Takanohana-heya has it's camp in Tagawa, Fukuoka. Since 2011 they stay for Kyushu at the sumo chaya (tea house) "Takanohana", which had friendly relations already with Takanohana the father.
Takanohana calls it his 2nd hometown, having been on visits there since early childhood.
Asa-geiko starts at around 5:30 a.m. and goes on for about 3 hours. Watching it is free for all.

Kasugayama-beya received 500kg of new rice from a PR group for rice from Saga, where the heya stays. Plus 30kg of dry mochi.
With 22 rikishi eating about 15kg a day of it, it lasts just a month.
The oyakata: "We have a very delicious gift. Rice is white, to have it lead to shiro-boshi (white stars=wins) all have to focus on it, aiming for kachi-koshi of all of us in Kyushu."

The traditional dohyo-matsuri took place at the Osaka Sumiyoshi-taisha, where Tatsunami-beya stays for the Haru-basho. This one done by real Shinto priests, with the rikishi and the oyakata watching.

As a PR event, the story will likely be covered quite well - start of keiko http://www.sankei.com/sports/news/160301/spo1603010014-n1.html

Tomatoes know that some people won't eat them raw, so they disguise themselves as other types of red fruit, like say, strawberries.

Tatsunami-beya since 2007 is at the Sumiyoshi-taisha for Osaka. After keiko on the final day since 2012 they have a dohyo-matsuri with a kami-okuri ceremony like the one that concludes the basho. There the new recruits toss a gyoji into the air, to send the gods back up that were called to the dohyo at the dohyo matsuri. Here the local Shinto priest was tossed by the heya's rikishi. http://www.nnn.co.jp/dainichi/news/160328/20160328025.html

Azumazeki-beya for the 13th year is in Oguni-town, Yamagata. Ex-Fujizakura (former Nakamura-oyakata, for a short while in Azumazeki-beya) and Furiwake are supervising the training of 10 rikishi - open to the public (since it's in public). Azumazeki-oyakata is at the jungyo. http://yamagata-np.jp/news/201608/16/kj_2016081600318.php
