In addition to the wrestlers it includes some of the Referees (gyoji) and Announcers (yobidashi).

This tournament was won by Takakeisho (his 3rd) while the Juryo championship was won by Asanoyama on his way back up to the top division.

The sole Yokozuna listed on this Banzuke is Terunofuji.

The sole Ozeki is Takakeisho.
