    ^ Yuzuru went back to Canada at the end of April. While he was there he did choreography for his new program with Wilson: he was also spotted by local skaters. After that he (obviously) returned to Japan at the end of May to perform in AOI.
    I don't know if he is back to Canada now, but that interview is hardly proof that he is still in Japan, as it's highly likely that it was recorded in one go. I can't find one good reason to make him and Shizuka go back every morning for ten days at 7am just to record 1.30 minutes of interview.

    Yeah, I saw his skate at AOI... which only makes my previous question about the coach more legitimate.

    Thx guys for all the infor, videos and translations etc.

    It's just so sweet to see Yuzu and his sister keeps such close relationship even he's already grown up, even he lives in Toronto now. For all these years, I cannot remember clearly how many times Yuzu talked about his family, but I could be recalled that every time he mentions about his family, I always could feel there's a strong bond between family members in Hanyu family.

    Saya, Yuzu's sister, not only looks like Yuna Kim but also has pretty same ability with Yuna Kim in executing 2A. Yuzu mastered his 2A by learning from Saya. Basically Saya is an early role model and a great inspiration for young Yuzu. Yuzu followed Saya in many fields, trained in same ice rinks and joined same skating clubs, and also Yuzu went to same elementary school and junior high school with Saya . I guess it could be said Yuzu probably wouldn't start his skating career without Saya, if so, we wouldn't even know Yuzu's existence from beginning.

    Of course he was not yet in great shape, but considering he couldn't skate a whole month and more, I think it was quite amazing to see him recover that quickly

    Shizuka: I vividly remember when you came following her to our rink. You were still a kindergartner and your sister, Saya was the one who took up skating first, wasn't she? (Yuzuru: Yes) So, I had a strong impression that she's the skater and you're the brother of that skater. Before I knew it, you've grown up to be one of the world's leading skaters, so I'm caught off guard! It's really thought-provoking.
    Yuzuru: Honestly, I was just following her footsteps and doing it as per usual. I even thought of quitting. So, I guess it's all thanks to her that I come to be what I am now.
    Shizuka: Indeed, she regularly came to the rink and as the result, you laid your eyes on skating and became a skater. That could be the reason but..
    Yuzuru: Yes.
    Shizuka: but did the actual desire to get onto the ice rink come from yourself?
    Yuzuru: I think I was the type to imitate whatever my sister was doing.
    Shizuka: I see
    Yuzuru: Due to that influence.. since my sister was doing it, I thought that I should as well. Double axel is particularly one of the stumbling blocks, isn't it? So when I saw her doing the jump, I thought 'I definitely want to jump like that'.

    Thank you for your quick translation! It's good for me to read it for studying English as I'm not a native English speaker.

    One thing, as a native Japanese speaker, where you put "I even thought of quitting", I hear Yuzu says "Although she has already quit skating."

    You're welcome. I'm neither an English nor a Japanese native speaker and I don't have the greatest command of both languages. There are times I can't fully grasp the nuances of what's being said or written, so I'm more than happy when somebody who's more knowledgeable rectifies my mistakes.

    Welcome to Yuzuru uber land SuzyQ, although I'm a newcomer too.

    This morning Shizuka started asking Yuzu about Olympics. Will we be able to hear something about his plan for next season?

    For those who haven't read the translations I've posted on another forum, here you go:

    18/06

    Shizuka: Well, that your family has been incredibly supportive of your activities leaves a deep impression on my mind
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: But what is the utmost driving force when it comes to your current activities as a figure skater?
    Yuzu: Well, there are times I pretty much don't feel like skating, take the earthquake as an example, when I strongly felt that it wasn't an appropriate situation to keep on skating. Well, whatever I say, there are indeed recurrent thoughts that I love skating but more than that, I realize that there are a lot of people watching over me.
    Shizuka: Yes, yes
    Yuzu: And I was made aware of their support when I participated in a post-earthquake charity show. Well, I believe that it has been my driving force since then
    Shizuka: Moreover, when you receive supportive words from your fans, saying something like 'watching your performance cheers me up', they will become your strength
    Yuzu: Yes, it's something I should be grateful for, so I need to work even harder.

    19/06

    Shizuka: I'd like you to know that in this 'My Olympic' radio program, we'll also pursue conversation with Olympics as the theme
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: Which Olympic Games.. which Olympic figure skating competition did you first watch?
    Yuzu: Well, probably, I was born in the year of Nagano Olympics, so....
    Shizuka: Nagano was in 1998
    Yuzu: in 1998?
    Shizuka: Yes, maybe..
    Yuzu: I see, I see, that wasn't it
    Shizuka: Lillehammer...
    Yuzu: Was it Lillehammer?
    Shizuka: You're born in the year of Lillehammer Olympics
    Yuzu: I see
    Shizuka: Probably, it's the year* you had started skating or hadn't..
    (*talking about Nagano Olympics not Lillehammer)
    Yuzu: I suppose so
    Shizuka: You probably hadn't..
    Yuzu: I hadn't.
    Shizuka: You were 3 years old after all
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: But surely, you knew about Nagano Olympics
    Yuzu: In that case
    Yuzu, Shizuka (almost in unison): Salt Lake City
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: You'd begun skating by then
    Yuzu: Yes, that Olympics left a strong impression on me
    Shizuka: So, that was around the time you started thinking 'Someday in the future, I want to appear at the Olympics!'
    Yuzu: Yes, it prompted me to resolutely think about it
    Shizuka: I see
    Yuzu: during the time of Salt Lake Olympics, yes
    Shizuka: And you're now gearing up towards the Olympics
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: Actually, when did you start having a clear vision of what you want to do as someone who has an Olympic spot within his grasp?
    Yuzu: Well, over the past one or two years, I presume *laughs* I had been competing as a Junior up until then. And before I knew it, I had transitioned into the Senior level, and now I am able to compete in this way. Frankly, I still haven't fully grasped the reality.

    Paola D, since Shizuka's started asking questions pertaining to the Olympics, I hope we get to hear about his programs for this coming season.
