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

This is a Picture Banzuke representing the wrestler's rankings for the March 2019 Grand Sumo Tournament (basho) held in Osaka.  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).

Hakuho won this tournament, his 42nd Yusho win, with a 15 - 0 win/loss record or a Zensho-Yusho.  This is also the last tournament of the Japanese Heisei Era (the emperor will change next month).

The Yokozuna listed on this Banzuke are Hakuho and Kakuryu 

Ozeki are Takayasu, Goeido, and Tochinoshin. 

Sekiwake are Takakeisho and Tamawashi

Komusubi are Mitakeumi and Hokutofuji

It is the first Picture Banzuke with Tomokaze, Terutsuyoshi, and and Daishoho in their makuuchi debut.

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

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