With Rika Kihira and Mako Yamashita having moved up to the senior ranks, there will be a new titlist crowned at the Japan Junior Championships this weekend at Accion Fukuoka.

The favorites coming into the competition this year are Yuhana Yokoi and Nana Araki. Yokoi, an 18-year-old from Nagoya, earned the women’s bronze medal at the Junior Grand Prix in Armenia last month, while Araki, a 16-year-old from Higashiura, Aichi Prefecture, took third place in this event last year.
