Join team Tachiai as we cover the final day of the Natsu Basho live. VIP appearances by heads of state, crazy Maegashira yusho winners, and your favorite sumo bloggers up all night. What could go wrong?

We do expect the President to show up at some point close to the and with the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe. The other open question is. will the Emperor attend as well?

Our operatives inside the Kokugikan and stationed in front of their computers around the world will be here to cover all of the action up to the last trophy.

Reminder to readerswe want to keep comments open and running, but if things get too rowdy and political, you may find that they are locked.

Senshuraku Live Blog

UPDATE: The live blog is up –

For more on the President’s visit to the final day of the summer sumo tournament, check here –

Just to give readers early notice, we will be live-blogging senshuraku overnight Saturday into Sunday. We will have friends of the blog live in the Kokugikan, plus team coverage from around the globe tuned in to video coverage. We expect Prime Minister Abe, US President Trump, and possibly His Serene Highness Emperor Naruhito to be in attendance.

As a reminder, we may close comments on some posts, in an attempt to keep political commentary out of our sumo coverage. Frankly I think our current Natsu story lines (which lksumo covers with excellent posts) are far more compelling than any governmental nonsense. So let’s just ignore the elected people, and focus on which one of these guys will take the cup, and if Tochinoshin can find a way to get his 10th win.
