The event will take place April 15-18 in the Maruzen Intec Arena.

Anna Shcherbakova and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva finished first and second respectively in the ladies’ singles at the ISU world champs, and are looking to repeat that feat in Japan.

Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic silver medallist Mikhail Kolyada joins Russian junior national champion Evgeni Semenenko as the men’s singles representatives.
