Photo Journal: New yokozuna in town


Sumo wrestler Kisenosato, who was recently promoted to the yokozuna rank after his victory in the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament, is seen holding the rankings list for the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament to kick off on March 12 in Osaka during a news conference at the Tagonoura stable's lodging facility in Osaka's Minato Ward on Feb. 27, 2017. Kisenosato is listed as a yokozuna in the west slot. Kisenosato expressed his determination as one of the four sitting yokozuna wrestlers, saying, "I'm happy, but at the same time I feel new responsibilities (as a yokozuna)."
