To be honest, figure skate has been my favorite sport since childhood, and I used to go to the ice link and learn the basics. But I had to stop it around the age of 12 because I became more serious about playing piano. So it was my dream to collaborate with figure skaters!

This show is supposed to happen only once on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the diplomatic relation between Switzerland and Japan, so I hope you can come and attend this spectacle. (I suggest you take the Swiss to travel to the Geneva airport, as they are sponsoring the project ;))

See you maybe there!!
