Otoi-ozumo

Recommended Posts

It deserves a thread of its own - the last weeks had many news of the event and repairs of the Otoi-hall (which looks like a mini-kokugikan) - I'll post a digest of that later, and today the local TV streamed the whole day to YT, and the 9h42m, 17 961MB video is available now

At 6h the first pro appears -  Tamanoryu - he lost

Ikioi interview at 6h42m

the pro-ama tournament starts at 7h2m, 8h6m Ikioi appears on the dohyo, first with baby dohyo-iri, then sumo for kids, 9h5m the pro-ama kore yori sanyaku with komusubi: Naya (vs. Sumiki) and sekiwake: Hoshoryu (both won) - the final ozeki bout was only with amateurs

At the 160year old traditional Otoi-Ōzumō on the 26th, 27th in Nomura-cho, Seiyo city, Ehime pref., sekitori etc. took part: local Kataonami-oyakata; Shohozan and Goeido at a baby dohyo-iri.

This is the long-time unique tournament event with ama-pro bouts.

The dohyo for Otoi-ozumo is prepared at another location, the Nomura public hall - to be ready on the 20th. The event is 1 day only this year, on Nov 27th, free entry. Invited is Ikioi.

the repairs in the Otoi hall will take some more time

from the past http://www.jprime.jp/articles/-/13541

And for the pro-ama bouts, Naya and Hoshoryu plan to be there -  and they might fight again their opponent at last year's kokutai final and sf, local Sumiki. http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/article?a=20181016-00013541-jprime-ent&p=3

Kataonami-oyakata on the 2nd was on a visit to his hometown Nomura in now Seiyo-city, Ehime, where 5 people had died due to floods from the torrential rain. He met with the mayor, went to a shelter to cheer up the locals and to the Otoi hall. Nomura is famous for the Otoi-ozumo event in November, where the pros meet amateurs - (ex-)Tamakasuga always was a regular guest. The hall with the dohyo had been nearly filled up to the ceiling with water. Now it's a mess and mushrooms grow out of the straw bales of the dohyo.

Otoi-ozumo had started in 1852 after 4 villages had burned down completely, to pray for protection from fire - this time a flood disaster. It may be difficult to get the hall ready again till November, but even if the location has to be changed, they want to somehow have the event this year as well - and Kataonami wants to help any way he can. http://mainichi.jp/articles/20180803/k00/00m/050/106000c

The sumo parody from 6h43 to 6h57 in the video is quite entertaining, although not performed (it seems) by pro rikishi

And they have (never used) shikona - and amateur pro-styled yobidashi and gyoji - a Shikimori Kintaro, who also does the main bouts later.

The first minute is hidden by an interview with Ikioi at 6h42m

At 6h the first pro appears -  Tamanoryu - he lost - his oyakata is THE local: Tamakasuga

the proper pro-ama bouts starts at 7h2m - 7 rikishi, Tokio, Tamanoryu, Tamakongo, Hoshoryu, Naya, later Akinoyama and Shonannoumi

Naya

8h6m Ikioi appears on the dohyo, introduced, sings a jinku, baby dohyo-iri, sumo for kids

9h5m the pro-ama kore yori sanyaku with Naya in the komusubi bout (vs. Sumiki) and the sekiwake bout with Hoshoryu - both won - the final ozeki bout was only with amateurs

Both participants get kensho before the bout

they also had a dohyo matsuri with yobidashi parade on the 25th

“the proper pro-ama bouts ...”

He’s been Harumafuji for ages, and besides, no amount of lobbying or holding bouts in support of his cause is going to bring him back. He’s gone. Time to let go.

The 168th Otoi-ozumo started today, this year again for 2 days. Naya was once more in the pro-ama bouts, Hoshoryu as sekitori now helped at the baby dohyo-iri, as did Tamawashi. Next year the repairs of the damaged Otoi hall should be complete and it is planned to be have the event take place there again.

Tamawashi also did keiko with kids - that's not an NSK event and therefore it's allowed  o

Pro-ama-bouts from day 1 - pros on the east, amateurs on the west, in sets of 5, going for 5 wins in a row, the loser gets replaced by one from his side. Shobushi, Sumanoumi, Akatsuki, Gorikiyama ... Suzuki, Tamakongo and Fukuyama joined to replace others.

In the starting middle 5 the amateurs smashed the pros. Then the special middle 5 - it took too long and was interrupted with Suzuki in the lead. Then the big 5 -  Bushozan won it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48DiKcEe_K4

 

Finally the extra big 5, with Naya and Shonannoumi joining - Shonannoumi won the thing on the 2nd attempt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arNMoKUiAak

 

Otoi taiko is rather the usual and not like the ozumo taiko by the yobidashi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ASDRWHEwsA

Pro-Ama bouts from day 2 - basically the same guys, I spotted Ebisumaru additionally from the announcements

From middle to big 5 - all 3 times the amateurs on top https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZG4O2ordXA

First amateurs only,  then the special big 5, where Naya and Shonannoumi replace 2 others. Naya already won it at once to get the bunch of kensho and a bale of rice, no chance for Shonannoumi. Finally the sanyaku of otoi ozumo, where both opponents get kensho before the bout, the amateurs are on the east now, higher. Shonannoumi losing to their komusubi Sumiki, Naya to the sekiwake, the last bout was with the 2 amateur ozeki: stopped right after the start, to have the event end with an azukari - till next year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qieSgEbPD_o&t=13m7s

The 169th Otoi-ozumo took place yesterday, reduced to 1 day, only 2 hours, with only local adults taking part. No rikishi from ozumo, thus no pro-ama bouts and no baby dohyo-iri. No spectators either. The severely flood-damaged Otoi hall had been repaired, but this year a different catastrophe endangered the traditional tournament. Nonetheless it was held, to continue the tradition.

The local TV had again a 12h live stream - the video is 12 hours of just an announcement screen of when the stream should start.

What a shame that the video from the first post is gone now. Goes to show that Youtube is not an archive, one has to assume that anything posted there will eventually vanish.
