The traditional Miyagino-beya Nagahama training camp was from June 12th till the 16th - since 2014 each year. They were in Yamashina-cho, though the city also has a sumotown 長浜市相撲町 - but with the reading from the old world for sumo: sumai-cho

the pics of Hakuho and Enho are known from other threads

Azumazeki-beya switched to the next training camp location today, till the 18th in Oguni town, Yamagata, with 8 rikishi, using the dohyo of a local company. Since 15 years ago they are there each summer, due to the former oyakata being a friend of a local ex-rikishi.

Notes from Isegahama training camp in Yahiko Niigata (Day 2)

-No active sekitori on hand. Takarafuji and Terutsuyoshi were absent due to jungyo, but I was told Teru will be here tomorrow, the final day of the camp. 

-Keiko participants were mainly younger, lower-ranked rikishi. Despite the heya having fallen on hard times in the last couple years, an enthusiastic standing-room-only crowd braved the rain to come watch.

-Newly retired Aminishiki was there, but he mainly stretched at the foot of the dohyo and then lent his chest for some light butsukari-geiko at the end.

-Former Makuuchi Homarefuji was there, actively coaching and administering some brutal tough love to young stablemate Sakurafuji at the end. Otherwise no training.

-Speaking of Sakurafuji, he has a great body frame, trains as hard as anyone, and always looks impressive in practice. I'm surprised he is still struggling at Jonidan.

-Was hoping to get a good look at new upper-Makushita entrants Midorifuji and Nishikifuji, but they too were absent.

-Lastly, Terunofuji was there, but activity was limited to his own conditioning below the dohyo. He appeared in good spirits, joking with the crowd and posing for pictures. He's still a giant of a man, but nowhere near the physical specimen he was when he was an Ozeki. It was a bit sad to see him in a dark mawashi with two huge knee braces. Hopefully he can overcome his physical woes and at least make it back to sekitori.

Notes from Isegahama training camp in Yahiko Niigata (Day 3)

-Only six rikishi on hand for the final day (the announcer said that about half the heya were nursing injuries), but three of them were Aminishiki, Takarafuji, and Terutsuyoshi. 

-Among the juniors, Sakurafuji impressed again. If determination and effort count for anything, the kid's got a bright future.

-Each time I see him up close, I am reminded that Takarafuji is a towering rock solid mountain of a man. 

-Taka and Terutsuyoshi had about a dozen matches, and they were pretty even. I gave a slight edge to Teru in terms of performance.

-I first "discovered" Terutsuyoshi at the Niigata camp three years ago, when he was still in Makushita, and have been singing his praises on this forum ever since. Even back then his talent was obvious; all he lacked was size and experience. Since then, he has accumulated plenty of experience, but he has also gained noticeable size & strength. He has a real "sumo body" now, and I expect him to continue grinding his way slowly up the bansuke.

Chiganoura-beya gets a new keiko ground at its Kyushu location, the Sasaguri town community center. The indoor training ground will be a 1min. walk away, same size as in the heya in Tokyo. Last year they used the outdoor dohyo with roof at a shrine farther away, where rain and wind were a problem. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20191004/sum19100405010002-n1.html

Takasago-beya from the 11th till the 14th had a training camp in Kochi city, for the 5th (or 7th in the news with video) time in all, with 14 rikishi, 3 of them like the oyakata from Kochi prefecture. http://www.kochinews.co.jp/article/315808/

One of them is Asanojo, who will become 2nd oldest ever new to makushita next basho o

There's a short news video about this camp here; Takasago-oyakata was presented with a skipjack tuna and some shinkonashi pears following the end of keiko. Asanojo also talks about enjoying the food more in Kochi, and will gambarize for kachi-koshi on his Makushita debut next month.

the heya posts detailed pics of the dohyo preparation on Twitter - no able yobidashi there to help: Hiroshi has only just started to learn the trade - and maybe is at the jungyo anyway
