A shot with the mayor Fumiko Hayashi and presidents of the local promoters, from Kanagawa TV and from TOWNNEWS-SHA CO., LTD. The other promoter is the event project company that manages about 15 jungyo a year, Landmark Products. The oyakata were active at the last Yohohama arena basho. http://www.townnews.co.jp/0103/2018/11/08/456271.html

Another extended period with the sekitori traveling extensively and playing showbiz and hype games when they should be home at their heya resting, recovering and training to refine their offensive and defensive techniques.  The result is a lot of sloppy, pushme-pullyou honbasho activity by damaged rikishi. :-(

For the Fujisawa jungyo the next day, several local and Kanagawa cooperatives and welfare associations will donate about 200 tickets to give kids, disabled and old aged persons from 6 cities and one town in the prefecture the chance to attend the jungyo. http://www.townnews.co.jp/0601/2019/02/15/469857.html

19 hours ago, Rainoyama said:

Hakuho performed a dohyo iri at the Ise Grand Shrine today. The injury is confirmed to be a ruptured muscle in the upper part of the right arm (右腕筋断裂). Apparently it shouldn't affect his movements too much and he should be able to do tsuppari or grab a mawashi but he said himself that he feels disconfort when he contracts the arm.  Surgery was an option but "It would take too much time" he said. He plans to rest and wait for the injury to heal on its own. He was out of the Makuuchi tournament held today.

I'm surprised to see Takayasu there, he didn't seem in a bad shape during the tournament. Back pains like Ichinojo ?

The jungyo is in Nara and Gojo today (April 1rst) as the name of the new era 「令和」"Reiwa" has just been announced.
"When something has roundness, it's easier to caligraph" explained Tate Gyoji Shikimori Inosuke who gave his best shot at writting 令和 just after the announcement.
"「令」has a nice and sharp shape so I was nervous. 「和」is a Kanji that has meaning for me, before I became Shikimori Kandayu in 2012 I was 木村 和一郎 and the name of my daughter is 和子. I thought maybe it's better if I am the one chosen to write it so I volunteered. (...) I was nervous when I wrote the 令 but I guess I relaxed a bit when I wrote the 和" said the Gyoji with a bitter-sweet smile.
His caligraphed 令和 was hanged down in the gymnasium after the Makuuchi and Yokozuna dohyo iri.
