Kiira on Japanese NHK TV programs

Kiira is frequently appearing on promotional videos for “Nordic Special” TV programs by NHK, Japanese public broadcasting organization – as you know, one of organizers of NHK Trophy (the other organizer is Japan Skating Federation).

In the videos, Kiira says “shi-a-wa-se” which means “Happiness” in Japanese.

“Nordic Special – from countries of happiness -” programs will be started from Sat, 23 to Sun, 31 July and they will introduce the charms of 5 Nordic countries with 70 programs for 80 hours.

 

Yesterday, I found a really huge poster of Kiira at Shinjuku station in Tokyo! Wow!

Just only one regret: she fails the GP Finals in Beijing for two – damned – points! What a pity…
But this isn’t so important, at the moment…
Kiira did it! Finally!
She deserved such a satisfaction.
