Dohyo-iri for the Tenno throne ascension ceremony

Recommended Posts

All over Japan congratulatory events take place for the throne ascension ceremony today of the new Tenno, 即位礼正殿の儀

One is a ceremonial yokozuna dohyo-iri in Morioka, the birthplace of maternal great-grandfather of Empress Masako, Yamaya Tanin. But not by ozumo members: the new amateur sumo heavy weight world champion Igarashi did it - he works for the Morioka municipal office. With co-workers as attendants,  in a kesho mawashi from Taketa club for a Taketawaka 竹田若 - not an official rikishi. http://www.sankei.com/life/news/191022/lif1910220050-n1.html

To the main event, from the NSK ex-Kaio (Asakayama) was the one to be invited (not Hakkaku -  or Araiso)

The wide and news shows showed him, but only named the ones before him in the line (especially Oh) - he was among the "and others"
