--Do you have any questions to ask each other?
K: Let me see. Now that Satton is one of the oldest among Japanese ladies, what made your body feel tired and heavy the most lately?
S: When I was a junior, no matter how many times I did run through, it was not tiring. But recently it's a little different [laughter]. Only at heart I remain around 16-year old, but these days my body feels exhausted more often, even when I want to practice more.
K: Your stamina in junior years was ridiculous [laughter]. With a drop in stamina, actually your strength is finally at a normal level now, right?
S: You may be right, but it’s a little frustrating that I cannot do run-throughs as much as in the past [laughter].
--I cannot really imagine Miyahara senshu gasping for air. Are you sure?
S: Yes, that’s how it is now. I get dead tired in practice [bitter smile]. In competition though, I have an adrenaline rush and I don’t feel so exhausted as in practice. But compared to when I was a junior skater, my endurance is lower.
--Next, Miyahara senshu, do you have any questions you want to ask Tanaka senshu?
S: What was the most fun thing you did which made you laugh your head off lately?
K: It’s like one of those things you do when you live along. When I watch variety shows on TV, I laugh out loud alone.
S: I can totally relate to that!
K: I don’t feel awkward laughing my head off when I’m alone any more [laughter]. Rather, laughing aloud alone feels so natural these days.
--What kind of TV show do you watch?
K: I simply watch variety shows and manzai (t/n: Japanese traditional stand-up comedy performed by duos).
S: Me, too. I watch Japanese variety shows on YouTube. There are so many TV channels available here that I don’t know what’s going on. So I watch CNN for now.
K: Cool!
--Another thing you two have in common is cooking. What is the best dish you’ve cooked recently?
K: I know Satton cooks high quality dishes.
S: Hehehe [laughter]. Recently, meat stew came out good. I stewed bone-in beef for about 3 - 4 hours adding soy sauce, mirin (sweet rice wine) and honey.
K: Super [laughter]!
S: It was delicious [laughter].
K: Her cooking, too, has a high level of quality.
S: Ahaha [laughter].
K: For me, I guess it is miso soup. It’s the easiest one to cook [laughter]. I only have to cut up and cook vegetables, and add miso when the veggies are done. These days, I add and cook one piece of mochi (rice cake) and enjoy the soup. It’s the easiest dish for me to cook and it’s also filling, so it’s my favorite regular dish these days.
S: Yes, mochi is good!
K: I used to use powdered dashi (bouillon) for broth, but I ran out of it, so I’m only using miso for flavoring. Well, I hope veggies enhance the taste of the soup anyway [laughter].
S: I’m thinking about asking Keiji-kun for his miso soup.
K: In that case, I’ll buy powdered broth ahead of time [laughter].
S: Ahaha [laughter].

S: I want to try pairs or ice dancing, but I’m not good at adjusting to others.
Thank you for the translation! The interview was really interesting. Funny enough some time ago when somebody suggested that Deniss Vasiljevs should switch to pairs I started to wonder which lady is tiny enough for him and immediately thought about Satton. It would be nice to see them skating together, not necessarily as a competitive pair, just to see if they would look that great I imagine they would...

Satoko Miyahara - Dreams on ice (Song for the little sparrow)
Honest and mesmerizing as always. I really wish she could bring it back (in this teal costume) for the Olympics season! There's something special, genuine and "uniquely Satoko" in this program, which Lyra Angelica lacks, in my humble opinion.

Song for the little sparow is a gorgeous program and suits her very well. Lyra Angelica is the first competion program coregraphed by Jeffrey Butle for her, I hope will be a great program. I'm waiting to see this program in GP before forming an opinion about it.
I hope she is training right now in Canada with Lee Barkel.
