again, this time in Akihabara. The Yokozuna won a tough one against Kotomitsuki to go 7-0 in the current tournament. On the other hand, after going 13-2 last basho Kotomitsuki is now a lowly 1-6.

playing at an Ume Festival at Yushima Tenjin near Ueno Park. Ume are plum blossoms and bloom about a month ahead of the more heralded sakura (cherry blossoms).
