But is it edible or is it a cushion in disguise?

Yes guys, does anybody know what it really is?  It does look like a giant macaron ...

It is a giant macaron!! Part of the France-Japan friendship prize I believe, guessing it's a styrofoam replica representing a certain amount of regular macarons (made by Pierre Hermé)... But Orion or John might know more about it!??

And just because it's a great thread I'll link it here again, explanation on the various prizes presented (from a few years back...)

I would prefer to imagine that Hakuho has an entire room in his house furnished with zabuton in the shape of macarons.

Toyonoshima doing some speed skating training. Unfortunately I am not able to embed the video, neither from Twitter nor from his blog. If someone knows how or if that`s possible I would be delighted to learn :-)

Maybe the wrong place for this question so pardon me in advance, but now that Toyonoshima got demoted beyond Juryo, does he have to move in to the heya with the other low ranked rikishi, again?

Will Kisenosato get a ride upgrade for all the basho for the rest of his life?

The Kinboshi comedian duo made a song to enable people to name a few rikishi

on their channel they also have one presenting (trivia of) all makuuchi (at the Hatsu basho)

They deleted both old videos, the makuuchi song is in a new(er) version (Kyushu-basho, with something that may be trivia or just a joke about each rikishi) on the kinboshi channel:

the song in front of each sumo-beya is still there, but from 2.5years ago - may vanish later as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDKBIOgV9w8

I really liked that video. It had a catchy tune, pictures of rikishi having fun (especially Osunaarashi) and the complete list of the tme. Pity I hadn't grabbed and saved it.

I like this one too...
