Chukyo University now has "Miki and Mao" sub-rink
Several hours ago Chukyo University had the opening ceremony of their new sub-rink "Rainbow" (20m by 40m) attached to the existing main rink "Aurora" (30m by 60m) .
As you know the latter has been evaluated as superb by visitor skaters like Rippon and Wier.
The new sub-rink has no fence between the ice and the rinkside so that the skater and the coach can communicate better, has two mirror walls of 2.4m in height by 12 and 19 meters in width respectively.
According to the past news, "Rainbow" is the official name and the nickname is "Miki and Mao rink", and was designed with their opinions taken in.
Miki, Mao, Tak and others participated in the ceremony.
... total 13 photos.
Those related to the university, probably VIPs(?), attended and had the privilege of enjoying them skate their numbers.
