About time the JGP returned to Japan.

I'm surprised at no Russian JGP, after what a huge success Chelyabinsk was.

Also glad that we're keeping up on having a North American JGP each season, third year running.

Agreed on all points - I'm surprised Russia didn't bid for one; and kind of sad for the skaters, as JGP Chelyabinsk was such a packed audience for the skaters. I totally expect that Canada & Japan JGPs will have nice audiences, though.

Budapest and Uzbekistan? I love it! There so many diverse locations next year. I’d gotten used to the pluarity being in Europe with only one exception, using the same rinks over and over. I hope Ted can interview Misha in Uzbekistan as well.

Yes, it's a (nice) surprise to see 3 non-European JGPs in one year. And great to have it back in Richmond. Incredible travel routing for Ted and co., though!

The last time there was one in Japan it sold out, IIRC. Richmond last year had a good audience, although not full - and that with short notice/prep time.

I'm selfish in preferring the European venues because they are most convenient for watching from the US eastern time zone, but good for fans elsewhere to have some diversity
