Pink’s Sumo Ranking Charts

Click below to download a three-basho chart which shows the results of the

July Nagoya and September Aki Tokyo bashos–and

the Banzuke ranking for the upcoming November Kyushu basho.

Below is an (old) example detail from one of the charts. If possible, click on the “download” buttons below the example to view and download the chart, either as a JPG or a PDF. PC users can right-click a button to “Save As” the specific version chart. Clicking the image will open the Three Basho JPG chart in your browser. Some browsers don’t do a good job of displaying the JPG however (poor colors), so I recommend using the Download buttons.

New, the “special prizes” are shown for completed tournaments. That’s the Shukun-Sho (Outstanding Performance Prize) and the Kanto-Show (Fighting Spirit Prize). These are not always given out.

Notes about the rankings: After each basho, some rikishi are demoted from Makuuchi level to the second level competition (Juryo). An equal number of rikishi that excelled in the Juryo level competition are promoted to Makuuuchi for the next basho. These promotions and demotions are noted, along with the Makuuchi tournament winner. I tried to make this chart 100% accurate, but errors may exist.
