    Shikimori Inosuke wrote these colored papers for the Okayama Nabeya Hachiman shrine 900 year festivities, his old primary school after his father moved to Maniwa city was close to the shrine. One with nin 忍, endurance, one with fudoshin 不動心, steadfastness, both words he likes, both also have the shikona of the yokozuna and the ozeki, one also with the shikona of the sekitori from Takadagawa-beya, Ryuden and Kagayaki. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/local/okayama/news/20210303-OYTNT50107/ the classmate who told him about the festivities local NHK news clip https://www3.nhk.or.jp/lnews/okayama/20210307/4020008236.html

    New recruits Haru 2021

    Shibatayama talked to the press today about the cancellation of maezumo: "It's during the graduation season, when they go home for the graduation ceremony and come back and if by chance are infected, they bring the virus back to the heya. They'd have to stay in a hotel and get tested and then get back into the heya. Those who return for the graduation ceremony have been told not to come back till after the basho." About the jonokuchi banzuke: "There are also some with chonmage banzukegai. These included, the shimpan department has to coordinate the banzuke, the shinjo shusse hirou (new recruits presentation) will take place at the May basho." http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/202103050000838.html
