This is a 3 part video series we will release as it gets translated and subbed. The interview was conducted right after Japanese Nationals in December 2019 but the program was aired in February 2020.

*A note on names: The title of the show is ็พฝ็”Ÿใจใ‚†ใฅใ‚‹ (‘Hanyu and Yuzuru’) and you will see the narrator say that we are getting to know ใฏใซใ‚…ใ†ใ‚†ใฅใ‚‹ for the first time. This nuance is hard to convey because it doesnโ€™t exist in English but the name is written not in formal kanji (็พฝ็”Ÿ็ตๅผฆ) which is how Yuzuru is known but in hiragana, the โ€˜easiestโ€™ form of the Japanese alphabet, how children and Yuzu would have first learned to write their name before learning kanji. The feeling is that we are seeing a more personal, โ€˜private-facingโ€™ and vulnerable side to him. For the sake of translation, the hiragana version will be written โ€˜Hanyu Yuzuruโ€™ (the Japanese name order) to distinguish the two.

Q: You didnโ€™t jump very intensely?

A: Well, it was the first day of practice so well, I [did so] while properly confirming my senses/feeling [for the rink/competition]. Well, I donโ€™t think the skating itself has exactly come but I am confirming these one at a time. I skated todayโ€™s practice while thinking anew about the best way to get a feel for the ice.

Q: Was it a good feeling to skate to Ballade No. 1? 

A: Well, I can only say I will leave that to the impressions of people watching in the audience, but well, I was really nervous today. But I felt again…well, apart from Pyeongchang, it was my first time running through Ballade No. 1 in front of everyone so while being very nervous, I felt like I was once more preparing myself to skate to this program.

Q: What was your reason for changing the programs?

A: Um, I think just with this question, the interview will probably be over. Firstly, at the Grand Prix Final and Japanese Nationals, I think itโ€™s very fun to raise the difficulty [of my layouts], and the happiness at the moment of accomplishing them is immeasurable, but, wellโ€ฆ I think the skating Iโ€™m aspiring to is not just doing difficult things.

I did Origin, did Otonal, but perhaps itโ€™s not something that fits my rhythm/pace. Firstly, when it comes to technical things, the more I put in difficult elements, the more I neglect the portions of my own skating, and something I hate is separating my mind from the music because I must do so to set up for jumps. A big [factor/reason for the change] was not being able to tolerate that. And also, in terms of music, I selected those pieces Origin and Otonal after the Olympics had finished, when I myself was in a very ambivalent/floating mood, feeling like I was constantly that young boy who was always chasing after Johnny Weir and Plushenko.

Therefore, I think itโ€™s indeed true that the Otonal at Japanese Nationals was good and Skate Canadaโ€™s Origin was good but, after all, I was thinking that I could not perfect them as my own performance. Because the ideal was that hard to reach. That โ€˜idealโ€™ was probably not me, but I think that of Plushenko-san and Johnny-sanโ€™s shadows*. Therefore, when I thought of it, this was not my skating and thought this once more when performing Seimei during Medallist on Ice. When I skated Seimei…well, itโ€™s not really about a cover and original song but I really felt a difference similar to that within myself. Truthfully, Seimei and Ballade No. 1 are kids who, as legend-like records** to be passed down, so if I had been able to, I wanted to let them sleep. But, even so, during Medallist on Ice, when I borrowed their power – and maybe it was because of my mentality at the time – I thought I was able to be myself to a staggering degree. So, yes, for a little while longer, I thought it was okay to borrow the power of these kids, yes.

*literally he says their โ€˜backsโ€™ were the ideal, essentially the โ€˜backsโ€™ who he was chasing after or their idealised image in his head, but Iโ€™ve taken the liberty to use a more common English expression. 

**he uses ใ—ใพใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ which is a suffix usually used to denote something thatโ€™s not ideal/good – here it’s attached to ่จ˜้Œฒใ‚’ๆŒใฃใฆใ—ใพใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ – holding the records. Our interpretation is that he’s saying it’s almost a bad thing that they have those records because it gives these programs a particular weight because of their ‘legendary’ reputation that he doesn’t want to risk/harm by performing them again.

Q: Whatโ€™s the degree of completion for your 4A, will you fight with it at the World Championships?

A: U~mโ€ฆ well, if I canโ€™t jump it then I cannot put it in, though I’ll do it if I can. I think I was indeed able to practice it during this month-long period. I havenโ€™t landed it, but somehow or another, I think its condition/shape has gotten better.

A beautiful and powerful melody sounded somewhere around Tokyo. Chopin Ballade No. 1. The performer is Ms. Kanon Matsuda. Moving to Moscow at the age of 6, she is the most noted young pianist who has studied at the Moscow Conservatory since 2014 as the first Japanese to receive the Russian government special scholarship.

Off to the side, behind Ms. Matsuda, a young man leans, with closed eyes, sometimes following the rhythm of the music with his body. The man is Yuzuru Hanyu, a figure skater who performs to this song for his short program in the 2017-2018 season.

Hanyu wiped the sweat off his neck with a handkerchief, took a sip of his drink and took a breath. Then he returned to Ms. Matsuda. Art and sports: the two young talents began to discuss “expression”.

H: Instead of "putting", it's more like "entering". Everyone who's listening and watching, and even me whoโ€™s skating, all have different pasts, different experiences. For example, a sad song -if you experienced something sad recently, will make you feel extremely sad,but if you've just had fun and are feeling excited, the way you feel it will be different. You may be able to see something like hope comes after sorrow. I really want to pay attention to those kind of things. There are many things I want to convey, but I want to convey a different "something" to every person watching.

H: For my free skate, I've chosen the songs myself for the past 5-6 years.The standard I follow is how much interest I have in the program. I'll be skating that program everyday for a year or two, so there will definitely be times that I'll get tired of listening to the song. It is a huge deal whether I can be passionate about the song or not.

In Peru, South America, there are young people who have the dream of participating in Olympic figure skating someday. The skating class started with five skaters and exceeded 150 in just five years.

They use rinks that are only half the size of international standards, but a bright and cheerful challenge proceeds under a leader who has the unique background of having competed in the roller skating world championship.

Argentinian Sergio Lois (37) was invited to lead classes in 2012.  Skating classes began with teaching basic technique.

The turning point was the South American Championship, hosted by clubs from 5 different nations , which was held for the first time in 2015.

This was cooperation among countries that are not familiar with figure skating, and creating opportunities for international competitions for skaters. 

In Peru, the skaters gained confidence with gold medals at each level.  Approximately 40 people will participate in the event in Ecuador this November.

Himena Olmaturia (17), who won the first competition, is very passionate about skating:  โ€œPeru is a nation known for being good at football or volleyball. I wanted to try a different sport.  I feel like I am flying when I skate in the rink.โ€

However, it is difficult to say that the facility is suitable to prepare for the Olympics.  It is 32 meters in length and 14 meters in width – about half of the international standard (60 meters by 30 meters), which is considered desirable for the Olympics and other competitions.  Covered with a vinyl curtain, it is not a completely indoor facility. Water drips from the ceiling, hitting the ice.

Even though the government provides uniforms, it doesnโ€™t allow the establishment of a federation because the facility is a private entity.  For this reason, Peru is not a member of the International Skating Union (ISU).

Their technical skills are also similar to the level of beginners in Japan. Olmaturia, one of the top skaters, has learned to 4 single jumps out of the 6 types of jumps. More than half of the skaters have less than a year of competitive experience.

Still, they are full of passion.  In the choreographic practice, while music flows, the atmosphere becomes lively like at a real competition and the skatersโ€™ motivations rise up. An expensive apparatus for practicing jumps was handmade by a supporter.

Mr. Lois, who teaches the skaters, talked about his dream.  โ€œPractice environment, great talent, discipline โ€“ Japan has everything necessary for competition.  Even if it takes 10 or 20 years, I would like my skaters to win the Olympics and world championships like Japanese skaters.โ€

First of all , I applied to participate in the Four Continents because I want to tackle that competition with all my might. Of course I have a strong desire to get the title and am aiming for it, but somehow I feel that as a step, participating in Four Continents might help me grow, so I submitted the request. And it’s the same for this competition as well, I experience various things through the competitions and I think I can once again absorb many experiences and become stronger from them. Also I think it would be good if I could do simulations and other competitions, and truly think about and do various things, not only just Four Continents and the World Championships. Four Continents is one of my walls. I might compete with Nathan there, but for now, there is a wall called โ€œShomaโ€, whom I lost to, so I want to prepare myself and fight fully in my best condition.

By going to the Four Continents, I would like to make it a step towards learning it. Well I donโ€™t have to say what โ€œitโ€ (4A) is, you understand. I really need an absolutely strong weapon now. Of course, there’s only about one point difference with the 4Lz, so is it worth it, or is it worth doing, or is it better to do the 4Lz twice? I’ve actually considered that. But this pertains to my personal pride, after all. It is a core (desire) which supports my skating now, so I definitely want to do it. With that in mind, I thought about my approach to the Four Continents, thinking of Four Continents as a place to see how much I have been able to progress, and submitted my request to participate this time.

First of all, about the SP, the first half of the program is not set in stone, I’d like to think about how to adjust the music and how to jump in the best way to achieve the best rate of success and beauty and figure out how to jump so that it is blended in with the program. I don’t intend to do this layout for the FS at all, so I have to think about what I should prioritise from now on. If I prioritise jumping the 4Lz, I think it will certainly be more stable if I jump it as the first jump. So should I do that? Or if I really want to jump the 4A and get to the level that I can put that in the program, what should I do after the 4A? If I do the Lutz after the Axel, it would definitely be a big burden, so I have to think about those things one by one. However, I think the meaning of putting 4A in is to increase the types of quad jumps, so if I can’t make good use of it, I don’t think it’s worth doing it, and I also feel that I have to build a strong foundation in order to achieve that.
