The gomen fuda 御免札 for the basho was put in place - basho responsible Takashima about the fear of an effect of Kise's intai on the ticket sales: "We thought that at first, but it looks like they are not that much affected." http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201902090000242.html

Last year's winner Kakuryu made the obligatory visit to the governor of Osaka, to receive the commemorative plate and to do the traditional sumo bout - unlike in Aichi, with the local mascot and not the governor

Kakuryu got lucky there, but at least he didn't pull.

I wish Takakeisho would smile more often 

I've been thinking the same for a while now. He actually looks a quite likeable chap when he smiles; a total contrast to his unappealing 'game face', which somehow manages to be both arrogant and sullen at the same time.

The final touch to the dohyo

the popular paper sumo version

new in the rikishi postcards with old nishiki-e combined

fittingly it's Nishikigi

and Tamawashi

old ones as well - a Kisenosato postcard set on sale at the basho

And Amazon Japan has upgraded the cloud service Amazon Alexa to talk about sumo and give basho results.

of course you have to talk in Japanese:

"Alexa, tell me the sumo results" "... the schedule for the March basho"

and if you ask "Alexa, which is your favorite yokozuna" "... your favorite kimarite" - you'll get a display of the knowledge they put into the thing.

http://kaden.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1173637.html

and the Amazon Echo Spot smart speaker displays the results
