It's the same program but better quality.
He said that he didn't go out or sightseeing to anywhere because he was burned out in practice every day.
(Also he said "because I don't understand English!!")
He hasn't gone to even Niagara Falls near where he lives.

another translation...just two parts
After Maliposa Gala (around 6:35)
Yuzuru: Ahh...!! I'm tired!!
Man: Did you feel the difference between Japanese shows and this show?
Yuzuru: I was nervous because I didn't have any idea about reactions by the foreign audience.
In Japan, arenas are always packed with a large crowd and we hear people screaming and
handclapping...I was nervous of skating in this kind of situation(=maybe in front of a small
number of non-Japanese people).
Body treatment(around 18:15)
Yuzuru: It hurts!!
Narration: His body was screaming by the practice to which every day does not get used.
Yuzuru: It hurts very much...
Massage therapist: You are getting out of breath, are you ok?
Yuzuru: I'm not ok...
Yuzuru: Surely I have a pain right there.
Massage therapist: You skate dynamically, so inflammation may remain in the joints.
I hope someone will provide us better translation because it is a very good documentary.
Now my heart is flying to Sendai!!

is there anybody who can translate Yuzu's interview after the FS?
thanks in advance!

I'll roughly translate it. I'm using this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwxSAJG8EIU but it starts half way. If you have another video, please share. The one with some foreign language commentary makes it hard to catch Hanyu's words.
Hanyu: I was a little tired in the 2nd half.
Interviewer: What was your condition in the 2nd half?
Hanyu: I was able to perform quite well in the first half, but I got tired in the 2nd half.
Interviewer: Were you affected by the jump?
Hanyu: The jump did greatly affect me, but falling on the spin was not good, so I have to practice much much more.
Interviewer: Your reaction after the free looked totally different from that in SA.
Hanyu: I went into the free with a different mood and I practiced a lot this time so I had confidence going into the free.
Interviewer: Your senior Takahashi Daisuke almost made a comeback, how do you feel about that?
Hanyu: I could hear the cheering before my turn, and I thought he must have done well, so I relaxed a little and I think I was able to concentrate better thereafter.
Interviewer: How do you feel about winning Takahashi?
Hanyu: I don't feel like I have won him, but I did well in both sp and fs, so perhaps that's why I won.
Interviewer: This time's competition is in Miyagi, how do you feel about it?
Hanyu: On the bus, what I saw made me feel like ah this is where I lived, so I was quite calm.
Interviewer: Next is the GP final, a big meet, how do you want to perform?
Hanyu: I am very happy that 4 Japanese men are going to GPF, so I won't feel nervous and I won't feel foreign, so I want to perform better and to a higher level.
Interviewer: I look forward to it. Thank you.
Hanyu: Thank you.
ETA I found another interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuNQoUyxdZw not sure which is the one you want.
Hanyu: Thank you.
Interviewer: This loud cheer, and your first NHK win, how do you feel?
Hanyu: Frankly, I feel that I could have done better in my SP (!!!), but my movements are smoother than in SA, which I think is owed to everyone's support.
Interviewer: Was there a big plus that this competition was held in your hometown?
Hanyu: Yeah, I feel thankful to be in my hometown and I can feel calm in this environment so I could relax. Even though I didn't do very well, I think I did good.
Interviewer: Takahashi caught up quite a bit, how do you feel?
Hanyu: Well this is my hometown, and a lot of people came to watch, so I thought that if I harnessed the crowd's cheer and support and skate till the end, everything should go smoothly.
Interviewer: Your 1st half was very good.
Hanyu: Yeah, but I tripped in the salchow, but I stood up most jumps, but I got a little tired in the 2nd half, so I think I need to practice more.
Interviewer: So GPF is decided, and a lot of fans are looking forward to it, may I have your thoughts?
Hanyu: Getting first and going to GPF is a very good feeling and I'm very happy that I could win NHK in my hometown.
I will translate the documentary if I have time.
