Kobe 9 Cruise: Fan Appreciation Day Rained Out, but not Eri Yoshida

Tags: , , ,

Fan Appreciation Day was rained out for the Kobe 9 Cruise, but many fans still showed up for their last chance to see Eri Yoshida.

Yoshida spent over an hour signing autographs and taking pictures with fans and said that she was glad to have another chance to meet her fans one last time.

Today marked Yoshida's final day in a Kobe 9 Cruise uniform.

"I haven't made any decisions yet," said Yoshida.  "I'm not sure if I'll go to any tryouts, but I will continue practicing.  I will record my first victory or save next year."
