Members of Japan’s rhythmic gymnastics team perform in Tokyo on Thursday.

Japan’s rhythmic gymnastics team wore new uniforms at a pep rally in Tokyo on Thursday, featuring Hokusai Katsushika’s famous ukiyo-e work “Under the Wave off Kanagawa” on the back.

The rally was held ahead of the Japanese team’s participation in the Asian Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships, which start in Uzbekistan on May 2. The Asia tournament also serves as a qualifier for the Olympic Games in Paris.

“Under the Wave off Kanagawa” is part of Hokusai’s series “36 Views of Mt. Fuji.” The team implemented a new program, demonstrating their readiness for the competition.

“I will never give up. I want to commit [a ticket to the Paris Olympics]” said team captain Ayuka Suzuki.
