Haru jungyo 2020

Recommended Posts

The quota for 2020 has not been specially announced, they were wise enough to reduce in the end for 2019 -  a few "special" extra events are on for e.g. the topic/olympic-jungyo-2020.

The Tochigi 2020 basho will take place on April 18th - the last was in 2009. This one celebrates 10 years of city merger and will have a booth to commemorate the achievements of Tochigiyama, whose 100 years  of yokozuna promotion anniversary was last year. http://www.shimotsuke.co.jp/articles/-/202521

jungyo man Onoe was at the city hall on the 1st with members of the executive committee for the event

(the mayor has maybe no aspiration to give a speech ON the dohyo)

Hopefully they keep the quota down for the jungyo in 2020.

On Apr. 5th a basho is in Gamagori, Aichi, after 27 years again. The tragic local yokozuna Tamanoumi is the main person on the poster - it is a memorial event for 50 years since he was promoted to yokozuna.

Tatsutagawa was at the city hall on the 30th

For the 2nd year in a row there will be a Sakurai jungyo basho - at the so proclaimed place of origin for sumo - before that they had no jungyo for 64 years.

After short glimpses of reason last year, the Haru jungyo has a record number of events: 26, most since the start of the NSK proper jungyo records in 1996. http://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2020012301132&g=spo

Looks like the kyujo numbers are still not high enough. Even if the Natsu jungyo will just be a light Olympic one and the total for the year likely be lower again, this is an extra dense damage scenario.

 

The Ishioka jungyo on Apr. 17th (after 6 years again) has a completely outdated poster now. Maybe Ibaraki local Takayasu will not even be in sanyaku then.
