    It used to be a cheesefest but I think it might be different this year.
    Since it is held in very biginning of the season and the skaters will debut new FS programs, it becomes much more interesting events to watch and also the skaters would be more serious. Especially It's Olympic season this yea. I can't wait seeing their new FS!

    Sorry, I don't understand "closed" mean well, but this is an invitational event which the organizer decide who to complete in. The events are held in a huge arina in Saitama prefecture in Japan and open to the audience. Unfortunately the ticket sale is sluggish so far.

    And I heard Sarah Meier withdraw from the event due to her injury just a few minutes ago. Hope she'll be OK and wonder who can come for her long way from Europe to Japan in this time of the year.

    I was making a joke. In English, "open" and "closed" are adjectives with opposite meanings, such as "The door is open" and "The door is closed".

    A business can also be "open" (ready to conduct business) or "closed" (gone home for the day).

    When you said "Japan Open", the first thing I thought of was, "Japan Closed".

    Now I understand!
    I hope someday I can make a joke in English. Anyway, thank you for explaining.

    No, it was just a bad joke, because I didn't even understand it, and the explanation didn't help my appreciation of it.

    On the site I see 12:00 and 13:00. Is it the starting time of the competition? If so, I think Tv-tokyo (which is streamed on KeyHoleTV) will not show it live.

    Hi everyone,
    TV Tokyo will not broadcast Japan Open live- competition starts at 1PM and the TV program starts at 7PM.
    The gala show starts at 6PM, and will be on TV from 4PM on the 4th.

    I was lucky enough to get a good ticket for the competition I won't be able to be online until I get home in the evening but I'll drop some info about the performances.
    I'm sure Mao's "Prelude in C-sharp minor, Op.3-2 " will be just exequisite.
