Recommended Posts

The sekitori departed to the summer jungyo in the Tohoku area today by shinkansen.
First jungyo experience for Oosunaarashi and Endo:
oo-sd-1308014-endou-ns-big.jpg

BQkhfEKCAAANoaF.jpg

A short one. On the 2nd Oga, Akita, 3rd Morioka, Iwate, 4th Obanazawa, Yamagata. On the 5th in Souma and Minami-souma, Fukushima, 2 fan events with yokozuna dohyo-iri.

Hakuho wants to have back a keiko MVP cash bonus at the jungyo, started for lower ranked rikishi in the 1986 spring jungyo, abolished after the 2001 winter jungyo. It was e. g. 300 000 yen from the NSK or 1000 bottles of beer from sponsors.

Out in the wild, trying to cope...

Nice! Perfect fit to his facial expression!

Inspired me for this one:

"Should I try a henka on the ticket gate...?"

Day 1, Oga jungyo, about 2700 visitors.
Kisenosato named Tokushoryu as keiko partner, 9-2 at sanban-geiko.
Harumafuji picked Endo for butsukari-geiko, who also had 9 moushi-ai bouts.

Oosunaarashi at moushi-ai with Sokokurai, 3-4. Butsukari-geiko with Gagamaru, but escaping a treatment like Endo, at which time he already had left and didn't watch it – he is targeted by Hakuho.

First day assembly, Endou arrived 40 minutes early. "I was like Bolt-I just flew too fast.." he jested. OTOH, Oosunaarashi was a few minutes late and made a full-fledged celeb entrance. Both have been targeted by Hakuhou for keiko. "I'm just happy he knows my name.." said Endou. "It's all good," said Oosunaarashi

After dealing with Endou yesterday, Harumafuji proceeded to deal with Oosunaarashi today. The Ramadan is taking its toll- Oosunaarashi was short on stamina today and was continuously being rolled to the ground and conspicuously keeping his body too high. "Get angry!! Use your hatred and attack!!" shouted Harumafuji, to no avail. They went at is for 9 minutes, one minute longer than yesterday's Endou session. "I'm tired.. The last week of Ramadan is the most difficult.. I'm tired.." he explained.

"Here..smell that!!"

"OMG, that is rank.."

Hakuhou did some "yamageiko" (Outdoor training in the rough, "mountain keiko") today. He seems to have gotten over his injury but did not do any butsugari keiko, just some regular bouts with the young guys. Then, he challenged them all to a 50 meter dash. He won all his bouts but came in third in the race. "Running uses different muscles.." he joked.

One of the coolest pictures EVER..

Endo on the 2nd 5-4 in moushi-ai bouts with Takanoiwa etc. Several watching oyakata told Harumafuji to give Endo a kawaigari treatment at butsukari-geiko.

On the evening of the 2nd at the Sansa dance parade in Morioka: Toyonoshima, 3 other sekitori where there as well.

On the 3rd HF named Takayasu for moushi-ai bouts, but was dissatisfied with him: “He doesn't show his full strength.”
P2013080301860_haruma-ns-big.jpg

On the 4th the Obanazawa jungyo: Sadogatake-oyakata came there last month for preparations, he is from that town. The last jungyo there was in 2001, then he was there as Kotonowaka.
About 260 take part in the jungyo.

nice to see Harumafuji without the ankle wraps. I hope he is feeling healthier and that we avoid watching him use weak footwork during the basho.

also happy for Endo being picked for kawaigari. He is already one of my personal favourites from the roster.

Hakuho also did 15 bouts Mongol-zumo with his tsukebito – for keiko adapted to his injury state, training without tachi-ai with the young ones is just the right thing.

Hakuho was 8-0 with Tokushoryu.

Chiyotairyu got a kawaigari treatment from Kisenosato, who also was 12-0 against him and Kotoyuki in keiko bouts.
sp-hk130805-5-ns-big.jpg

Last day of the jungyo, sympathy event for the disaster stricken areas, the sekitori did it in two groups, in two locations:
Hakuho had a dohyo-iri in Souma in front of about 1300 spectators, with Myogiryu and Shohozan, Harumafuji did it in Minami-Souma, about 1500 spectators, with Goeido and Tokitenku – not the usual assistants but a sekiwake and komusubi each.

A few more pictures from the concluding event of this jungyo.

Arriving in Soma, Hakuho paid a courtesy visit to the Mayor, Hidekiyo Tachiya.

I don't know which one of them was the recipient, but somebody got the words of a special sumo jinku about the recovery efforts of Soma.

Elsewhere, rikishi from Tamanoi-beya set up a chanko station, serving up 500 bowls of the heya's chanko.

Wrapping things up with some pictures from the other concluding event of this jungyo. Arriving in Minamisoma, Harumafuji paid a courtesy visit to Mayor Katsunobu Sakurai. Once again, a copy of the special jinku was exchanged.

These were the sumo gifts which could be won by spectators in the prize-drawing.

Rikishi-turned-artist Kototsurugi was on hand here, providing sketches for the local children.

That's not Tochinowaka- that's the wax figure of him they made for Madame Sumou (the new sumo wax museum, slated to open in January in Dokodemonai, Chiba.).
