    When I read IN I see that Fumie tweets a lot but it is in Japanese. Unfortuantley I do not speak the language so I don't know what is happening with her.

    It really is. Makes me sad as I used to love her skating.

    I don't normally say this, but I wish she'd just move on. She has a degree (Sociology, I think?) so it's not like she can't get a job. If she wants to stay involved in skating, she could get a coaching certificate, and skating shows are alive and well in Japan. I just feel like the universe is telling her it's over but she doesn't want to hear it.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Not pretty. No triple jumps landed and PCS mostly in 5s.

    NMURA, in your Japanese Teams 2012-2013 post, does "(N)" indicate a Novice level skater or something else? Thanks for posting the info, BTW.

    I don't think she is going to look for a new coach any time soon, cause i doubt she want's to leave japan!

    I agree.. she could definately do shows, or move into coaching if she wants to still be involved in skating. As it is, she would be better suited to adult comps if she wants to compete...

    No English page available, but it seems he has coached Regőczi-Sallay and Torville-Dean teams, as well as numerous ballet dancers, inc. Rudolf Nureyev!?

    I'm glad to see she's making changes. Her skating needs a "shot in the arm" so going to someone new is a good idea.

    Daisuke's Tango exhibition program at Dream on Ice show.

    This is no commentary version, so watch it in a larger screen to indulge in his performance.

    The atmosphere that he creates on the ice is amazing!!

    Do you know if she's going to stay involved in skating? Or will she pursue other career opportunities?

    The blog does not say much about who the husband is but it sounds like he is not from skating world.

    She also blogged that she got recognized as a member of Japan Figure Skating Instructor Association this year, so I guess she is staying involved in skating.

    Sorry Jeschke, since her name was in the list of the cast in the previous post, I thought it's pretty obvious without using the full name.

    Chika retires from the pro scene but Fumie is still pursuing amateur skating?

    In other news, whee for Ota!
