When fandoms collide

Did anybody else catch Makoto saying Asahi moved to Kyushu after he left Iwatobi?

Karatsu (which Hasetsu is based on) is in the island of Kyushu.

So Asahi left to go to Kyushu and lived another life as a figure skater for a while only to return to Tokyo and start his old life again.

TDLR: Basically, Asahi and Yuuri are both voiced by Tosshi Toyonaga and the writers decided to make an inside joke.
