I, Yuzuru Hanyu, have decided to get married… I’ll continue to spend my life with everyone who has supported me, along with figure skating, living life, and moving forward with everything I’ve got.

Although many fans supported the couple respectfully from afar, Hanyu said his wife experienced verbal harassment, stalking, invasions of privacy, and more after their marriage became public knowledge. He revealed the details in an official statement published by Japanese media.

Korean fans translated the original Japanese statement into their language, which has been further translated into English below:

To everyone who has supported me,

Thank you so much for your warm words and encouragement as always. It is a personal matter, but there is something I want to tell you guys. I previously married a non-celebrity. We married each other after undertaking that we both sincerely respect and treasure each other. We have both taken a few things into consideration in order to protect each other and have overcome things together. As we lived like that, the situation where my wife was not able to take a single step outside the house continued to happen. She acted so as to protect me, and has been supportive of me.

Currently, a variety of media outlets have been acting in an untoward way, verbally harassing, stalking, investigating and publishing without permission, involving my non-celebrity wife, her family, or those related to her, as well as my family, and those related to me. Even in our own homes, there were times where suspicious people would come by, even screaming at us.

But as I was unskilled in dealing with it, currently, it is very difficult for us to bear this, and it is hard to continue to protect ourselves if the situation continues. Considering the chances that the situation will continue, even if it temporarily gets better, thinking of the future and her happiness, in order for her happiness to not be limited, we have decided to get divorced.

Moving forward, I sincerely beseech of you, to stop all the harassment, stalking, and untoward behavior towards my non-celebrity [former] partner, her family and those related to her, as well as towards those of mine.

Please continue to support me in the future.

In November 2023, he embarked on The Repray Tour, the first solo ice show tour to ever be produced in figure skating. The shows took place in Saitama, Saga, Yokohama, and Rifu in Japan, from November until April of this year. Originally, the tour only had three stops, but Rifu was added due to high ticket demand.

After the tour ended, Hanyu took to Instagram to thank his fans for their unwavering support.

The “→RE_PRAY←” TOUR has been completed!

It’s a bit sad to say goodbye to these sets, videos, and stories, thinking that I won’t encounter those scenes again.

I feel like it’s truly a miracle to have made so many memories and received the thoughts of each player.

Thank you so much, everyone! 🎮🧊📗 I will keep working hard! Please continue to support me!

Thank you for watching and playing, praying “→RE_PRAY←”!!! I wish to see you again! Thank you for coming from all over the world!
