Shoma Uno and Sakamoto Kaori starred on home soil as the figure skating stars clinched the men's and women's titles at the NHK Trophy in Tokyo.
The NHK Trophy was the fourth event of this season's ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, taking place in the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in the Japanese capital.
And with fewer than 100 days until the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, Kaori and Uno staked their claims as medal contenders with victory.
