Iizuka Cup
August 4-7, Iizuka, Fukuoka

There's no official results. Depending on what I found on blogs and tweets.

In senior ladies, Akiko Suzuki won with the score of 180+. The only major error was a 1F in the FS. Overall, she skated very well in this early season but I don't think the international judges are so generous. The SP music is Edvin Marton's arrangement of Hungarian Rhapsody (Liszt), and the FS music is Die Fledermaus (Johann Strauss II).

In junior ladies, only SP scores of the top 2 were found.
1. Kako Tomotaki 52.38 clean
2. Yukiko Fujisawa 48.78 3T-3T 3Lz (two foot)

Tomotaki won with the score of 150+ in total. She's very consistent as always, but I have no idea how much she can get at international competitions. Fujisawa (Iizuka is her home rink) attempted the 3A and failed again.

Junior men's event almost looks like a preliminary round of junior nationals.
1. Ryuju Hino 187.50 2nd in the SP, won with a clean FS including two 3A's.
2. Keiji Tanaka 174.23 1st in the SP, has made too many errors in the FS.
3. Yoji Tsuboi 156.83
4. Sei Kawahara 146.00 His 3A is getting consistent, attempted a 4T (fall)
5. Ryuichi Kihara 140.99 Trying to master 3A but can't hope too much for his age.
