It looks like Kanazawa and Sapporo shows are promoted by different party(s). Their information is listed under a separate branch:

https://figureskate-soi.com/hkis/

April 2-3, Sapporo
April 5-7, Kanazawa.

The cast is mostly the same, but Nathan Chen does not participate here.

Thanks for finding the link to the rest of the Japan tour! I've edited my original thread title to include the other 2 cities/dates.

Shoma Uno - Kanazawa only

(ADDED) Yuna Shiraiwa - Sapporo only

Here's the short video promo for the Osaka shows this weekend (only Rika speaks at the end):

What i love about the Japanese (beside many many things) is that they respect and follow rank and order.
The top medalists are in the first row, shown first on TV and in media, addressed and listed first.

I found this link, about possibility to watch on Japanese TV. (google translates)

This looks like a fantastic show!

I wish that SOI in the U.S. would include international skaters. I enjoyed it last year but skipping this year with the limited appearances of Nathan Chen and Jason Brown. Evgenia Medvedeva is participating in the Canada SOI. I’d love to see her skate.

Papadakis Cizeron are as well, though only as special guests for a couple of shows near Montreal.

I didn't watch Tuktamysheva's exhibition skate so I didn't realize she performed to her FS music in Osaka ("You Don't Love Me" by Caro Emerald / "Petite Fleur" by The Hot Sardines / "Cat Groove" by Parov Stelar). It was just an show... no need to panic. ;)

I know... but now Kolyada is replaced by Lazukin... Kolyada when on, would be at least 3rd behind Uno and Chen..

ShibSibs' latest vlog Penguins and New Tricks - Stars on Ice Japan Ep. 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGJ7dmCjb1E
This is our first vlog from STARS ON ICE Japan! We left Tokyo with the cast and took the train to Osaka to begin rehearsals for the show. Jeff [Buttle] started teaching the cast the choreography and we celebrated Satoko’s 21st birthday! We’ve been to Osaka many times for competitions and shows but it had been a few years since we had been back so it was nice to be in a familiar place with so many special memories.

Rehearsal BTS - Stars on Ice Japan Ep. 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pcw24Uk6lFU
We [ShibSibs] included some more behind-the-scenes footage from rehearsals in this vlog. It takes a lot of work and practice to prepare a cast for a show and rehearsals continued for 2 full days before we had our first performance in Osaka.

Stay tuned for Episode 3 - footage from all 3 of our Osaka shows… and KARAOKE!

SAPPORO! - Stars on Ice Ep. 4 [ShibSibs vlog]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdIyzKLr240
After 3 shows in Osaka, we flew to Sapporo for 3 more shows. It was snowing…in April! While it was cold, we had so much fun performing for the fans and had a chance to celebrate Stéphane’s birthday and have a nice cast dinner.

After our sushi dinner, we went bowling… but that’ll be in the next video. Stay tuned for Episode 5!

Seeing Liza and Evgenia be so friendly in the Shibs vlog was very nice to see. I know there was nothing to indicate they wouldn’t be friends but after the whole Worlds team selection thing it was good to see them hanging out and enjoying each other’s company. Also, seeing the friendship between the skaters is also awesome to see.

BOWLING! - Stars on Ice Ep. 5 (ShibShow) finally was uploaded on June 7: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR9Xy63g8zI
This is the long awaited bowling video from Stars on Ice Japan! We went bowling after one of our shows in Sapporo with the cast and celebrated Stéphane’s birthday. Let’s just say there wasn’t a whole lot of bowling talent on display - so we’re all probably better off sticking to the ice. 😂
