(My post above went over the limit of word count, so I am reposting here. Apologies for overlapping contents)

Prince Ice World (PIW)
https://www.princeiceworld.com/
4/29-4/30, 5/3-5/5 – Yokohama, Kanagawa

Shoma Uno, Yuma Kagiyama, Kao Miura, Wakaba Higuchi (and perhaps more?) are skating new programs.

Yuma's program is Werther choreographed by Lori Nicole and Carolina Kostner.
He made it while he was staying in Italy for 3 weeks. Yuma might use this program as SP during 2025-2026 season when the Olympic Games will be held in Italy.

Kao's new program is Natural choreographed by Kenji Miyamoto
It is supposed to be an exhibition program, but it's structured in a way it can also be used as SP.
Benoit Richaud will choreograph his new SP and Natural will be a back-up.

Shoma's new program is Come Together.
He is making multiple programs for exhibitions first and then will decide which one he wants to skate as SP for the new season. Padam, Padam, choreographed by Mihoko Higuchi, is one of the candidates for his new SP.

This is Shizuka skating at Prince Ice World from a few months back…
This video is from last year's PIW show.

This year Shizuka Arakawa is skating to "Memory" from Cats: https://www.instagram.com/p/CrxonDxunsa/
She tweeted some photos on May 5:

Shizuka will perform again in Daisuke Takahashi's second "Ice Explosion" show (was added to the cast on April 21) - link to the thread for both shows:

That’s great…reminds me of her EX from years ago. It’s a favorite song of mine too.

PIW offers meet & greet after the show where fans can ask skaters to pause for their cameras and also ask them questions. Kao told a fan that his new FS will be choreographed by Shae-Lynn Bourne.

Yuma Kagiyama made a surprise appearance and skated his new program Werther, including reverse spin. Friends who saw this program all told me that his skate has become even more polished and shows added elegance. This show will be televised, so hopefully we can get to see the new side of Yuma!

Just saw this in a sport-express.ru article:
"The Fantasy on Ice show in the Japanese city of Makuhari was interrupted for several minutes due to an earthquake with an amplitude of 6.2 on the Richter scale. One of the organizers, Ari Zakarian, told SE about this:
“We got a “click” here today. When Javier Fernandez came on the ice, at the beginning of the program, everyone in the hall rang their phones. This is how an earthquake is signaled in Japan. The performance was interrupted, the lights were turned on. Everyone calmly waited a few minutes, and the show resumed."
Johnny Weir also mentioned the earthquake in his Instagram story.

ETA that Lilah didn't mention the earthquake in her vlog (includes a clip from their Lady Gaga RD performance): https://www.instagram.com/reel/CstQS1Ws8Iy/

There is yet ANOTHER show that is planned! :eek:

One Piece On Ice
https://www.onepiece-on-ice.com/
August, Yokohama
September, Nagoya
Cast: TBA

One Piece is a very popular manga in Japan and fans are wondering who will act the leading role, which will be announced on 4/2, by making a guess about this picture (whose hand is this?) 😂
Shoma Uno, Nobunari Oda and Miyu Honda had a talk show as casts.

Prince Ice World (PIW)
https://www.princeiceworld.com/

6/10-6/11 - Saga
Shizuka Arakawa, Takeshi Honda, Prince Ice World Team, Miki Ando, Nobunari Oda, Keiji Tanaka, Uno Shoma, Marin Honda, Miyu Honda, Javier Fernandez
The arena in Saga was packed with the audience for all the shows.

Miki skated to Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, her 2006 SP that she skated for the Olympic Games.

Kana and Daisuke skated The Mask, their first RD as a team but with much more confidence this time.

Yuka Orihara, who performed with her dance partner Juho Pirinen for Ice Explosion, posted a long clip about the making and backstage of Ice Explosion on her YouTube channel. It is very fun to watch!

Cross-posting here:

Today (6/25/23) will be the last day that Johnny will skate professionally - the last day on Fantasy on Ice shows.
Skaters from the show held a wish-well party for Johnny and Nobunari, Yuzuru and Johnny were al in tears. :cry:
