building of the school was why he visited.  Something to cheer the students who had been through so much, But I might be wrong...

Thank you @sweetwater :tumblr_inline_n18qr7hmfk1qid2nw:

Yes, this is the video in my blur memory.

 

Just one correction in my previous post.  I checked again and noticed there was no comment whether the school his father is working is in Sendai, or other cities at present.  It surely is in Miyagi Prefecture as usually the teachers in public schools are hired by prefecture.

Sorry for unsure information.

 

EDIT:  The school in the video is in Ishinomaki City in Miyagi Prefecture.

(His father) is a strict educator who serves as the principal of Junior High School in Sendai. He acknowledged Hanyu's talent and hard work, but never spoiled him.”   There was a word that such a father had told Hanyu many times.   "No matter how hard it takes to practice the figure (skating), keep on studying (other things). In the future, I want you to become a first-class member of society before being a first-class player."
