Hokutoo for the first time did a yumitori ceremony - at the jungyo today in his home prefecture Fukushima - as tsukebito for which yokozuna?

None, he's serving as Ikioi's tsukebito on this jungyo. I don't know if that's a permanent arrangement. Maybe Ikioi likes to have a fellow tall rikishi for his keiko warm-up routine.

Shohoryu did the yumitori-shiki at the jungyo in Hakodate - he's a tsukebito of Kakuryu. At the 20 days of the jungyo till then, the task was shared equally between him and Hakuho's tsukebito Kasugaryu, who is the main performer since the Haru basho last year, and lately without a regular replacement. For the jungyo favorite shokkiri, the jungyo top took care to have a 3rd man as replacement, but the yumitori rikishi had none for a while. At the Haru jungyo in April, jungyo no 2. Hanakago asked Shohoryu if he can do it. At that jungyo he performed 3 times, but thought it "A total disaster". This time he practiced in between tsukebito duties, and maybe he'll get 3 days to perform at the Aki basho next.

Hanakago names as a point for selecting a yumitori rikishi: "Does he have courage or not", and said he decided on Shohoryu by a feeling. He's makushita and made it up there with a small stature of 170cm, so he must have some.

Looks like Shohoryu will take over the yumitori-shiki from Day 3 - apparently he was meant to do it from the start, but due to a communication breakdown the torikumi-hyo for the first two days were printed with Kasugaryu's name.

Shohoryu is the first yumitori-shiki performer born in the Heisei era. At 23 years, 3 months and 2 days, he is the youngest since 1992 Aki, when Takamiwaka made his debut at 22 years, 9 months, 1 day.

With Terunofuji’s promotion and Kakuryu’s retirement, will we see the return of Satonofuji or a new performer from the Isegahama heya?
