Imported from Japan and the Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan (Tokyo Sumo Arena).

This is a Picture Banzuke representing the wrestler's rankings for the July 2019 Grand Sumo Tournament (basho) held in Nagoya.  Unlike other character based Banzuke, this one has very colorful images of the top division wrestlers wearing their Kesho-mawashi making for a very striking wall display. In addition to the wrestlers it includes some of the Referees (gyoji) and Announcers (yobidashi).

This is the second tournament of the new Reiwa Era.

The Yokozuna listed on this Banzuke are Kakuryu and Hakuho. 

Ozeki are Goeido, Takayasu, Takakeisho, and Tochinoshin.

Sekiwake are Mitakeumi and Tamawashi.

Komusubi are Abi and Ryuden.  This is their first tournament in the top ranks (sanyaku).

This is Takagenji's first tournament in the makuuchi division.  You can find a list of all the wrestlers here.

This Banzuke has been folded and comes in a flat envelope.    

Banzuke dimensions: 17 1/4" h  x  22 1/2" w
