Shikihide-beya today received food donations from their locals in Ryugasaki - they get it 2 times per year.

This time 150 Ryugasaki croquettes, 60kg of rice, some vegetables of the season, 18kg of meet, pork and chicken

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.

Kagayaki yesterday on the free day of the jungyo did PR for local Ishikawa 石川 pref. new rice brand: hyakuman(1million)goku(穀grain, -goku 石 is the counter for rice harvest, to indicate the fief of a feudal lord - Kanazawa was the hyakumangoku domain). This rice is used in the bento newly sold in the hokuriku-shinkansen, with "Kagayaki" as the fastest and shikona origin for Kagayaki

His local Ishikawa and the national JA on the 7th gave Kagayaki 105kg of the new local hyakumangoku rice as a present. The other local Endo gets 105kg as well later. http://www.chunichi.co.jp/article/ishikawa/20190108/CK2019010802000043.html

Wakatakamoto looking a bit pensive. Perhaps having his two younger brothers in juryo will give him a final push to make the transition to juryo himself.

- in a local NNN video already gone, Shikimori Kiichiro showed his gorgeous new gunbai - download was without sound, I guess he mainly said thanks

Shikimori Kiichiro will receive a spectacular new gunbai to mark his Makuuchi promotion on the latest banzuke, a Wajima-nuri lacquer with a golden dragon on one side, and a depiction of Akafuji (when Mount Fuji appears red in early morning sunlight) on the other. The gunbai is a gift from Endo's hometown koenkai (both are in Oitekaze-beya)

 

Today Myogiryu had one in Himeji, in his home pref. Hyogo, by his local koenkai. http://www.kobe-np.co.jp/news/sports/201902/0012091658.shtml

Enho on the 1st had the party to celebrate makuuchi promotion, with about 300 guests -  from Hakuho he got an orange obi. "I had a makekoshi (from 7-2), but I obtained  something bigger than kachikoshi. Without forgetting this frustration, I want to gambarize to turn it into power."

Dewanoumi-beya held a small gathering during the Natsu basho to celebrate the kanreki, 60th birthday, of sewanin Fukuryudake. (Doesn't exactly belong here but I wanted to post it somewhere, we don't get a lot of coverage of these hard-working men.)

And a picture of the attendees. The only one I don't recognise is the man in the light blue shirt, perhaps the heya manager?
