Today the responsibles met to decide that the national event is canceled. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20200426/spo20042619460005-n1.html

One prefecture after the other had canceled its interhigh prelims, some are still only considering to have one, even without the national event.

Prefectures now decide to have sumo among the selected events in their interhigh = koukou soutai or chugaku soutai (inter middle).

Shizuoka in their koukou soutai/interhigh of 32 planned sports events has sumo among 8 that take place, 11 are canceled, 13 are still under consideration https://www.at-s.com/sports/article/shizuoka/student/765451.html

Miyazaki has sumo in the inter-middle events in all districts. An All-Kyushu chugaku soutai event is planned https://www.asahi.com/articles/ASN5G6S37N5GTNAB004.html

- the All-Kyushu interhigh was among the first to be canceled

In Nagasaki prefecture they apparently regret to have canceled their prefecture level interhigh tournaments. Substitute tournaments will be held for most sports, for sumo on July, 12th. https://this.kiji.is/638391550058857569?c=174761113988793844

One big high school level event, the Kanazawa tournament was canceled. It is held each year in May, 103 times so far, the first in 1915. But they are looking forward: their poster says: 365 days till the tournament https://www.advertimes.com/20200527/article314902/

The amateur rikishi now mostly train for the kokutai, the juniors are the other really big high school level event of the year, with qualification  for the winner to enter the All Japan. The kokutai so far has no talk about cancellation.

Today Takeshi's Newscaster show had a short report on the keiko with masks at Kurobane high: they train to put on the mawashi alone - usually a 2nd person helps. No butsukari etc., just the basics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2hWxnqtAeE&t=66m11s

Kumamoto is among those who do not include sumo in the substitute events, for either lack of preparation time or because they don't want to have such a close contact sport at the event. http://this.kiji.is/645578917055743073
Fukushima likewise http://www.minyu-net.com/news/news/FM20200610-506002.php
