Otoi-ozumo is proud to have an uninterrupted 172 times history, this year after 4 years the pros were there again - from the Otoi-ozumo thread

The 170th Otoi ozumo will again be reduced to one day, Nov. 27th, and only have the adult competition. Of course again no rikishi from ozumo, thus no pro-ama bouts and no baby dohyo-iri. https://www.ehime-np.co.jp/article/news202110040041

Hitori-zumo 一人角力 on the 13th at the Ōyamazumi-shrine in Imabari, Ehime.

Same cast as every year since 1999, both Ichirikizan 一力山 and gyoji.

The present Ichirikizan hadn't done it for 3 years, yesterday he and the gyoji performed hitori-zumo again in the NHK hall in Shibuya at the regional performance arts festival, which took place after 4 years again

And today after 4 years again hitori-zumo at the Ōyamazumi-shrine in Imabari, Ehime.

Hitori-zumo today at the Ōyamazumi-shrine in Imabari, Ehime, as part of the rice planting festival, since more than 660 years ago - in full:

After the renewal of the custom 25 years ago, the duo is now 49 and 51 for the gyoji, both work for the city: Sadayuki Kan: "The sempai rikishi did it till 75. I'll gambarize as well" - gyoji Yoshitaka Tawa: "Always each single bout is a challenge. I'm concentrating"
