Ah yes, the Kokugikan’s subterranean chanko chow hall. Many fond memories. It really is a multipurpose space, as the photo shows. They hold many sumo related activities in there, including briefings on appropriate rikishi behavior. Sure wish I could be eating steaming bowls of chanko nabe in there this January, but alas, the stupid pandemic makes that impossible once again

It seems the Pokemon Company will be teaming up with the Nihon Sumo Kyokai for the next couple of tournaments. The Pokemon Company will have banners at both the November and January basho. They'll also be sponsoring kesho-mawashi, and at the January basho, the gyoji will don a special Pokemon-themed outfit.

That's actually quite a badass kesho-mawashi. Is anyone going to be wearing that, or is it just a display piece?

Man, now I'm wishing for them to commission a set of Legendary kesho-mawashi for the yokozuna - like the Regis, the Gen I birds, or the Gen II hounds.

Maybe for the yumitori ceremony?

I want the green fabric.

They both look green to me. A darkish green and gold on the left, and a lighter green and silver on the right.

The NSK presents the kensho and the kesho mawashi: it is for display in the kokugikan, apparently nobody will wear it. Kimura Yonosuke appears in the grass green outfit.

Okay, but how do we order copies of the banners?

Be content with the bigger pics in the kensho thread. I think I'll be able to post the whole set in good quality, like last basho.

Wow. As a long-term Pokemon Go player (first used as a hook to make our junior walk with me a lot, then becoming hooked myself) I "own" most of the displayed pokemon in the game, but I have never expected to see them here. Garchomp FTW!

Pokemon will get a new record for most kensho at a basho by one company: 257

And it looks like more than 200 means more than 200 different ones, Hochi says 218 variations with all kinds of Pokemon http://hochi.news/articles/20220108-OHT1T51079.html?page=1

last time's kensho are on display in the entrance hall

20220108-OYT1I50098-1.jpg?type=mediumo

I doubt that the usual site will post all of them

From the kids TV channel, are they debuting Makuhita and Snorlax at the venue? Nihonoseki oyakata is there as well.

This coincides brilliantly with the release of Legends Arceus in 2022. My kids already enjoy watching sumo when it's on, but they were super excited to see sumo and Pokemon together. My oldest hoped that "the pokemon would sumo fight in the ring". And it got me thinking, maybe it's Hiyonoyama's time to shine!  Can the NHK mascot take down Pikachu?    (Kensho-kin...)

You might want to look at the latest vid: Makuhita gets it on with Snorlax with Nishonoseki watching.
