A ranking meeting was held for the Sumo Spring Basho, and it was decided that Tochimaru, who had a good record under the Makushita in the spring, will be promoted to Juryo.

The Japan Sumo Association held a summer place ranking organization meeting to be held in May, and decided to promote Tochimaru in the Kasugano stable to the new Juryo.

Tochimaru is 29 years old from Nerima Ward, Tokyo.

He stepped on his first bale in the summer of 2011, and won 4 wins and 3 losses in the spring place, which was greeted at the top of the Makushita with a push sumo.

In addition, Chiyoarashi of the Kokonoe stable will return to Juryo.

The summer place will be the first day on May 8th at the Kokugikan in Ryogoku, Tokyo.
