The time for encouragement parties, especially for rikishi from their universities.

The party in his hometown Kotohira by the koenkai to celebrate Amakaze's juryo yusho on the 28th was apparently also one for his - not yet official then - makuuchi promotion. Oguruma-oyakata: "In makuuchi there is no-one who does light (Amai) sumo, I will instruct him even more strictly." The koenkai-top: "I hope for him to bring back the name of yokozuna here in the end ." http://www.sankei.com/west/news/160830/wst1608300033-n1.html

Another pic in this article, written before banzuke publication it called Amakaze's promotion definite, an earlier article had named it very likely: http://www.shikoku-np.co.jp/kagawa_news/locality/article.aspx?id=20160829000163

Shikihide-beya needs all the support it can get. Ryugasaki, Ibaraki, as sashi-ire sends local food to the heya in their city,  2 times a year before Hatsu and Aki since 2012 for encouragement. The heya has 19 members, 7 new this year - with plenty of appetite. They use about 15kg of rice a day - and  the 60 kg they got thus only last 4 days. They also got 5kg each of pork and chicken meat and 40 special local croquettes. The city feels obliged to increase the sashi-ire next time. http://www.tokyo-np.co.jp/article/ibaraki/list/201609/CK2016090902000167.html

Not only Goeido, also makuuchi hopeful Ishiura had to rush to another event after the jungyo today: A party for him in Tokyo, with about 150 supporters: from the nation-wide Ishiura-club of all persons with that name, the Miyagino-beya koenkai etc. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1725305.html

Makuuchi hopeful Ishiura will have a parade at home in Tottori-city on the 31st (when the banzuke is out) to celebrate his success, together with his "shisho" Hakuho, who suggested a support event in Tottori to him, and with Hakuho's other private deshi in the car as well, return juryo Yamaguchi from the same Tottori Johoku high school.

More from Hakuho's parade event for Ishiura, Yamaguchi showed no enthusiasm

AS20161031002936_comm.jpgo It also was a support event to cheer up the Tottori region, which recently was struck by a quake. Before the start of the parade, Hakuho handed a message of support for the victims of the quake to the governor of Tottori.

Poor Ishiura, even his sisters are taller than him. At least he can beat them in sumo with a quick non-henka :D

Shodai was home as well and on the 29th had a party with about 150 members of his local support club (no koenkai), who thanked him for the great vital energy (genki) he brought to them via TV.

Daiamami (Sakamoto) had a party in his hometown to celebrate his juryo promotion. He also got a kesho-mawashi from his just created local koenkai, but it's not shown. "That I made it through makushita without make-koshi is fine, but it took me 6 basho and all just with 4 wins: I'm still naive." And 15 bouts? "As a new experience I'm looking forward to it, but also with anxiety. It's all about wether I can do my sumo, but kachi-koshi is the first priority. I want you to see me doing my best." http://amamishimbun.co.jp/index.php?QBlog-20161225-1

On the 18th next month he will have a parade in Ushiku, 1.5km from the station to the city hall.

On 3.2.2017 at 20:07, Akinomaki said:

His local koenkai each day gets about 10 new members lately - it has about 1050 now. And Kise goods have sell-outs one after the other.

The poster for Kisenosato's parade as pdf on the city's Kisenosato page (with a load of pics): http://www.city.ushiku.lg.jp/page/page001213.html

Kisenosato's local koenkai produced hand flags for the parade in Ushiku-city - they plan to distribute about 3000. 2 types can be downloaded as pdf on the same page as the poster, in A4 size - congratulations for yokozuna is the one below, the other for the yusho.

Personal koenkai are a privilege of sekitori, but the lower ranked rikishi can have a local koenkai as well, one that simply supports all local rikishi - and be it just 1. Sometimes at a locality this is done by a support group for all athletes of the area. A new one for Oyama-city, Tochigi was created today, to support the young Taka twins and Kanryu from Arashio-beya. One reason is likely that Takagenji is now one step away from sekitori.

This event had been planned before promotion: Kisenosato had a talk-show with celebration in a hotel in Mito-city today with about 700 attending. He also got 10 bales of rice and 1 ton of locally produced vegetables.

And another hole in Hakuho's schedule had been filled: leaving for Hawaii after the charity event left the 10th unexplained: he was at the party celebrating the creation last spring of his Shibata-city koenkai (Niigata). About 250 attended.
