Awards for rikishi and oyakata

Recommended Posts

Tomokaze gets 1 of the 6 culture (and other) awards for 2019 of his hometown Kawasaki - he gets the Azalea radiance award アゼリア輝賞, 1 of 2. His speedy rise in makuuchi with shukunsho and continuous kachikoshi get a special mention - with the hope of even more success. As the youngest he's on the bottom of the page: http://www.city.kawasaki.jp/250/page/0000110421.html

Mitakeumi yesterday got the Toyodai rijicho award from his university, as the first ozeki to come from Toyodai. 7 rikishi of Toyodai shusshin are presently active. In his comment, Mitakeumi (of course) told he'll aim for yokozuna promotion. https://www.toyo.ac.jp/news/academics/toyo-sports/newslist/20220221mitakeumi/

Kisenosato will get the first citizen's honor award of his other hometown Ryugasaki-city, where he went to the school and which has the Kise museum room that is always shown lately. His parents' home is in Ushiku-city.

This is not an award for rikishi/oyakata - in fact it is specifically for non-wrestlers, but considering how niche and one-off it is I thought it was best left here. If I have overlooked a more suitable thread I humbly ask the mods to do the necessary.

Suginomori Junko (Isegahama-oyakata's wife), Hakuhō Sayoko (Magaki-oyakata's wife) and Kimura Hisanosuke (makuuchi gyoji) received the Sumo Achievement/Effort Award from the Eiraku(?) Club, a successor social club to one founded at the Waseda University. The prizes were for:

  • Suginomori Junko: supporting Isegahama oyakata in producing two yokozuna from Isegahama-beya
  • Hakuhō Sayoko: supporting Hakuhō in winning 45 championships
  • Kimura Hisanosuke: training young gyoji.

Suginomori Junko commented that the award felt like a prize for being in charge of a heya for 30 years. But the more interesting titbit came from Hakuhō Sayoko: she in effect said that Magaki would be a heya owner in August. Seeing as how that coincides with Miyagino-oyakata's retirement, it seems that Hakuhō taking over the stable is on the cards.
