Emperor Naruhito to Attend Day 14

Image result for naruhito"

The new Emperor of Japan, Naruhito, whose enthronement ushered in the Reiwa Era, will make his first official appearance at the Ryogoku Kokugikan on Day 14. Based on previous visits to the Kokugikan by his father, Emperor Emeritus Akihito, we can expect Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako to arrive at the mid-point of the Makuuchi Division to what I anticipate will be great fanfare. The attendance of the Emperor and Empress will certainly make what was already an exciting day of sumo that much better.

  1. That bout is now and they didn’t show the emperor yet on tv, so probably he didn’t arrive in time …

  2. Hakuho cannot be happy to have missed his chance to compete before the new Emperor for the first time.

  3. Torakumi for Day 15 is posted:
    Tokushoryu vs. Takakeisho
    Shodai vs 7-7 Mitakeumi
    Hokutofuji vs Yutakayama
    Kagayaki vs Enho
    Asanoyama vs Ryuden
    Endo vs 7-7 Shohozan
    All of interest to me.
    Shodai win and Tokushoryu loss will lead to a playoff after both 13-2.

    • I have to admit, I’m surprised, they actually did it. They placed Takakeisho and Tokushoryu together on the last day and not the Ozeki.
