Haru jungyo 2017

Recommended Posts

Sendagawa is on contract signing tour again: On Apr. 4th a basho in Kato-city, Hyogo, for the event of 10 years since that city was formed. In 1983 a jungyo took place at a former location of that city. http://www.kobe-np.co.jp/news/hokuban/201609/0009541127.shtml

Apr. 15th in Takasaki, Gunma, for the 3rd year in a row. Sendagawa was in the city hall for a press conference. http://www.tokyo-np.co.jp/article/gunma/list/201611/CK2016110202000170.html

On Apr. 14th in Matsumoto, Nagano, close to Mitakeumi's hometown Agematsu, which makes him the star among the 4 locals (as the only sekitori). Ex-Hokutoriki (Tanigawa) was there for PR.

Tamanoi-oyakata (jungyo no. 2)  and the mayor of Komaki-city, Aichi, where the jungyo is on Apr. 3rd. The city mascot is rikishi type, Komakiyama - symbol for the city symbol, Mt. Komaki.

This one looks better but is said to actually be still weak. Komakiyama from Komaki-city in Aichi prefecture

A slightly different picture for this one: no oyakata but an ex-member of the Nichidai sumo club and friend of Hakuho as top of the organizing committee went to the mayor to announce a jungyo on Apr. 20th in Kashiwa-city, Chiba. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASJCY35PTJCYUDCB006.html

That's just next door for me a few days later, but unfortunately a bit too early to go to Japan then.

Nah, they will just slap on a yokozuna label on Kisenosato. They can only get an official tsuna picture with Kisenosato after the dohyo-iri soon.

Fujishima-oyakata was for PR in Hitachinomiya, Ibaraki: the first jungyo event in the prefecture with Kisenosato as yokozuna from there - as yokozuna on the new poster now - and no Kotoshogiku behind.

Sad trombone.

He may or may not be present there (I'm sure he will though): Kise will be kyujo for the Haru jungyo which starts on the 2nd - one month of medical treatment needed, but he may enter later. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170329/sum17032912340005-n1.html

Hitachiomiya is 2 weeks into the jungyo, on the 16th, I guess he'll want to do at least a dohyo-iri there and in the pref. capital Mito on the 21st.

Terunofuji (knee got worse after the bouts with Kise), Hakuho, Goeido and the other kyujo rikishi will also rest at first and are expected to join later. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/sumo/20170329-OYT1T50084.html

A dozen sekitori on the kyujo list for the start of the jungyo, most of them from the top flight. Hopefully the two Yokozuna will be able to join later even if only for dohyo-iri duty.

Makuuchi: Hakuho, Kisenosato, Goeido, Terunofuji, Takekaze, Arawashi, Kaisei, Tochinoshin, Kyokushuho, Chiyoo.
Juryo: Chiyootori, Fujiazuma.

Looks like Takanoiwa won the Ise shrine mini tournament, beating Harumafuji en route to the finals where he beat Kakuryu.

The jungyo started in Ise today. I guess all locations were sold out way before - now the people are flustered they won't see Kise - that's what they came for - and remaining tickets might remain.

Good to see Ichinojo there. I was afraid his back was acting up again when he got so erratic during the basho.

The exact contents of Kisenosato's medical diagnosis (previously just "left upper arm muscle injury") have been revealed now, presumably because of his absence from the jungyo tour: it's an injury to both his pectoralis major as well as the biceps muscle. Do note that this is the original diagnosis from his trip to the hospital after Day 12 of the basho, so the possible results of further checkups they intended to do are not reflected in that diagnosis. However, the press reports that he has restarted practice today, behind closed doors for now in respect of the ongoing jungyo.

Edit: Meh, I misread the date. (And it would have been Day 13 in any case, of course.) Actually, it's dated from Monday the 27th, so from a follow-up check right after senshuraku.

Freaky coincidence that Kotoshogiku also suffered a similar injury.

Who's been beating up Takakeisho?

I've always assumed (probably incorrectly) that those shoulder bruises are from butsukari, but that doesn't explain the nasty blue man-boob stripe!

Is Komakiyama a mountain or a cucumber or what?
