Dohyo matsuri and Ichinojo's keiko start at Minato-beya

Articles name 300 to 500 to have watched - usually asageiko is free to watch, but here the people have to pay the 100 yen entry fee to the racecourse grounds.

Seems like a good business model for other commercial sports to have a sumo-beya on the premises: on the 2nd day for the end of keiko at 11a.m., 1455 people had paid the 100yen to enter the keiba grounds, and on the end of the day it were 2954, 487 more than on the day before. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20190228/sum19022805010004-n1.html

(maybe that's mainly the Kise effect though)

Araiso had a talk-show at the heya's racecourse. About the eternal bouts with Takayasu: in the past he had trained for himself, but now he only thinks of how to help Takayasu - with the result that his own sumo gets better and better.

Miyagino-beya will stay at the Toyota sports center for the Nagoya-basho - the only basho for which the yusho parade is in a Toyota. Company president Toyota is a friend of Hakuho. The number of rikishi in the heya has grown (by an extra size one) and the former lodgings have become too small. They will  use the dohyo of the corporate club.

The new Fuji TV Live News (it!) - replacing FNN PRIME News (evening) in the very first edition had a report on Arashio-beya in Osaka, with the focus on the failure of Kotokuzan to reach sekitori. 6:25-6:41h: http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc429062/
