    Another Sekitori Marriage

    Takayasu and Mori Konomi finally had their wedding on the 2nd at Tsukubasan Shrine. They will hold their reception on the 17th in Tokyo.

    New juryo pics Nagoya 2023

    No, it's just that he is among the three juryō rikishi that have demotable records (and additionally there were two sekitori retirements), and five promotions from makushita were announced. This made his demotion to makushita all but sealed.

    Ishiura Intai

    Either Enho can use the Hōchiyama clause (28 basho + oyakata as guarantor) or *tinfoil hat on* inherit Miyagino and let Hakuhō branch out.

    Narutobeya happenings

    That looks like a barrel of sake, not mochi

    New ozeki Kirishima

    That count is currently three with Asasekiryū, Kyokutenhō, and now Ichinojō. Safe to say that Tamawashi will be joining them as well.
  6. Myōgiryū acquired the Furiwake kabu, for much less than ¥100M, according to this interview with Ushiomaru's widow: https://www.news-postseven.com/archives/20230530_1873621.html?DETAIL

    Natsu 2023 discussion (results)

    Is it not from the ancient province name itself, Hōki Province (abbreviationed Hakushū)?

    To be fair, it's the same people.

    Trivia bits

    Could this be the first time that (non-kyujo) sanyaku rikishi have the same record for each rank on day 8? Y: 8-0 O: 6-2 S: 6-2 K: 3-5

    Tochinoshin intai

    I, Tochinoshin, have retired today. I would like to thank my fans for their support over the past 17 years. Since everyone has been cheering for me, I (was able to complete my sumo career.) Thank you very much for your support.

    Tochinoshin intai

    Not a single Japanese article on this yet, so I'm still skeptical. Could someone give a translation of this linked Facebook video?

    Rikishi Status - 2023 Natsu

    Takayasu hurt his right hip adductor muscles (inside of the thigh). His medical certificate prescribed three weeks' rest, so he is unlikely to rejoin the basho.

    It's the sumo training institute. You can find its entrance on the southeast side of the Kokugikan on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/WjSd8fdQNLHhKP6w7

    Trivia bits

    You need to sort by the record instead: http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&form1_rank=J&form1_y=on&sort_basho=2&sort_by=record&offset=500
  15. This is in fact an "involuntary" resignation, which is how it's a lighter punishment reputation-wise. Correspondingly, the financial punishment is lighter as well.
