On Dec. 4th a basho will take place in/on Goto-city/islands, Nagasaki, after 16 years again. Local Tokitsukaze-oyakata (Tokitsuumi) was there for PR. http://www.nagasaki-np.co.jp/news/kennaitopix/2017/08/18091110052195.shtml

On Dec 11th the KitaKyushu basho, after 4 years again, sponsored by the (quite new) Kitakyushu entertainment promotion society. Jungyo man Sendagawa went with representatives of the society to the city hall for PR http://mainichi.jp/articles/20170824/ddl/k40/050/363000c

On the 8th the Miyazaki basho, celebrating 70 years since creating the Miyazaki-city tourist association (thus maybe the promoter). Jungyo man Edagawa was at the city hall. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/local/miyazaki/news/20170829-OYTNT50258.html

The full schedule for the final jungyo of 2017 has been released. Eight events take place around Japan's southern island of Kyushu, before the sumo year comes to an end with a trip to Okinawa for a couple of two-day events.

By my count, that makes 78 jungyo days in total this year.

December 3rd - Omura, Nagasaki
December 4th - Goto, Nagasaki
December 6th - Nogata, Fukuoka
December 7th - Usa, Oita
December 8th - Miyazaki, Miyazaki
December 9th - Kumamoto, Kumamoto
December 10th - Kagoshima, Kagoshima
December 11th - Kitakyushu, Fukuoka
December 13th/14th - Miyakojima, Okinawa
December 16th/17th - Ginowan, Okinawa

The schedule for the coming year sould be adjusted to leave sufficient time for rest and recuperation. Has there ever been a more injury-riddled basho than Wacky Aki?

Ura from his father's side has Okinawan roots

Ura was for jungyo PR in Okinawa lately - his roots likely were one reason for that and surely it was in the news in Okinawa then

And the CM for the Okinawa jungyo has Ura doing the PR - but very likely he will not be anywhere near the dohyo there

PR on the 6th at the Kagoshima city hall by Harumafuji, Terunofuji and Isegahama-oyakata for the jungyo there on Dec. 10th

Shodai just before the basho visited the mayor of his hometown Kumamoto and promised a good performance - and also did PR for the Kumamoto fuyu jungyo on Dec. 9th.

The winter Jungyo starts tomorrow at Oomura, amid worries of the Harumafuji affair influence on ticket sales. The promoters are optimistic. "We've sold 80 percent of the tickets and we have had phone calls today as well. It doesn't look like there was any influence at all," said one such promoter.

Kasugano temporary winter jungyo manager has hinted that a set of rules for the rikishi to follow during the jungyo will be posted soon. No going out, drinking limitations, and a curfew are on the agenda. This includes Oyakata as well. He wants to see to it that no more problems will arise outside the dohyo. Asked about this, he replied: "We've got to do something about that. And a curfew. I'm thinking this time around, no drinking sake for me." In the meantime, Deputy Jungyo man Tamanoi oyakata has spoken to the rikishi and given his own instructions. "It's been a while since I've been on a jungyo, so I'd like to see if the current way of doing it is the right way. It has changed by 180 degrees since I was active so it's a great opportunity for me to see what's going on," added Kasugano Oyakata.

 

Map of the Jungyo- 10 places, 12 days, Kyushu and Okinawa- the "Gourmet trail", full of local delicacies.

On posters that already had been printed, Harumafuji is still present - Omura tomorrow e.g.

20171201s00005000425000p_view.jpg

But otherwise they changed the design to remove him from the picture

article links, including for what Kintamayama posted above are on the right of the pics

Asanoyama is kyujo - I haven't seen a complete kyujo list yet, maybe the info is hidden somewhere in the 1000-1500 articles I haven't checked yet

Departure to the jungyo from Fukuoka city today. Not participating are Kisenosato and Takanoiwa - and of course Takanohana, but there is still no kyujo list - Chiyonokuni in the wheelchair on day 15 makes it unlikely he'll be there, Asanoyama's kyujo was reported from his local paper, and of the many kyujo rikishi of the basho, surely most will be kyujo now as well, but Kakuryu will be there. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/sumo/20171202-OYT1T50080.html

Kasugano jungyo chief has declared that no problems will be tolerated, big or small. He called a meeting before the start of morning training, speaking to all sekitori, yobidashi and gyoji. He emphasized the need to stay out of trouble outside of the dohyo and to train diligently and seriously on the dohyo. "If you see any funny stuff happening please notify the Oyakata in charge  immediately. It's a jungyo and people will be noticing how you dress and how you behave so please be careful!" he said. A memo was posted at the entrance to the shitakubeya - "We will not tolerate any erratic behavior!" it said. Everyone will be taking the buses this time. "Get on the bus. Anything else will not be tolerated!" said another memo.

I don't know if this strict regimen is the cleverest thing to do. This collective punishment is more of a recipe for building up tensions which will eventually vent. 

Edit: No curfew (as announced) softens this a lot.

Of the rikshi kyujo at the basho, only from Takanoiwa no medical certificate was presented for going kyujo also at the jungyo. http://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXMZO2420489003122017CC1000/

Several jungyo pages (listed here: http://www.sumo.or.jp/Jungyo/schedule/) still show Harumafuji, some have him still on the poster, but no longer on the page

No curfew, just so you know. On Takanoiwa being the only kyujo rikishi not sending in a certificate of health, Deputy Jungyo Chief Tamanoi Oyakata said: "The situation is what it is. I don't know what the heck is going on.."

Kakuryuu and Hakuhou are participating in the jungyo, but have not had any bouts so far. Today they did some basic shiko and suriashi movements dohyo-side. Kakuryuu seems to have overcome his back problems that caused his latest kyujos.

The mass media showed up in masses for the jungyo and are rather disruptive, reports the mass media itself. Scores of TV shows are sending in cameramen and journalists to try to find some scandal, and even rikishi going out to the supermarket for food are filmed and labeled "rule-breakers" as everyone was asked not to leave the premises after dark. The local promoters are worried that this is bothersome to potential customers. "It's not as if they're here to cover the actual sumo or anything.." said one of them. They are even showing up uninvited at some promoters' houses trying to interview them.  So yesterday in Noogata, for the first time in 26 years, no TV crews were allowed inside the hall. "It's the local promoters' decision. The Kyokai gives all rights of decision to promoters during jungyos, so regarding the media, it's their call," said Nishiiwa Oyakata, head of this part of the jungyo.
