Araiso-oyakata (former Maegashira Tamaasuka) held his danpatsu-shiki in the Kokugikan yesterday. Quite a lot of pictures so give it a minute for everything to load. If you prefer a briefer overview, Akinomaki posted the press pictures here (thanks!).


Greeting guests outside before the danpatsu-shiki begins. [2]

While this wasn't a full intai-zumo, there was a shokkiri performance to keep the guests entertained. Kataonami-beya's Tamakongo took part alongside regular performer Shobushi, with the assistance of gyoji Kimura Takanosuke.
