    Yusho portraits donated

    After getting removed from the kokugikan walls, yusho portraits usually get donated somewhere Hakuho donated the one from Kyushu 2012 to Sasaguri-town, where MIyagino-beya has its Kyushu lodgings since 2011. He was there on the 15th for the ceremony. On the portrait he wears a kesho mawashi from the Miyagino-beya Kyushu koenkai .http://www.nishinippon.co.jp/nnp/f_toshiken/article/487237 older news from other threads

    Kensho Aki 2020

    The Morinaga-sho was on the revenge match for what had cost Asanoyama his yusho chance last time. Terunofuji had his last big pack, the top 2 should be like that in the end, if Takakeisho manages to keep his injuries low level. Endo and Mitakeumi are big kensho magnets, if they win half of the remaining bouts, they could overtake Terunofuji, who also has a few sponsors though, quite more than Shodai. Terunofuji did CMs for Nagatanien and gets 2 each day from them, 1 from the Japanese language school JSL and regularly a few more. Kotoshogiku got 5 as his return bonus - full list Day 7 111: Takakeisho 58: Asanoyama (M) 57: Terunofuji 46: Endo 32: Mitakeumi 20: Takayasu 17: Shodai 15: Takanosho 13: Hokutofuji 13: Kagayaki

    Kensho Aki 2020

    The Morinaga-sho stays with Takakeisho. The 4 kensho from Enho brought Kagayaki into the rankings, 8 in the first place is unusual for him: 4 from Takayasu, 3 from Tokushoryu and even 1 against Aoiyama, so he has a sponsor now, the baito-/part time job- search service company ENTry. Shodai as well gets 1 each day from them, as does Ryuden - full list Day 6 100: Takakeisho (M) 46: Endo 45: Terunofuji 32: Asanoyama 32: Mitakeumi 17: Shodai 16: Takayasu 14: Takanosho 13: Hokutofuji 12: Kagayaki

    New NSK council with Sadaharu Oh

    Today in the kokugikan was one of the replacement meetings of the Oh council, the 7th meeting, for about 2 hours, about sumo-beya and the relation between shisho and deshi - one subject there was the close-down of Nakagawa-beya. The NSK explained about scouting and rearing deshi and the hardships of the okamisan and more. 2 meetings are still planned, and the final report to be delivered till March o 7 of the 8 members were present, kabuki actor Matsumoto Hakuo again absent o
  13. The rijikai yesterday also decided to install a new experts council to think about developing the inheritance of sumo into the future, coping with the internationalization, respecting the presently drafted governance code of the sports agency as guideline for the management of competition associations like the NSK is (the draft includes the demand for at least 40% of female riji). The council is advisory committee for the rijicho and should compile within a year and a half guidelines for the NSK's own governance rules, especially how to guide foreign born rikishi - all measures to cope with the violence scandals, where Harumafuji is the quoted example. 8 members, with baseball legend Sadaharu Oh the most prominent, prominent kabuki and film actor (now under the name of:) Matsumoto_Hakuō_II, actress Misako Konno, writer Takashi Atouda 阿刀田高 (German, French wiki available), honorary Keidanren president Takashi Imai 今井敬, former supreme court judge Takehiko Ootani 大谷剛彦, lawyer Keiichi Tadaki 但木敬一, as chairman YDC member Masayuki Yamauchi 山内昌之.

    Corona and sumo

    The now traditional (13th) scarecrow festival in Mitsue village, Nara, focused on the Abe-no-mask, which each citizen in Japan had received from the government. This piece is meant to depict Nara new local hero Tokushoryu o with the one who made it - it lacks the proper volume to qualify as bearing resemblance o definitely more scary with mask - but will the crows notice?

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Today it was Nishikifuji's turn on NHK. He brought the kesho mawashi from the heya koenkai, showing Oirase gorge.

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Masunoyama (21) got a new kesho mawashi from his local koenkai with the image character of his home town Chiba, Sakae-cho, the dream dragon mascot Drum/Doramu: D(o)ra<gon><Drea>m(u). The source is that during the Nara period, when the town suffered from a drought, the legend tells that a dragon rose to the sky and let it rain (which is the profession of the Asian dragons). Masunoyama: "Following this, I want to rise up the banzuke. I want to reach sanyaku." He will rise up to the upper half of maegashira next basho (w13 with 11 wins). "I will meet strong opponents, therefore I want to do my sumo with all my strength."
