Wow, not only are Sendagawa-oyakata and Sanoyama-oyakata filling in as gyoji, here's Takasago moonlighting as yobidashi...

That lady in the white kimono is stunning even if I can't see all of her face... It is a lady right? (*hopes he isn't embarrassing himself*)

So what happened to Amuru that he was absent for so long and dropped so far down? I checked the last video before his absence and he didn't seem to get injured.

Day 2 pics from the NSK Twitter
(click for the large version)

Is there a rule against multiple picture posts for a day ?
The NSK pic topics were big enough and with a meaningful subject, esp. days 3 and 5, which is now lost.
With the forum software positioning problems it would have been much more user-friendly to have them separated.
I wanted to have the NSK twitter pics in an easy to view daily collection, as the NSK page is a bit inconvenient for that.

I agree with you, as it seems the other moderator(s) did, as the posts have been moved (back?) to their own thread from Asojima's daily pics threads. And may I say thank you very much for discovering and sharing this treasure-trove of unusual perspectives of sumo! :-)

Unfortunately not back, but heaped up in total disorder, as they had topics for each day and those were posted not in daily order. With the mass of pictures now, the single days are no longer accessible, especially not with the current software.

Thanks. Nice to get a little idea of prices at the souvenir shops before I go. I wonder if my credit card will work over there.

Incidentally, this was Tsubakuro's second visit to the Kokugikan - before the basho he and Hiyonoyama also "attended" a class at the sumo school along with the regular deshi, and followed it up with a keiko session against each other.
