Free Event: Yokozuna Deliberation Council Practice To Be Opened To the Public
A joint practice attended by all the top ranked rikishi is held for The Yokozuna Deliberation Council, one of the Nihon Sumo Kyokai's two main advisory bodies, before the start of each Grand Sumo Tournament in Tokyo. Traditionally, these training sessions were closed to everyone but the council members, Kyokai officials, selected guests and the press but the Kyokai has decided to open up some of these practices on a regular basis to the general public.
