Wonderful pictures, Martina, the expressions you captured are marvelous.

While watching the grainy NSK feed, I noticed a row of kimono-clad  
Geisha ladies shuffle into their seats, and one of your pictures  
includes them.  Would you or anyone be aware of who they are, and how  
they happened to attend as a group?

Also, from the feed there sadly seems to be many unoccupied seats this  
tournament.  The audience for early Juryo seems strikingly sparse, and  
for Makunouchi less than usual.  Is the economy having such negative  
effects in Kyushu?

Thank you!
