Hey peeps, hope everyone is feeling a little better! I just landed in Japan (Osaka) today and was wondering where the best place would be to go for Yuzu-related merch?

You’ll find it hard to believe, but the Russian Lokomotiv football club executive director posted a message to his footballers saying they should emulate Yuzuru Hanyu... 

 

 

Does anyone want to translate this? Or summarize it in more detail?

nice words, I was worried it would be a 'you should play no matter what, even if your body breaks', but it was about hard work to hone talent and achieve results:tumblr_inline_mqt4graWWO1qz4rgp:

 

always aming to give his best, fighting for what he chose and pursuing what he wants with unyielding spirit... this is why I think Yuzuru's Origin in Russia is a legacy. Not to push others to disregard their health (as some people have said somewhere else, entirely missing the point) but owning one's choices and not letting adversities defeat you

I am again reminded of Tennyson's Ulysses "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield":tumblr_inline_mg16go8gBg1qdlkyg:

The Russians already loved Yuzu, but I do think the fact that he put so much importance and emotion into doing this, in their country and to honour Plushy and his own love for Russian skating, probably won him even more fans and more admiration.

 

It may not have been prudent, but it came from the heart.

Google translator does a pretty good job in this case.

Check out the bookstores. The Bookoff stores often carry older magazines and books as well.

In order to make everyone here smile, PLZ READ THIS! :1: And dont let Yuzu know!

Is it wrong that probably all of us can see a full fledged human* being from mere stick figures? xD I can even see the face expression in my mind's eye...

(or maybe whoever did them is really good? maybe it's both?)

You can go to Yuzuruha Shrine in Kobe. It's really easy to go from Osaka. About 50 minutes by train. I went there several days ago to pray for Yuzu during my trip to Japan. It's like the holyland for Yuzu with so many Japanese fans going. You can see wishes for Yuzu everywhere. And the three-legged crow is also the symbol of that shrine.

You may find these bathclin kikiyu bath salts in drugstores.

 

ETA: Also, not directly related to Yuzu, but you can try zunda sweets at Zunda Saryo in Daimaru Umeda

I think the person who did them must be some kind of super genius who lives in a realm high above the rest of humanity. Definitely.

Are you saying Yuzu did this himself? I’m glad he’s taking up hobbies so quickly already :winky:
