On the 2nd at 10h in the morning, advance sales for the Hatsu basho start. Sales for the winter jungyo that starts on the 3rd have already gone down due to the ongoing scandal - we'll see what it does to basho sales.

Maybe, instead of being sold out in an hour and a half, they'll be sold out in two hours this time.

This time it took till 14:30h for all tickets to get sold out - from 1.5h for Natsu to 4.5h now (Aki had just 50min.). https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201712020000418.html

Is it actually sold out? On the ticket Oosumo site, if you click on "view available seats" it shows you a chart full of X's, indicating all dates are sold out. But if you select "Arena seats- find tickets" and search by each "performance date", there are still lots of seats available for many dates.  Anybody know what the actual situation is? I scored tickets for 4 days and I'm looking forward to attending my second basho.

And dohyo-making has started (with demolition of the old) - quite a while since the NSK posted some pics on Twitter

A new car after 5 years for the yusho parade - it had principally been an Audi, now the biggest Mercedes of this type (S550 cabriolet) will be leased for a day - it would cost 20 million yen to buy it. Used 5 times a year - only in Nagoya it has to be a Toyota.

Shibatayama last had this experience for his yusho 30 years ago (Haru) - PR top Kasugano maybe had none yet (as attendant)

A new location for the lactation room in the kokugikan - it had been in the sumo clinic so far

final touch for the doyho preparation

and we had happy PR events as well - the lesson at the school today was by ex-Asasekiryu (Nishikijima) - also as PR for his intai-zumo next month - with him was Kimura Asanosuke, gyoji of Takasago-beya

PR for the basho pamphlet (60 pages, with English explanations) by new sanyaku Takakeisho

The chanko this basho is from Isenoumi-beya - what Ikioi and Nishikigi eat. The heya's manager Asasaka shows the preparation

That's actually a free service sponsored by Instagram. You have to post a photo to the NSK Instagram and get it as an original card in sumo design at the new machine as it appears on the screen. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASL1G4H91L1GUTQP00R.html

MyJetSetLife posted a video of it

Mainichi shimbun as usual sells the small yusho portrait of Hakuho's 40th yusho for 9200 yen - recent older yusho portraits can be ordered as well http://mainichi.jp/articles/20180122/ddm/035/050/119000c

^Does he always pose with his arms like that? Looks pretty weird… I know some years ago he said he couldn’t stretch out his arms anymore because of broken bone fragments in his elbows or something.
