    【photos】Yuzu visited his elementary school secretly to bring a big surprise to children

    Actually, Yuzu came back to his elementary school yesterday. The principle, teachers and parents association arranged a welcome ceremony under extremely secret.

    It is said that all pupils were gathered into stadium without being aware of his coming. When he showed up, the screams resounded through the stadium, a big surprise! The children sang the primary school song for Yuzu and he encouraged the kids holding their dreams in daily life.

    hardly to find the Yuzu

    thank you for the translation, winterbell ^__^

    and once again, thank you so much for all the info echotpe
    oh my, Yuzuru and all those little kids I bet that was one assignment he was really looking forward to for a change.
    And the idea with the cherry trees is really beautiful. (or is that something they do a lot in Japan, does anybody know?)

    I've never done it myself, but it is quite common. A lot of people plant trees to celebrate something like marriage, birth of a child, building a house, anniversaries, etc. And I just found out that different types of trees are chosen depending on the celebration. Cherry trees are often planted for graduation, entering school/companies, anniversary of the establishment (of schools/companies), to praise an honorable act. Yuzuru's tree probably fits into the last one. I'm learning something everyday here

    thanks, mikaboo ^_^ I was wondering if maybe there's some significance to what kind of tree they chose (I only ever hear of people planting oak trees, but that might be simply due to where I live)

    Thanks echotpe, I like the idea of the cherry tree and planting one to celebrate. When my nephew was born we planted a pinetree (cherry trees can´t grow up in my country, and actually the pine is the national tree in my country)

    Is nice that Yuzuru is having fun in his high school and elementary school. He is going incognito it seems.

    As always thanks for the links and potos. (And explinations)

    Speaking of, I just read a Charlie White interview about compiting in Olympics with Asthma.

    "At one point I had to get a therapeutic usage exemption form and prove that I had asthma," White said of the hassle of participating in the Olympics with his condition. "After that they would always test and measure the dosage I had in my system very carefully."
    In addition, "Being an athlete in a cold weather sport is really difficult to deal with the asthma," he said. "When you use the inhaler it has a little bit of synthetic adrenaline in it, and it kind of gets you going. But in a sport like figure skating where you want to be very under control, you have to find a great balance between being able to breathe enough and feeling like you're yourself. My doctor was able to find the correct medication for me to help me stay relaxed and calm, but at the same time be able to perform at my peak."

    when you speak of Japan, the image always comes with cherry blossom (remember the flower in his costume of the EX number Hana ni rare?) . Cherry blossom tree (not the species that grows the fruit cherry) is widely planted all over Japan, and thought to represent the spirit of Japanese people. I think there must be Japanese reading this thread and they must be able to say it more accurately. BTW: the one they planted for Yuzuru is somei-yoshino cherry blossom tree. You can easily find pics for the blossom.

    yes, well, silly me of course cherry trees should be the first thing that come to mind. My pollen allergy is really acting up today so I guess my brain just refused to go there but I did google somei-yoshino and there were some lovely picutres (damn you, allergies, I'm fighting back)

    Hello all lovely Yuzu's fans. I'm from Singapore and have been lurking around the forum for some time now. This is my first post

    I just went to the hotbladeshotpassion blog which Baterka shared and am amazed looking at the visitors live traffic feed. I can see fans from various countries around the world reading the article on Yuzu . Thank you to all that have shared articles, videos, photos, news, did translation etc. etc. Love Yuzu's fan community. I am imagining how it would look like if we have a collage of fans' photos of themselves doing Yuzu's R&J2 ending pose with their countries flags or landmarks in the background

    welcome Alia omg that idea of the collage sounds good haha. *but I think the ending pose of PW is more memorable ^^

    Thanks everyone for all the news about Yuzuru. I'm sure Yuzu was happy to visit his old school though maybe he didn't go that much because of the skating.

    welcome alia
    I agree, the idea of a collage sounds great (though I'd prefer the PW pose as well ^_^) Somebody should totally do that on tumblr or something. I bet you could get those pictures from all over the world in no time at all

    It's nice to hear that Yuzu is doing enjoying his time in Japan, especially with almost everyone on the streets of Japan recognizing him. The idea of planting a tree to commemorate a special event sounds like a really great tradition; I should try someday.
