PR for Hatsu 2019

Recommended Posts

After nobody particular showing up on the Kyushu poster (as if they knew that the top 4 would go kyujo), the one for Hatsu promises to have the top 3 at the start. The NSK published it on the 22nd, ticket sales start Dec. 8th. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2018/11/22/kiji/20181122s00005000208000c.html

The Oh!sumo exhibition at the Ikebukuro Sunshine city had Mitakeumi as guest today. Tomorrow is his birthday - he got the cake early and fed it to (small) fans

the other had day a talk-show with 3 oyakata, who are more or less related to the exhibition - Asakayama (Kaio), Kokonoe (Chiyotaikai) and Sendagawa (Touki)

The talk show guests at the Oh!sumo exhibition today were Kotoshogiku and Toyonoshima - tomorrow is the last day of the event.

Toyonoshima: "This year I want get to makuuchi and do sumo with Kotoshogiku" - who rather wants to avoid staying that low and promises: "to be on the dohyo for 90 days and get to fight the upper banzuke"

On the 2nd, Onosho and a tsukebito were guests at the exhibition and did some mochi pounding - this looks like one of the free extra events in front of the entrance to the actual exhibition

 

there were year end/start bouts with rikishi on the Tokyo SkyTree http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q95oM1rwHoI

The chanko in the kokugikan at the Hatsu basho will be from Michinoku-beya - heya chanko-ban Kirimaru is preparing it for the PR. Chanko Kirishima is just around the corner - this one will be an arrangement of the "Blend Chanko" from the secret menu

In addition to the sumo, also a good reason to visit the Hatsu basho. (Signofapproval...)
