Iriyama also updated her Google+ on the same day with her smiling photo, "Everyone, I am sorry for causing so many worries this time. Though I fractured and got some slashes, I received stitches at a hospital in Iwate, and I returned to Tokyo yesterday. Currently, I am in a calm environment and living quietly. I am able to smile everyday! The support and encouragement from you all are helping me a lot. I hope I could show you myself looking cheerful soon. Please wait for me (^o^)?." (Iriyama's Google+)
