    Ring Blessing Ceremony

    Dohyo in professional sumo tournaments are consecrated ground. A ceremony called a dohyo-matsuri is performed the day before the meet starts. Those are free and open to the public. Sumo referees acting as Shinto priests bury items including rice, squid, salt and chestnuts in a small hole in the center of the ring. 10.00 am start usually. Doors open 9.45.

    Hokutoumi(now Hakkaku chairman looks to be last Yokozuna to pull out so late May 1988 after day 14. Is that correct?

    Kisenosato intai

    Obscurity doubtful, 30 plus years ahead seems the logical path as an oyakata will keep him in the public eye.

    Naivety if you think this forum is not followed by owners of the rights to broadcast. My point is Abema TV charge for the service and youtube is free.

    No idea who has done it but someone has abematv on youtube with commentary in Japanese for makuuchi. Vision has been starting early each day so far. I can see this getting shut down in future.
