    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Excellent work. So it should have been that it has never happened until day 11 this basho under the 15 day system introduced in May 1949. This is with the rikishi actually fighting not as in Kyushu 2018 when Kisenosato gave up a fusensho to Tamawashi.

    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.
