今日は俺の故郷!大分・国東半島の天然水からできた、水素水を皆さんに紹介します!!
(許可済み)最近毎日2~3本飲んでたら肌の艶が良くなって体が元気になった感じがします(笑)これは凄い!!
でも、水素水?ってどんな仕組みなんだろう??
気になるσ(^_^;)?

My translation:

Today, my home town! Lots of Kunisaki peninsula's natural water was made, everyone is being introduced to hydrogen water!
(Permission completed) Recently every day when drinking 2 or 3 bottles, my skin's lustre is improving, I can feel my body
becoming healthy! (LOL) That's odd!
But, hydrogen water? What would you call that kind of plan?
Bothered by it(laughter to cover my nervousness)?

Today, my home town! I`d like to introduce the hydrogen water made from Kunisaki peninsula's natural water to everyone.
(Permission completed) Recently every day when drinking 2 or 3 bottles, my skin's lustre is improving, I can feel my body

But, hydrogen water? What is it composed of?
It`s on my mind..

水素水 is "ionized activated hydrogen water."

http://www.alibaba.c...ogen_Water.html

It is patterned after the natural miracle water of Nordenau, Germany and Tlacote, Mexico. Chiyotaikai's mother is a spokesperson for the company producing the water in Kunisaki.

But isn't water with an excess of hydrogren ions also an acid? I assume it is a weak acid here but it is still likely a bit sour, though I've never tried it.

Good day everyone! Riding to Osaka today! By chance, in the back seat was former Ozeki Musoyama and current Fujishima Oyakata (LOL) regarding Osaka he said gambatte, I'll show you how to escape from an 11th kadoban!

I'm not retiring yet! Also still respecting my parents along the way.

First of all in Osaka before arriving, we went to Castella's shop (see his favorite sponge cake treats above), which I introduced to everyone before, the rice cake filled winning Castella! (LOL), I ate 15 of them! Taikai

I think Taikai was saying he would gambarize and show everyone how he escapes his 11th kadoban. It wasn't ex-Musoyama saying that.

OK, I guess there should be a period after the (笑) (LOL) but I was taking it to be a conversation. I can't believe the missing pronouns still throw me for a loop. Thanks as always for the correction.

If he does it, he'll tie Kaio's record for most kadobans.

Also, he says "I don't want to retire!" This gives a slightly different nuance to your translation in that it implies that if he can't get out of kadoban he will probably retire, whereas if he says I'm not retiring yet it might mean that he will keep going as long as he can, regardless of his rank.

Hot, hot, hot as they can be and incredibly delicious!

The store is at the 4th block intersection of Nihonbashi on the Sakai line!

Everyone together (LOL)

So, will we see Castella on his kesho-mawashi soon? It seems like he wants to be their spokesperson and wants us all to come on down for some Baby Castella.

お店は堺筋の日本橋4丁目の交差点です!

The store is at the 4th block intersection of Nihonbashi on the Sakai line!

The store is at the intersection in Nipponbashi yon-chome (fourth block) on the Sakaisuji line.

There is a quirk with the 日本橋 readings: in Tokyo it is Nihonbashi but in Osaka it is Nipponbashi.
The Sakaisuji line is a subway line in Kita-ku (north district) of Osaka. There is a city (and station) called Sakai that is in Southern Osaka, and is incidentally where most of the amateur sumo tournaments in the area are held (including 2005 & 2006 World Sumo Champs).

Once again, thanks for all the corrections guys. Thanks for the pictures too (like the translation fixes, that seems so simple now). I'll use that 'trick' myself next time.

In the case of Sakaisuji that is of course what 境筋 says but I thought the 'line' part of it was 筋 (which also means muscle, tendon, blood vessel or non-body meanings of line like plotline) in which case I thought it would be the Sakai line, rather than the Sakaisuji line. I didn't realize it was the whole name and that you just have to know it is a subway line.

I didn't realize the Nippon/Nihon difference also applied to bashi (which would alone be a bridge). I'm always wanting to translate it as Japanese bridge but I guess there'd be a の in there.

皆さんこんにちは(笑)
今日は必勝祈願で有名な勝尾寺と箕面の滝に行ってきました!!!

自分は霊感が強い方なので行ったらスグに凄く強い良いパワーに包まれてゾクゾクしちゃいました!
このパワーを体に充電したので大阪場所で生かします!!

写真の人は、千代大海、大阪後援会 会長さんです。宜しくお願いします!

Good day everyone (lol)
Today, I went to the Katsuoji temple, famous for prayers of sure victory and to Minoh's waterfall!!!

For myself there was strong inspiration because when I went at once I was wrapped in tremendously good strong powers and I felt chills of excitement!
This power recharged my body so I'm revived for Osaka basho!!

The people in the picture are Chiyotaikai and the Osaka supporters' association's chairman. It's a pleasure to meet you!

Thanks again for the corrections. Why, why, why didn't I read it properly the "strongly inspired person"???? 'Kata na' messed me up; I didn't think it would be person when followed by 'na', I thought it had to be an adjective but 'na node' is 'so'.  Ima wakaru...

Thanks again for the corrections.


Hey Har, keep doing what you are doing. You are doing a good job.

Basically I am a Tokyo person and I can tell you many Tokyo people who have never been to Osaka will say Nihonbashi.

The first time I've been to Osaka, I asked a direction to a Nipponbashi area and was corrected immediately in no uncertain term in Kansai-ben. After that I've never forgotten it. Geograhical names in Japan are nightmares. I can never get it right for most of Okinawa and Hokkaido places.

But you know it's just all a learning process. Things you get corrected, you won't easily forget.

Anyway I am happy that someone is doing Chiyotaikai blog here. I am really anxious to see what happened to him and the lady he had an arranged meeting on Kazuko Hosoki's TV show. I just saw the show and he looked so happy to be finding a possible future bride.

Is that still Hikaru Kawamura? I don't see anything recent about the two of them around. I believe this is her blog: http://blog.excite.c...hikaru-kawamura

Or was he on Kazuko Hosoki's show again recently?  Didn't she tell him to either break it off or get serious on last year's show?

Thanks for the encouragement, BTW. I will endeavor to remember the Nihonbashi/Nipponbashi difference. You're right, place (and people) names seem to be the hardest things.

Actually both Hosoki shows (one on TBS and the other on Fuji) are not gettting renewed and will end at the end of March (Japan's TV season normally starts on April). So we probably won't know what will happen to the new couple.

At the same time there will be less TV appearences for Asashoryu as for years Hosoki has been one of his most zealous apologists in media and has even chartered a plane to visit Asashoryu during his exile in the Dreamland. Asashoryu has shown up on her "Zubari" show right after the Hatsu Basho this year and will likely appear again after the Osaka. Hosoki even declared in his presence his loss to Hakuho on the Senshuraku was for the good of Ozumo. She said Asashoryu lost the battle but he won the Sumo.

Hosoki reportedly asked Dorji to bring along Takasago oyataka but so far the wise oyakata has been resisting as he knows full well once he goes there he will become a sacrificial lamb and becomes her prey. Apparently she is still pressuring Dorji to bring him along in one of her final shows prior to the end of March.

Getting back to Chiyotaikai, he indicated on her show in last May that he was seriously looking for a bride - hopefully a normal office worker, no shobiz type. In the program he asked interested viewers to send in their application and 250 women eventually did. Based on their "resume", Hosoki and the staff came up with a short list of eight women that time. However Chiyotaikai cancelled the next appearence ("arranged meeting" broadcast twice) and by the year end, the six dropped out, presumably they could not wait for the fickle mind and found more suitable prospect.

The remaining two diehard were called in to the studio and appeared on the show - one 30 year old and the other 25 year old. Taikai picked the younger one at the end of the show aired on February 5 because she said she wanted to have many kids and loves to play golf, sharing his interests.

Anyway here's a pic I found of Taikai and Yuka Hatano, his arranged possible bride from the show:

Do we know anything else about her? Is there a bigger picture of her anywhere? Was just looking for matches but it seems to be not an uncommon name.
