Just wondering if anybody has heard anything about the event (or even if there is one)

I usually like their selection of skaters

Joannie is invited, too. But the tone of the icenetwork article is rather cautious.

I have a feeling that they are not sure yet if Japan Open will be held this year.

JAPAN
Ando
Suzuki
Kozuka
Takahashi

N.AMERICA
Czisny
Rochette
Chan
Buttle

EUROPE
Korpi
Meier
Plushenko
Gachinski

I'm very much confused. Asada must have declined. Don't know why.
Chan invited! Another surprise. He's not my favorite though.
Plushenko and Gachinski, nice. Plus Tuktamisheva would be better.
I wanted Hanyu instead of the old man.

NMURA, we posted at the same time! :lol:

Personally, I hoped that Michal Březina would be there,
since he tweeted that he so wanted to skate in Japan and show his Kodo program...
