Recommended Posts

First, some pictures from Dewanoumi-beya's asageiko session on the morning of Day 12.

Dewanoumi-beya has a long history, and photographs of former shisho watch over the keikoba. From the right in this one are: 19th Yokozuna Hitachiyama (shisho 1914-1922); former Komusubi Ryogoku (1922-1949) and 31st Yokozuna Tsunenohana (1949-1960).

And more recent shisho, from the right former Maegashira Dewanohana (1960-1968) and 50th Yokozuna Sadanoyama (1968-1996).

Also overlooking the keikoba is a photograph of Hitachiyama and Umegatani II, performing the sandangamae ceremony in 1909 to mark the opening of the first Ryogoku Kokugikan.

The current shisho, former Sekiwake Washuyama, oversees asageiko.

To the present-day Kokugikan now, where Mihogaseki-oyakata was back again to greet the fans with Hiyonoyama. It'll be Furiwake-oyakata for Day 13.

Thanks for all your contributions, which have been really excellent!

You're welcome. :-) There's been a nice variety this basho I think, especially with the two kimono days in there too, so credit to the Kyokai for that. I'm pleased you're enjoying the pictures.

Before I forget again, the popularity poll results for Day 12.

Makuuchi 1-2-3: Endo / Masunoyama / Ikioi

Juryo 1-1-3-3: Sokokurai & Terunofuji (tied) / Chiyootori & Kitaharima (tied)

I'm not sure if you still have this one, but I might be interested in it... Could you upload it again? It would be highly appreciated! :)

Well, it's a picture of a framed picture so it has reflections in the glass, but here it is:
