Shimanoumi gets a new one from his hometown Shima, Mie. Till the 1st it is on display at the city hall. It shows a spiny lobster, with eyes of extra large pearls, and also in the waves some pearls are used. In the part above, usually folded and unseen, a dragon design is used - with the hope that he rises up the banzuke like a rising dragon. http://www.isenp.co.jp/2018/06/27/19660/

Two alma mater kesho-mawashi for shin-Juryo Chiyonoumi. On the left is the traditional type for Nihon Taiiku university, on the right from Sukumo High School in his native Kochi prefecture.

Takayasu today received a new kesho mawashi, from Pressance Corporation (real estate). It shows a hermit crab, in gold colored embroidery on a dark ultramarine background. He plans to use it at the Nagoya-basho.

Shimanoumi on the 2nd was at the city hall to receive the new kesho mawashi: "A red kesho mawashi is rare. I want to use it from day 1 on and do my best." http://www.chunichi.co.jp/article/mie/20180705/CK2018070502000016.html

A new kesho mawashi for Daiamami, from the local Takeyama sangyo corporation as PR for the beauty of Amami: the blue sea and the green Amami islands, with the special natural monument - protected species, the Amami jay. It's his 4th kesho mawashi, and this basho he'll switch between them: this new one was planned for the first 2 days. http://amamishimbun.co.jp/2018/07/10/11887/

those with (rising) dragon top likely will be donated while still in the lower ranks

Lots of sea creatures but the lobster is shown in the sea and is red.. It's not red till you cook them.

Everybody knows they're best when cooked right at the seashore ;-).

Yes, yes, they are called "lobster", but we both know that's just another name for what we call Langusten. Not related to the real thing ;-)

However, the mawashi's killer.

They are most closely related by means of the the order decapoda, so as Benihana says, they're not related to the real lobsters. Though there are many different species of lobster and they come in all sorts of colours.

Chiyonoumi has a third kesho-mawashi, featuring a katsuo (skipjack tuna) which his home prefecture Kochi is famous for. It was intended to be ready from the start, but Kochi has been badly affected by the recent heavy rainfall and flooding in Japan, so the kesho-mawashi was stuck in transit for a while. Chiyonoumi is wearing it as a gesture of thanks for the support he has received from home.

Meanwhile the other shin-Juryo Churanoumi also has a shusshin-inspired kesho-mawashi, a lovely design featuring coral and starfish of Okinawa.
