Saga!!! on Ice Campaign Returns for Round 2 in Karatsu

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Karatsu in Saga Prefecture is gearing up for another round of Yuri!!! on Ice events starting in December. The city serves as the inspiration for the fictional Hasetsu, the hometown of underdog figure skater Yūri Katsuki.

A street festival to celebrate Karatsu Castle's acceptance as a UNESCO heritage site is one of the events planned. One of the castle's towers is currently under renovations but it's expected to be completed by July 22. More details will be announced on the official collaboration website.

The first campaign was a huge success and brought over 20,000 visitors from 27 countries between March and May.
