Celebrate Katsuki Yuri's Hometown with Saga!!! on Ice Collaboration!

The attractive coastal city of Hasetsu is the hometown of star figure skater Katsuki Yuri in the popular anime series Yuri!!! on Ice. But did you know that Hasetsu is actually based on the real-life city of Karatsu in Saga Prefecture? As part of its local revitalization project Sagaprise!, Saga Prefecture has teamed up with Yuri!!! on Ice to create the collaboration project Saga!!! on Ice, which is taking place in both Tokyo and Saga from Monday, March 6. This fun project is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on exclusive Yuri!!! on Ice merchandise while also supporting a beautiful and fascinating part of Japan. Specially drawn illustrations and events set to take place in each location have been announced ahead of the project, so let's take a look!

A Message from the Governor of Saga Prefecture, Yamaguchi Yoshinori
"When I first saw Yuri!!! on Ice, I remember being seriously shocked and moved as I realized 'That's Karatsu!' We've prepared a number of projects so that through the power of anime, everyone can discover first-hand what makes Saga Prefecture so special. Whether it's the train station that Katsuki Yuri arrives at in the first episode, the road where he goes jogging, or his beloved katsudon, we'd love for you to experience Saga too.
Saga's the best!"
