The March 10-12 event, entitled "notte stellata," starry night in Italian, will mark the 12th anniversary of the March 11, 2011, earthquake-tsunami disaster that devastated Miyagi and other northeastern Japan prefectures.

Among those joining Hanyu, who won back-to-back Olympic titles in 2014 and 2018, at Sekisui Heim Super Arena in the town of Rifu are retired female skaters Akiko Suzuki, Satoko Miyahara and Rika Hongo, who is also from Miyagi.
