The kindergarten of the Dazaifu-Tenmangu shrine has its own sumo club, a rarity. They have 20 years connection to the heya. The director is head of its Kyushu koenkai.

Isegahama-beya stays at the Dazaifu-Tenmangu shrine for Kyushu - and the traditional sumo tournament for the kids with the rikishi took place

Local TV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4G_sM-QO9w - from this news page https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20171101-00000008-tncv-l40

 

Naruto-beya on the 31st visited a nursery school in Yamaga, Kumamoto. The oyakata each year since 2007 for Kyushu visited the city, because he got support from a local association.

Rikishi from Azumazeki-beya took part in a local matsuri on the 5th in Yame and did keiko with kids. The heya has a koenkai in the city and each year takes part in the festivities.

201711060001_000.jpgo

On the same day, Genkaihou (below) and Tsuyukusa from Otake-beya trained with the kids at a shrine in Kanzaki-city. Otake-beya rikishi get invited to come there for Kyushu for over 10 years now by local ex-Daitengo

Kansei (below) and Sadanogo from Sakaigawa-beya on the 8th came with the heya's Kimigahama (Houchiyama) to a kindergarten in Iizuka. The heya stayed nearby during a jungyo in the past.

On the same day, 4 rikishi from Takanohana-beya were at a school in Tagawa, where the heya is staying for Kyushu. Both events happened for the 2nd year in a row. The 4 were Takakeisho, Takatenshu (below), Takakiho and Takataisho.

Because of the scandal, rikishi did not take part in this special tournament this time

This is the long-time unique tournament event with ama-pro bouts.

Only Takayasu and Kagayaki were there to help with the baby dohyo-iri

Still about 500 old articles unchecked, but I don't think there will be more interesting stuff in there

Osh was the first time at a Kyushu location with his new heya and was giving something back to Karatsu-city. On the 27 he was at a local primary school together with Torakio to do sumo with the kids.

On the 28th Hanaregoma-oyakata (Tamanoshima) and 3 rikishi from Nishonoseki-beya visited a middle school in Hita-city to do sumo with primary and middle school kids. A representative of the kids after keiko gave to the rikishi for Nishonoseki-oyakata senbazuru they had made and a get-well message - he is still unconscious in hospital  http://www.oita-press.co.jp/1010000000/2017/11/29/JD0056388487

Takekaze visited a primary school in Akita - and as usual did arm sumo instead of the real thing

he also made his regular call to his local Akita paper - now in danger of dropping to juryo with a bad result next basho - and what will he do then? "I don't know till I experience the drop."

This is a serious question: do you think any rikishi have ever gone kyujo due to a mochi-pounding accident?

fun fact, i was.  at my kid's school, Kise beya sent some rikishi over to K International.  while pounding with the hammer, taking turns with a rikishi, pounding on alternate swings, our mallet made contact and my went straight into my forehead.  no stitches, just a butterfly, sort of embarrassing though

On the 14th, Aasanoyama visited his old schools in Toyama-city, Kureha primary and middle and Toyama commercial high school

at Kureha primary and middle schools, all students assembled for this, at each about 600

with sumo experience for the kids and question time: "Have you ever thought about quitting?" - "I want to quit right now" - and in earnest: "Without having done sumo, I wouldn't be this now. I feel gratitude towards my mentors at middle and high school."

Shikihide-beya on the 4th had an event with sumo for kids and afterwards setsubun season mochi pounding at the grounds of a primary school in Ryugasaki, where the heya is located. 1400 servings of chanko were distributed then at the matsuri, made from vegetables the local shop association had prepared the day before. http://mainichi.jp/articles/20180206/ddl/k08/040/467000c

Not just recent events are in the news

Futabayama in 1941 came to Iizuka primary school for the opening of the dohyo http://www.nishinippon.co.jp/sp/nnp/f_chikuhou/article/394311

AS20180214003066_commL.jpgo

AS20180214003069_comm.jpg

he was there with 2 others, one was 213cm tall Fudoiwa

201802150002_001.jpg

The doyho had been dismantled in 1988 and the visit was forgotten. Before last Kyushu basho, Musashigawa-beya rikishi came to the school, and somebody remembered the visit and wanted to show photos, if there were some. In the reference room, also a calligraphy by Futabayama was found, which he had given to the school.

It was restored and returned to the school - 剛健 gouken, vigour

Ikioi was with 2 tsukebito at a primary school in Wakasa town, Fukui. His grandmother lived there and the family came for visits in the summer vacations since he was a small kid. http://www.asahi.com/articles/photo/AS20180217001515.html

AS20180217001515_comm.jpg

a 1st year: "Ikioi was big. He moved as I pushed him, but I think he was going easy on me."

 

The Ishikawa pref. koenkai of Takenawa-oyakata made a photo panel of Tochinonada to donate to Noto-Kashima middle school in his hometown Nanao (he graduated from the predecessor school), for the recently revived dohyo. It shows him with the kesho mawashi he received in 1998 from his local newspaper. He had refused to have one made for quite a while and at last agreed to it, for the project to have this dohyo as the central sumo dojo in the city. It will hang there next to the portrait of sempai Masudayama (now Tokiwayama). http://www.hokkoku.co.jp/subpage/HT20180219401.htm

From dai-sempai Wajima they could actually use a yusho portrait, if they get one
