For the first time, the juryo tournament etc. before the TV coverage will be broadcast live on the site: http://www.fujitv.co.jp/events/grandsumo/

From 11:30 to 16:00h JST, via 3 VR cameras http://av.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1042352.html

I hope it won't be blocked outside of Japan.

actually it is the official English title of this

Edit: a basho is no/has no tournament - except sometimes for yusho ketteisen

They'd given thought to "Pretty Darn Good Sumo Tournament" but decided it wasn't as catchy.

Is the German interpretation of the word tournament the same as the Japanese one, i.e. a knockout style competition?

In English I think it's perfectly fine to call a straight league style competition like a sumo honbasho a tournament. 

No, in German I have the same problem to tell people about a basho in one word if I don't use the equivalent for tournament. I was only referring to the Japanese use.

Here we have the funny situation that tournament is both a possible translation of ordinary Japanese and the "translation" of the Japanese katakana word "tournament", taken from English with just that one strict meaning.

The first real dohyo-iri of Kisenosato to come - the one at the Meiji shrine and those types are not on a dohyo and thus in correct term dezu-iri.

The broadcast is a YouTube stream and easy to record - but no video will remain on Fuji TV live

Afterwards to watch on TV - the fixed onscreen message is quite boring - the whole thing looks better by scrolling it out of the screen with the <^> camera control

Kakuyu did a doyho-iri and started in round 2, Harumafuji really is injured.

Chiyoo was kyujo - Osunaarashi looked like he should have been, too.

 

Edit: The recording looks quite funny.

Yep, TV coverage is starting now, so Youtube is offline now.

I was watching the TV coverage earlier and there was an Endo documentary covering his injuries. I don't speak Japanese, but it seemed like Mitakeumi and Shodai at one point were talking about how motivated they were to beat Endo for the kensho.

Interesting finals showdown between Kisenosato and Takanoiwa. Kise proving he is the yokozuna that everybody wants him to be so far.

It seems like the energy level seems to be less than in the basho.

Nobody wants to get injured unnecessarily in a tournament that does not count. Not to frown on the approximately 25000 US prize, but still..

Very nice job for Kisenosato, although it looks like he's put on a bit of weight.

Also, Robocop still has it

Thank you for this video, but why did he fight? Was it just for entertainment or do they have some kind of "senior division" at those tournaments?

Those tournaments (but not all of the 1 or 2 day ones) in the past had 3 OB bouts by younger and older oyakata as a special attraction, and in recent years they have revived that.

Kise dohyo-iri was much better this time but I think that's due to not having to do it on stone. At the shrine is very cool but they can't really stamp or slide as they do on the dohyo.

It was so much better that I think he must've been practising on the QT.
