Does that mean they are now selling fake giant macarons? Please say yes and please say they are reasonably priced.

Unfortunately the article doesn't say if the girls designed also this macaron version - the kensho banners were listed to be real ones when I was there to have a photo taken with it - and I don't think Nagatanien had them designed by Jissen. That fake macaron gets spent during one basho's event - it crumbles:

at the Sumo market outside, the macaron is a small and already quite battered version

looks only big with kawaii girls like this - the kensho banners and the kensho pack (empty envelopes) are real ones though

kensho banners are for Nagatanien and for Mochi-kichi sembei, which also are a present option (also o-cha-zuke from N.) when you get a photo taken with the items - by NSK part time helpers - in the hope you buy more sembei at the nearby Mochi-kichi booth

maybe the part time helpers and the girls on the photos above at the sumo market event also were from Jissen univ.

Michinoku-oyakata (as Kirishima the Alain Delon of sumo) today had his kanreki celebration in the kokugikan event floor  - his 60th birthday is on Apr. 3rd.  About 200 guests, KONISHIKI among them.

Nakamura (Yoshikaze) went with his brothers to Sanji, one of their apparently favorite restaurants, to start a Sanji low carbs diet

I guess oyakata are not yet obliged to appear in public with a proper shave
