Haru 2022

Recommended Posts

Ticket sales are now always with at first 2 pre-advance sale application periods for the official NSK fan club, the 1st is already over, next the same for the public and then the general sales start, this time on a Sunday instead of the usual Saturday, Feb. 13th 10a.m. JST, both on the web and at convenience stores, also phone sales are available again, starting March 6th and even ticket sales at the venue are not ruled out yet (not decided) - Osaka is different.

March will be held in Osaka. 75% capacity to be allowed.

75% in Osaka means about 5500 spectators. 4 person masu-seki will again be for 2 persons, but all ringside tamari-seki and all chair seats will be used - or not

This time the poster as PDF is available from the sales page: https://www.sumo.or.jp/Admission/ticket/Mar/purchase/610/

Hm. I wonder if Ura's appearance is a hint that he is the shin-sanyaku this basho, which might mean Hoshoryu just loses out on a spot.

No, Ura shusshin is Osaka. 
They are capitalising on him being Osaka highest ranking sekitori after the retirement of Goeido. 
 

I am more concerned about the mass migration to Osaka given the strain on its medical infrastructure is so great at this moment that the governor saw fit to declare a medical emergency to abrogate all non-essential medical procedures for the time being.

Have they had to Photoshop in the salt on the Ura poster?

Seems to be way more than his usual pinch...

My guess: they would have added it anyway.  Ura himself has been screened in, and no way they would "grab" the individual salt crystals along with him.

Now, was there someone at either the composition level or the editing level to cross-check on the typical amount of salt Ura tosses, to maintain continuity?

The gomen fuda for the basho has been put in place, no change of plans, about 5500 spectators per day (75%). https://nordot.app/864733633204944896

The ticket information from sumo.pia was a bit cautious and told "planed to be held in Osaka", but I think that was the regular wording recently, not as in the past just "will be held in ..."

After 3 years there will be an (extra) Umekita basho again, on the weekend before the Haru basho. In a new format, officially to appeal to a wider age group, but actually to avoid the rikishi having contact with others - no torikumi, with rikishi from corporate sumo to go against. In cooperation with Mercedes Benz, who provide the car for yusho parade, which is on display. https://www.grandfront-osaka.jp/event/2480/

The better masu seat boxes are all sold out, but chair seats are still available for all days https://sumo.pia.jp/vacant/va03.jsp

- all chairs seats are on sale, no space left in between, so people are likely a bit hesitant

The seats in the Osaka Edion arena are a bit different from the kokugikan https://sumo.pia.jp/seat/osaka.jsp

- they not only have the new S but also SS seats

It might be that the daily voting for the rikishi who showed the most fighting spirit is (maybe for quite a while) now is open to all Grand Sumo App users, not only the paying tanimachi members as it used to be, they don't mention that restriction in the information for watching the basho at home https://www.sumo.or.jp/Watching/guide/Mar/enjoy/610/

- I'll check that during the Haru basho

The Banzuke was released. Will let someone else do the honors of making a thread of it due to my low level of reputation:

 

https://www.sumo.or.jp/EnHonbashoBanzuke/index

Usually there'll be a dedicated full thread + everyone will moan about it in the GTB thread, so we'll leave it to the usual suspects to do. There's also a good amount of added analysis which takes some time to prepare to be posted with the thread.

Since all heyas are travelling down separately, it seems like Tatsunami & Ootake (Taiho) heya have already decamp to Osaka.

Best for everyone to scan their favourite heya social media pages to stay updated. I know Isegahama heya will always be one of the laggards when it comes to Osaka.

I derive immense satisfaction from watching a dohyo get built.

Is it my imagination or has Hoshoryu put on a LOT of weight?
