Terunofuji What happens to the “Yokozuna recommendation ceremony” Grand Sumo Tournament Nagoya Place

■ 12th, Dolphin’s Arena

Terunofuji Ozeki (29) = Isegahama = wins with a close-up to Okinoumi Ayumi (35) = octagon = the fifth piece in the east front. With Yokozuna Hakuho (36) = Miyagino =, he defended all nine races.

“I’m trying to calm down and move forward. I’m just doing it desperately. (In the second half of the game) I’ll do the same thing,” he emphasizes his concentration on the first thing in front of him, but steadily advances to the rope. On the other hand, a difficult problem has emerged after the place.

When it comes to promotion to yokozuna, it is customary to have a transmission ceremony three days after Chiakiraku, practice to hit the rope and enter the yokozuna dohyo four days later, and a yokozuna recommendation ceremony and dedication bales five days later at Meiji Jingu (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo).

However, the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics will be held on July 23, five days after the current location of Chiakiraku, at the New National Stadium near Meiji Jingu. Due to the large number of foreigners visiting the area, the area will be on high alert, and police officers and riot police will be stationed at the shrine. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be on the ground.

In the 30’s of the Showa era, there was an example of a yokozuna recommendation ceremony and a dedication bale about two weeks after the place, but will Terunofuji shift the schedule after the end of the Olympics? Attention is paid to the correspondence.
