For the 5th time, a Kyoto jungyo will take place, this year on Oct. 17th. Jungyo man Edagawa was at the press conference of the executive committee on the 28th.

Keiko with kids is under consideration, with the hope of the NSK allowing it again.

Such a nice poster! I wonder who the artist is. I'd like to have a print of that without the text.

The chopped off arms are pretty unattractive. I suppose it's one way of stopping the Mongolian Yokozuna.

The NSK seems to sense the danger of an upcoming slump after all the scandals and had PR riji Shibatayama himself do PR with a presentation at a press conference today in Takamatsu, for the jungyo basho there after 2 years again.

And now we get a Tokyo Oota basho, on Oct. 3rd - the first ever in Oota ward and the first simply Tokyo jungyo: The Shibuya jungyo or the events so far in special facilities in Tokyo have/had names to distract from the fact that it were Tokyo jungyo  - as part of the regional tour. On the 6th was the press conference by the promoter with Onoe-oyakata, responsible for that jungyo basho and head of the only heya in Oota ward. The promoter has so far organized the 3 adjacent Kawasaki basho.

Minamiashigara had been working since about half a year ago to get the jungyo. The promoter is an event project company that manages about 15 jungyo a year, Landmark Products.

Minamiashigara just like adjacent Oyama town in Shizuoka calls itself the home of Kintaro, and both have Kintaro festivals - and a sumo connection.

Jungyo men Edagawa and Shikihide yesterday were at the city hall for PR. http://www.tokyo-np.co.jp/article/kanagawa/list/201808/CK2018081002000164.html
