Briefly in Paris this year. She signed for everyone who wanted an autograph and was very professional about it Erika Takao, Akiko Morigami and Ai Sugiyama were more friendlier and outgoing than Aiko but she was still really nice and polite. Ayumi Morita on the other hand is far from friendly or outgoing.
i agree that moragami is friendly, she is willing to have a chat and she is fluent in English. i wonder, therefore, if aiko's english is that proficient.
she was actually in singapore back in february, on her way back to japan after the Oz Open to meet up with one of her old coaches and meet his students. unfortunately i only found out about it after she had left.
Fuda san is very polite about signing. Not sure about Namigata as i got her to sign a pic at last year's Tokyo Open and she seemed a bit bemused, maybe because i was asking her to sign a 2005 Tokyo Open pic.
