The colour reserved for ozeki and yokozuna fringes is purple. This is the Nagatanien colour, the sponsor, the biggest kensho sponsor in sumo and Terunofuji is their man, their first yokozuna.

Will Endo their next yolcozana?

Hakuyozan has received a new kesho-mawashi from his hometown of Shirataka, Yamagata prefecture. Costing around 3 million yen, it features symbols of the town and prefecture - a white hawk (shiroi taka) and the official flower of the prefecture, a safflower. The flower was dyed with locally-produced dyes made from safflowers, which are widely grown in Yamagata.

It was unveiled at the town hall on August 26th and will be on display there until September 5th, when it will be sent to Hakuyozan for (hopefully) use in the Aki basho. Since he couldn't attend in person, his mother stepped in alongside the Mayor, Seishichi Sato.

Hakuyozan's mother was interviewed in detail and also talked about start of keiko of her son.
