    Eastern senior men
    Daisuke Murakami
    Kento Nakamura
    Akio Sasaki

    Eastern senior ladies
    Haruka Imai
    Yuki Nishino
    Fumie Suguri
    Shoko Ishikawa

    Ishikawa had a horrible free skate at last week's Eastern Japan Inter-Collegiate Championships (no jump and only 8 points for the TES). If she repeats such a performance, the NHK spot would be given to Kokubun (her home town is Sapporo).

    Eastern junior ladies
    Risa Shoji
    Haruna Suzuki

    Roanna Oshikawa and Karen Kemanai are not listed.

    Western senior men
    Takahito Mura

    Mura skated brilliantly at Western Japan I-C Championships (all clean including a 4T and 7 triples).

    Western senior ladies
    Shion Kokubun
    Satsuki Muramoto
    Ayaka Hosoda
    Kana Muramoto
    Rina Kondo
    Ayumi Goto
    Yuka Kono
    Ayane Nakamura

    Western junior men
    Keiji Tanaka
    Ryuju Hino
    Sei Kawahara
    Shoma Uno
    Ryuichi Kihara
    Yoji Tsuboi

    Western junior ladies
    Satoko Miyahara
    Riona Kato
    Miu Sato
    Kako Tomotaki
    Miyabi Oba
    Yukiko Fujisawa
    Saya Ueno
    Rin Nitaya
    Hinano Isobe
    Ayana Yasuhara
    Miyu Nakashio
    Rika Hongo
    Ibuki Mori

    This must be a very tough competition. Only 14 (Oba and Tomotaki included) can advance to junior nationals. I suspect it would require at least 125 points.

    Three ice dance teams are listed. Brina Oi (Curran Oi's younger sister) is one of them.

    Edit to correct
    Shoko Ishikawa was not listed, I have mistaken for Yuka Ishikawa. Shoko seems to have good political backings through her coach Nobuo Sato. At this point, the NHK spot could be considered undecided yet.
