November is such an exciting time for fans of sumo! The “Oh! SUMO EXHIBITION” is currently on display in Fukuoka!

The Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament is just around the corner! On Tuesday 29th October 2019, Yokozuna 鶴竜 (Kakuryu) visited Fukuoka Prefectural Government Offices alongside Ozekis 高安 (Takayasu) and 貴景勝 (Takakeisho). The manager of the Kyushu Tournament, 境川親方 (Sakaigawa Oyakata), also joined the three famous sumo wrestlers. During the meeting, Vice Fukuoka Governor Oomagari said, "I am looking forward to seeing local wrestlers compete, but it will also be exciting to see the Yokozuna and Ozeki in action. I am sure they will generate a lot of excitement!" The wrestlers spoke about their goals for the tournament. Kakuryu said, "The Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament is the final event of the year. I want to put on a good performance and give the fans something to smile about!" Takayasu added, “It has been a year since I was last in Fukuoka to compete. I am really looking forward to the competition. I will give it everything I have got." Takakeisho earned his first tournament victory in Kyushu last year. So it was not a surprise to hear him enthusiastically state, "Kyushu is a memorable place for me. I will do my best to get a good result this year too!"
