Yuri!!! on ICE has announced a special collaborative project between the anime and the anime’s model prefecture Saga. Tokyo Meijijingu Gaien Ice Skate Rink will be set up based on the anime’s skate rink for the project which is called Saga!!! on ICE. In Saga prefecture, there will be a special collaborative menu with local specialties on sale.
Yuri!!! on ICE protagonist Yuri Katsuki’s hometown, Hasetsu, is modeled on Saga prefecture and for that reason, we can see plenty of Saga’s buildings, sights and specialties in the anime. Saga!!! on ICE will be launched as a part of Saga prefecture’s local revitalization project, Saga Prize!
At Tokyo Meijijingu Gaien Ice Skate Rink, there will be a special space themed after the anime’s skate rink ‘Ice Castle Hasetsu’. With plenty of original illustrations and photograph spots set up throughout the rink, skaters can fully enjoy the anime’s distinctive world.
There is also Saga’s unique hospitality project scheduled for the weekend. This one-week-only special event will be held from March 6 to March 12.
Katsu city in Saga prefecture will offer a special collaborative menu as well as original goods, and launch exclusive projects that we can only enjoy in Saga. This will definitely be a great opportunity for all the fans to experience the world of Yuri!!! on ICE as well as the wonderful attractions of Saga. This project will continue for 2 months (from March 6 to May 7). There is no doubt that it will be an extremely boisterous event with a large crowd of people, since it takes place during the spring break and the Golden Week holiday.
The original logo for Saga!!! on ICE is modeled on the anime’s logo and Saga’s prefectural shape. Impressive, right?
Saga prefecture’s local revitalization project, Saga Prize! was launched back on July 2015 to convey Saga’s appeal through collaborations between business enterprises and brands. Saga Prize! has so far partnered up with the anime Osomatsu-san and the video game Splatoon.
