Shin-Juryo Kotokuzan visited Yokohama city hall recently to report his promotion to Mayor Fumiko Hayashi, as the first sekitori from the city since Zenshinyama, who made his last Juryo appearance in 1999. The design of his first kesho-mawashi was also revealed. On a blue background representing the Philippine Sea is a floral tribute featuring Yokohama's official flower, a rose, and jasminum sambac, the national flower of the Philippines. The Yokohama Citizens Volunteer Association will present it to him on July 4th.

That complete first kesho mawashi for Kotokuzan hadn't been posted yet hereFSJaGRQVUAA82jO.jpg:large

I haven't found an article of the actual presentation - here a pic from a member of the Yokohama city council

Gounoyama goes and gets a new keshomawashi from his alma mater Saitama Sakae: "Gives me impetus- getting a makekoshi after this has no meaning so I have to properly get a kachikoshi!!.."

Chiyosakae got a kesho mawashi showing Fukuchiyama castle, the symbol of his hometown in Kyoto, from his local koenkai for the first juryo from Fukuchiyama city, from Kyoto after 25 years again. The base color is that of his high school Kyoto Kyoei Gakuen High in Fukuchiyama, which is the donator. He plans to use it for the first 5 days of the basho. o

It's always a pleasure to read the story about each new kesho-mawashi -- the symbolism, why certain colors were chosen, why certain fruits or vegetables were added.  A big thank-you to all who have researched these and provided this information. 

Speaking of which, does anyone know the meaning of the large green spinach-looking leaves on Chiyosakae's new kesho-mawashi?

Looks like treetops to me.

Might be on a different thread.

Why is the inside of many kesho mawashi red with two circling golden dragons? Is there any symbolism or just to look cool?

The dragon is auspicious, most kesho mawashi have a chrysanthemum design in that hidden part. I have a video somewhere about the making of a kesho mawashi in which the hidden part is explained in short, maybe I can still find that.

A selection of different designs from the kesho mawashi at the Oh!sumo exhibitions is in this post.

Think that was part of the customary shin-jūryō interview. I hope a transcript gets published because there were a lot of interesting titbits I didn't catch - mainly the bit where he knows Hōshōryū and was presumably interviewed about choosing a different path and becoming established a lot later.

Ah yes, its all an interview about their lives, and talking about the KM is just a part of the interview.

Yeah, I am incredibly curious to try and see what he said about that.

They were on the same plane from Mongolia to Japan in 2015, for one thing.
