Just like last year's Aki jungyo, the 2017 edition will have 22 events. And with the winter jungyo still to come, deputy jungyo director Tamanoi-oyakata (former Ozeki Tochiazuma) says that there will be over 70 jungyo days in total for the year, the same as 2016.

Before everyone sets off on the jungyo, another "Ozumo Beyond 2020" event will take place at the Kokugikan on October 4th. No further details are available yet about what it will feature this time. Another sandangamae with Kisenosato and Hakuho would be nice! While not officially part of the jungyo, it is shown on the handwritten schedule shown below.
