    Me neither, I'm quite scared, hopefully she just takes a good break and then returns, god how I'm praying for that.

    by the way I found this right now, it looks like a Museum about Mao, where they display her costumes, competitive and private pictures as well as medals from her career. It looks soo incredible. one would expect a museum/exhibition to be made after a skater has passed away, or atleast once they have retired from their profession, but to get one while still competing

    This got to be the most interesting and fascinating museum there is, another place on my list I have to visit once I travel to japan, anyway here is the video:

    In case somebody hasn't heard... Mao and Yuzu recently received Guinness certificate for their WR SP scores. More links for pics and vids from the event can be found in the Yuzuru thread.

    And it has been reported that it has drawn record breaking crowds. I love the way Japanese people love their Mao.

    That's awesome, but I really didn't expect anything less, when I think about the TV rating that's been reported every time she appears in a TV show and in competition. The sponsors must be very pleased too, she is the safest and best investment they could make. even for people who don't follow figure skating, just knowing her achievement, personality, and the personal struggle she's been through should be reason enough to be curious about her and to want to know more about her.

    It's not a museum. It's like a temporary exhibition. I was there yesterday and it was amazing. The Vancouver medal is gorgeous.
    And soooooo many people were there. I was there at 10:10am, 10 minutes after the opening, and I had to queue like in Disneyland, turning here and there, queuing up and down the staircase. Took me 15 minutes of waiting time to get in.

    Mao Asada exhibition draws record crowd in Tokyo
    10,000 visitors in the first day...

    Not really surprising, given it's just an exhibition (not permanent), and Mao is so popular.
    A lot of people must want to see it, but they have a limited time to do it.

    It's doing a bit of a "tour" though, moving to different cities over the next few months. So it won't disappear for a while yet.

    I know. Kurt Browning has this story: every time they go to Japan they play find Mao because she is everywhere, supermarkets, malls, TV, billboards. Everywhere. He also said that when they go out as a group Mao is not able to go because she is so famous I guess her outings must be plan for security reasons. Fascinating

    It's good that she's very down to earth! All the Japanese ladies that I've been talking to about Olympics always mention "Mao-chan this mao-chan that" despite the skyrocketing Hanyu

    Well, Yuzuru himself said that his outings have to be planned now, so I guess Mao has company in the hotel now
