Comment by Ms. Asai
Currently, I'm practicing hard to prepare for the World Championships, as they are only three months away. By participating in the practice as a member of the U20 national team, I everyday learn new things I can't learn from the practice in WINDS. It is a tough task to create a "Japan national team" with players coming from all over Japan, but a lot of new revelations coming to me in the process make me feel very fulfilled. I intend to play my part fully in the national team while utilizing the intellectual playing style unique to ICU WINDS. We will do our best in the World Championships so that we can play in our own way.
