What exactly is Harumafuji's status given that he appeared at Izumo Taisha with the non-disgraced Isegahama sekitori?  I seem to recall that when Asashoryu was forced to retire, his Setsubun appearance was cancelled.

I guess it is up to each festival organiser?

the Ajigawa/Isegahama heya has close ties with this particular shrine, as Akinomaki has repeatedly reported.

At the Sayada shrine in Kumagaya, Daishozen, Tobizaru and Daiamami from Oitekaze-beya were the guests o


and they also posed for a photo



Goeido was also at a Narita-san temple - but home in Neyagawa


The wide shows focus on Taka and last year's Ryujin souguusha event

Hakuho was next to Takanoiwa there - this year all not from Takanohana-beya have refused to come

On 2/4/2017 at 17:50, Akinomaki said:

Today Hakuho was at the Ryujinsogusha in Uji-city, Kyoto, for more action

Taka, his sekitori and the young twins, Oshima, Endo and Asahisho were also there

Their page now shows the pics from last year平成30年節分祭お得情報/


again only the top of the head of Takanoiwa is visible


another pic from  Kotoshogiku at the Tsubaki Grand shrine in Suzuka - about 300 visitors


and another from Takayasu at the Kasama Inari shrine - with Tagonoura-oyakata


Takayasu today was home in Tsuchiura at the Houshaku temple - again with Tagonoura-oyakata and Arawashi

video on the local NHK news page (likely only today):

maybe the video can be accessed a little longer directly: youtube-dl rtmp://

Similarly, a video with Hokutofuji in Hiraizumi (Iwate) at the Chusonji
