Kyushu Basho – 4 Weeks To Go!

While our friends in Japan try to dry off, the rest of us are enjoying fall weather and looking forward to the Kyushu basho in 4 short weeks from today. That means we are 2 weeks away from Banzuke Sunday in the US.

In the mean time, enjoy Herouth’s fantastic Jungyo reports, and check back with Tachiai as we count down the days to 2019’s final sumo tournament.

  1. I keep meaning to put up a banzuke crystal ball post, but I can’t get past the “how many Komusubi will there be?” mess. The fair thing would be four, the recent banzuke committee decisions suggest two, which probably means they’ll go with three 🤦‍♂️

    • Tick-tock, tick-tock. I think it will be three. Four would be fun but then the vacuum at the top of the M ranks would produce some truly bizarre placings.
