Day 11 pics from the NSK Twitter - feature: gyoji writing

(click for the large version)

BBRVX8DCcAAZ_s6.jpg

goyji written sumo characters (sumo-ji) - Sagatsukasa-Chiyonokuni

BBRWL3pCMAArd2z.jpg

Kyokutenho-Toyonoshima - gyoji write the banzuke, torikumi sheets etc.

BBRWqxnCYAAvGmc.jpg

Baruto-Goeido - gyoji learn the sumo-ji when they enter, 1st year easy ones starting with mountain 山yama/san,zan and river 川kawa,gawa, 2nd year sea 海umi/kai、brocade 錦nishiki、dragon 龍ryu/tatsu, characters that are often used in shikona.

BBRXZZJCQAAkAH0.jpg

Kakuryu-Kisenosato - 3rd-5th year they write real shikona on top of this type of colour copied sheets. The different colours are to make it easier to distinguish in the banzuke.

BBRYOjWCAAIp8M1.jpg

Harumafuji-Hakuho - after getting used to writing shikona, they write the wooden banzuke or the match-ups.

Becoming able to write sumo-ji with a brush takes long training time.

These training sheets are written by Kimura Motoki.

at the bottom of the drum tower a wooden banzuke and the torikumi of the day, all written in sumo-ji

Kao-bure, the match-ups: the sheets the tate-gyoji had read out in the juryo-makuuchi break the day before, put there in the morning

As i stared at the mascot it morphed into Chiyotaikai for a second, i think i need more sleep.

I would say that wasn't a severe morph.

Per Akinomaki's requests merged, resulting in a humongous page. :-)

Thanks - not bad as a collection to have it all together, but during the basho daily posts are a better solution, both for posting and for reading.

The second half of the basho the daily lists were shorter - I don't know if during the basho a merge with the daily pics by Asojima is preferable or the separate posts - and if after the basho a merged thread should be created every time.

Full index (also updated at the top of the thread)

Beh, I can't write below your quote after I trimmed it. One more for the Update thread... Anyway - whether you post separate threads or add to Asojima's, it's always possible to merge it all into one thread after the basho. Splicing posts from one thread is a bit more work then merging a whole thread, though.
