Yusho Portraits

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what happened to the yusho portraits after they were removed from the kogukikan. Some are placed in museums, train stations, but it seems like the rest dissapear.

The removed portrait becomes the property of the yusho winning rikishi.  He can then donate the portrait to museums, train stations, etc. as he sees fit, or keep it within his heya or family archives.

I remember seeing a link from this forum to a Japanese variety show; the episode featured Baruto in his native country.  He had his giant poster in his living room!

How many basho do they stay hung up for? I've tried to count without much success. Which ones were just taken down?

There are eight on each side, 32 altogether. Now do the math! B-)

Thanks. Eight is a nice number, but six would fit in much nicer with the year...
